Hi
I am a technician for a small pc and telecoms company - so........


We want to setup an email service on our blackberry bold 3300 which we use for the office. However we do not want to setup the blackberry service because we do not use it on a daily basis but its main purpose which we want to use it for is to take pictures of information found on site and therefore email it back to the office for immediate research or support purposes to resolve issues found on site (at a client). This mobile phone does come with an email client built-in (blackberry email client) - so how do we configure that so that we can connect via wi-fi or 3G connection to send those emails?

Usually your mobile phone operator provide a blackberry connector to do this. This is a website where you creates an user and configures your blackberry (using blackberry PIN) and your email config (your mail server URL, user and password). I have some blackberrys configures on this way and works well.

Blackberry Enterprise service provides you more control over your devices (p.e remote wipe, block undesired apps, etc) but basic functions (email, voice calls, messaging) is full operational. Ask your operator to get this blackberry service.

You need one of this services, BES or BIS to send emails. This is per design because most interesting feature of blackberry is every byte encripted.

Blackberry devices has no free internet access, is proxy access controlled by RIM. There is no option to configure any mail client over POP/IMAP or his secure versions.

3rd party apps using the built in wifi? No security needed or encryption...

Please take a look: http://www.infotechguyz.com/BlackBerryServer/BlackBerryInfrastructure.html

Connecting through 3G or wifi is inherent.
