    Alright, here is what I want to do.

    I have 4-5 business emails, already hosted by my buddies hosting company, and I have one email hosted through my ISP(i.e. tampabay.rr.com)

    What I would like to do is have these emails sent to my device. I think a hosted Exchange solution would be what I need. But when I signed up with Sherweb, it appears as if they want me to switch my domain over to them.

    To make it simple, what functionality I would like would be something akin to HotSync's OTA sync feature, where I sync directly with my Outlook on my desktop. This way I don't have to mess with MX settings and the like.

    Maybe some of you folks could help me out where Exchange would download say my tampabay.rr.com email and push it to my 800w?

    Any ideas?

    You would have to forward it to an exchange account that would push to poutlook.

    Set up an Exchange account and forward any mail you want to your exchange account to have it pushed. Alternatively, some hosted Exchange places have aggregation services. Mail2Web provides a free aggregator that will go and pick up mail from any number of accounts once an hour.

    So, basically, forward it from server side to exchange? Would the email address be 'unique', and the response would be sent from the recipient email?

    Yes.

    However, again I point to Mail2Web. If you pay their monthly fee you can set your send from to a familiar email address. That's what I'm doing and it works wonderfully.

    Would the emails be sent in such a fashion on the same exchange:

    email sent to xxxx.com, mail is forwarded to Exchange, mail is sent to Treo. I answer email, sent to exchange, sent from xxxx.com.

    I need to do this with 4 addys in one domain, and one addy from another domain. Is this possible?

    Thanks very much for help to you all.

    To my knowledge you can only send from one domain. That's all I've ever seen. I've not researched it, though, as I've not had a need so I won't say it's impossible.

    You need a blackberry with BIS for that. I cant think of anything else that will let you associate multiple spoof "sent from" addresses.

    That is what I was afraid of. Somebody would make a killing if they could design software to basically allow us to ActiveSync with desktop via the internet.

    I've heard of an app that would do it but I do not remember the name... You may want to search around a bit. However, I don't know if it would let you send from multiple addresses either way.

    Thanks. I would not know what to search for though to find it.

    Question, Why do you need active sync for all of them? Why not use that for one (primary account with calendar, addressbook & tasks) to poutlook and just add email accounts on the handheld for each of the others. Regardless of domain association, all could receive and send mail with the right identifying info showing. Not a problem if you can share address book and PIM data. Forgive me if I've misunderstood your objective; but, what I've described is very easy, quick and cheap. hth

    This is true... You just won't get 'push' on the other accounts.

They're only $9.99/month for an unlimited size hosted exchange account (includes a free copy of Outlook 2007) and they have free 24/7 phone and email support. Extremely helpful whenever I have a question and I've never experienced any downtime with them in the year I've been with them.

    You simply setup your RR account to forward to your hosted Exchange account, tell ITSN what you want your email address to be/say when sending email (username@tampabay.rr.com for example) and that's it. Highly recommend you give them a look!

    Situation like the OP question makes me long for a ChatterEmail-like solution on WM. Imap IDLE push, multiple reply-to addresses etc *sigh*. There is no software like that in the WM world.
    If you only want to sync email, best case would be an imap client solution, of which the best known is flexmail, but it ain't Chatter.
    If you also want to sync contact, tasks, calendar etc, then you need Exchange account.
    Also be aware that Pocket Outlook do not give notification on new email arriving straight to inbox subfolder. I don't use flexmail so I don't know if it does notify a new email arriving in a subfolder.

    Well, the other solution I just thought of is the Sprint Mobile Email Client. This is a quasi push solution that works with up to 3 accounts. My wife uses it for aol on her 755 and it has been solid for a few months.

    It uses a backdoor SMS to initiailize a pull on the client/device side.

    I couldent find a link but I know a WM version exists. It is free too.

    Unfortunately I already signed up with Sherweb, wonder what the chances are of getting a refund? Probably slim to none. How many POP accounts can your solution provide?

    Right, but then you are receviing all mail in a single box and sending out through multiple correct?

    It only provides one Exchange account. You can forward as many accounts to it as you want though. In addition to the hosted Exchange service, you might want to pick up a program called Flexmail, which I think I remember reading will let you reply from different email addresses.
