Hi - currently I have Exchange 2003 successfully forwarding a copy of all incoming emails to my Blackberry via sending them to our user account at the user@instantemail-t-mobile
.co.uk server. We used to collect email via my ISP and pop3, where the ISP forwarded a copy to t-mobile and thus to the Blackberry. This worked well if our internet connection went down, as emails would still come into (and one could send out from) the Blackberry. I've just realised, having implemented Exchange (and SBS2003 R2), that now that Exchange does the forwarding, this would no longer happen and emails could thus not be received on the Blackberry as a kind of backup.
We currenty have our Exchange Server sitting on a dynamic IP (www.xxx.dyndns.info
), with this dynamic URL as the highest priority MX record on our domain hoster's configuration panel. To have some kind of backup I implemented (with some misgivings actually) www.dyndns's
Mailhop Backup MX service, and thus now their backup mail server occupies the second position on our MX records list.
With this in mind, can someone see a way of getting emails to our domain flowing to our Blackberry even if Exchange and /or our ADSL connection is down?
