How can I get two work emails on Blackberry 9700?

I have two work emails. One for myself and one for my team I'm in.

I need to have access to both those emails constantly. At the moment I have my own work email on my Blackberry 9700 BUT now I need the team email on my Blackberry too.

I tried creating a profile on BES for the team email and then tried activating it on my phone but this activation did not work.

Am I doing this wrong? Has someone managed to do this before?

One way to solve this is to forward "the team e-mail" to your mailbox.

Create a folder (like TeamEmail) your Inbox and create a rule to move all the e-mail from team e-mail to that folder.

Under BES setup to redirect "TeamEmail" to your BB.
I don't think that BB able to active 2 email account on on unit. Like clonyxlro commencts, better to do mail forwarding and rule.

I created a rule to send TeamEmail to my personal email inbox. It does not popup in my mobile.

I'm not sure if I have to do something in BES?

Did you forwarded in Exchange your Team mailbox to your account?
If you did that and you have all your Team e-mails forwarded to TeamEmail folder open BlackBerry Manager right click on your user and select "Choose Folders for Redirection" -> Redirect the following selected folders -> Select (TeamEmail) folder

I found just creating a fwding rule on my team email to my personal email worked fine BUT we have contacted blackberry and they have said there is a way to enable 2 BES accounts on one phone. I will post the details on how to do this when we get all the details from blackberry :) Thanks for all the help!
