sending is unfortunately all unencrypted unless you use BES and SMIME or PGP. However, you can access a mailbox using BIS over TLS (secure IMAP or secure POP) if that helps.

No worries. I keep forgetting that not everyone knows the terminology.

BIS is the BlackBerry Internet Service. It's the alternative to BES that doesn't use any server infrastructure behind your firewall. It's ideally aimed at personal and SoHo users as it just synchronises mail. Your carrier will have a web portal where you can create a username/password and then link in your secure POP account.

To set it up, follow the "add email" instructions. You'll be prompted to enter your email address and password for the account and the web site will attempt to auto-discover the settings for you. If it's your own domain name then it will most likely take you to the next step, which is for you to manually enter in your POP3 or IMAP server name. Specify the name and enter in the secure POP port (995) and you're done!

We are using BIS now.....LOL

We forward all email to our BB and "mask" our ATT BB emaill address, so it looks like we send our email from our company email.  
1. if we would like to keep this settings, TLS will not work, right?
2. if we setup pop3 on BB, from my understanding (correct me if I am wrong), we have to shut down outlook if we are not in the office, otherwise, if outlook gets the email, BB will not.  
3. Plus, it is like checking email every 10-15 mins.


thanks

Are you trying to encrypt email from your device TO the sender? in which case only BES with SMIME or PGP will work.

For 2. that's actually an outlook setting. Tell your mail client to leave messages on the server. Alternatively if you can use IMAP then that's much better as then when you mark an email as read on your device it will mark it read on outlook.

For 3. yes that's the other issue. Remember, it's designed to be for personal use, more than business!

Ok if you've already set it up, then click "Edit", then at the top choose "Advanced Settings".
Just above the cancel button will be a check box for SSL. Check that and save.
