blackberry not deliverying the messages to the distribution list of mail server

Dear Experts:



We have outsourced the mail serivces to the mail service provider they have hosted linux server in our network for fetching the messages and distribute across the users mail box, we have created distibution list and many contacts are added in this distribution list.

When users sends mail from the blackberry device to the distibution list, mails are not getting delivered distriubution list users .

But When the user sends the mail the distribution list the using email client from the notebook/workstation then the mail gets delivered for distribution list users.

Is it blackberry service will not allow mails to distribution list or is there any configuration to be done on the blackberry account.

Please help in resolving this.

Hi.
From what I understand the distribution list is handled in the company that hosts your email servers. When you send an email through your client workstation the mail servers from the hosting company is being used while when you send an email through a blackberry device usually the mail server from blackberry is being used.
What kind of contract do you have with your telecommunications company regarding the blackberry mails?
Do you use your mail server as an outgoing mail server in the blackberries?
Please feedback.

Just give a try to send by putting email address of the distribution group to send mail.
2. confirm you are able to send mail via yahoo or some external email address.

As Anuroopsundd suggest try to check if you can send an email to the distribution list from any email account outside of you company (through yahoo for example)
in Blackberry go to settings->Email Settings  find your email account and click edit check that the outgoing server is the same as the on that you have in your office, validate also if you have the user name and password correctly set.
please feed back

Thanks for all for the support, finally could trace the issue in the control panel of the service provider instead of creating the DL (distribution List) user account was created tried deleting the user account and created group account (Distribution list) and added memebers/contacts for the same, just replicated as is of lacal fetch server.<br /><br />Now working fine .
