    Hello,
    Can i set up an online wireless sync account for my corporate emails and then set up a yahoo account directly on the phone in the Messaging section? I dont like how Wireless Sync dumps both corporate and personal emails into 1 inbox.. And how you can only reply to both sets of emails with one address..
    What is the difference between Wireless Sync and setting up email on the device itself anyways??

    That's an enormous question - you would be best to call Verizon to get them to explain Wireless Sync in-depth to you. We could be here all day otherwise :-) They are the experts on what it can and cannot do. There are some descriptive documents on the Verizon business section of their website detailing the specs for Wireless Sync and you may get more on www.sync.com from the makers of the product.

    How about the first part of my question? Could i set up a pop3 email account directly on the device AND have a Wireless sync account for my corporate emails?

    Yes, you can. I have WS running for my corporate email, and I separately configured my personal IMAP account on the device (this will work for POP, too). The IMAP and corporate accounts go to different mailboxes on the 700w. In Messaging: menu > tools > new account.

    i thought it would work.. But the Verizon data specialist i was talking to said it probably wouldnt.. She said it might work for a while but it would eventually "confuse" the device with 2 different syncs going on at the same time.. I dont get it?!

    Please remember that Wireless Sync as well as Messaging client built into 700w do not work with HTML mail sources. Only POP3, IMAP, or Exchange. The exception is Hotmail/MSN Mail because Microsoft provides the client application. To get Yahoo Mail either via Wireless Sync or via MS Messaging application, you must have a paid ($9.95 per year) Yahoo POP account, not the free consumer HTML account.

    I'm way ahead of you on that one MobileKitty.. I've had my Pop3 yahoo account for about 2 years now... Thanks for the reminder though

    Now there's a high-tech term for you, "confuse." I have to wonder who's confused, the device or the support specialist...

    I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work, but bottom line: why not try it? As long as you set the POP account to leave mail on the server, you don't have much to lose. I've had my 700w configured as above for a couple of weeks, and the device hasn't lost its mind yet.

    If you have POP access for Yahoo then Wireless Sync will work. This is assuming that the carrier edition Verizon is using is identicle to the enterprise version of the software. Contrary to what the "specialists" @ Verizon will tell you.

    Good Luck.

    Right now i have both my corporate and Yahoo (pop3) set up through wireless sync. So yes - they are both pop3. Can anyone think of ANY reason as to why i shouldnt set up my corporate through Sync, and my yahoo through the Messaging Client? I sure cant.. UNLESS i have the messaging client set to sync every 15 minutes or so and both it and the Wireless Sync are trying to collect email at the same time... Any thoughts?
