    Hey guys, I am porting over from a blackberry and i used to use something called Blackberry email redirector. Which would actually forward the emails to me, as long as redirector was running on the desktop.

    Since I dont have access to outlook exchange via wireless phone (i'm in tech support, but dont have exchange access from anything other than my desk).

    Is there an app, or program, that will forward emails from my outlook inbox at work and forward to my D-Inc? Something like a blackberry redirector but for the D-Inc without having to use exchange ?

    I tried to do a forward rule in outlook at work to forward any email sent to me to my yahoo account, but for some reason the rule is not working and not forwarding to me.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get work email, without using exchange, any app or something like that ? that can send duplicates to my phone, and will allow me to respond with my work address ?

    When I had my blackberry I set-up of a rule to forward from work Outlook to my gmail account and/or my blackberry email acct and it worked fine.

    Your IS Department probably has a rule on their Exchange Server that blocks auto forwarding. They do this to prevent someone from forwarding from work to home and then at some point in the future forwarding from home to work creating a loop.

    Yeah i agree, they probably blocked autoforward to outside accounts. I wonder if i put my information in mail setup, if i'll be able to access my email without letting the IT department know. Almost like just putting in my credentials and seeing what happens. but i dont think my phone will access the exchange server, unless it's public.

    so i guess there is no such thing as "desktop redirector" like with a BB? that program used to forward all your email to your phone, and even let you send email as your work account from your phone because the program was constantly communicating with RIM then back down to your phone.

    If I try to add/mail and I use the exchange option, I only have the internal Ip address for the exchange server, so obviously i wont be able to set that up, unless the exchange server replies to a ping outside my business network.

    Does anyone do anything else for work emails ?

    If they are blocking your emails being fowarded than an app like desktop redirector wouldnt work anyways.

    I am not allowed on our exchange server either, I just tell them that I dont get emails out of the office so dont expect me to answer anything. I also told them since it is my personal phone dont call or text me on it. When it becomes inconvienent enough for them they will make exceptions.
