Can someone explain to me in detail how personal email works with this phone? I have never had a smartphone so this will be my first. I currently have a Windows Live account, and I have it set up with Outlook 2003 on my PC. I have it set up such that when I download my email to Outlook it removes it from the server, so if I was to log into my email via the web interface, any emails that had been downloaded to Outlook wouldn't show up anymore. I wouldn't want it to work this way with my phone though, as I like to keep my "master" email list in Outlook on my PC.
I am just curious how this usually works and what some of the configuration options are.
You esentially want to think of your phones email setup as a web based version of your inbox. You will use it when you are away from your master list to be able to respond to people quickly but when you are at your "master" list you will not be using your BlackBerry.
So my suggestion is to setup your Live account on your BlackBerry so you can view/reply to your email on the go and then when you are at home you will have full control to your "master" list.
