      Sky Mail sync to Blackberry

      Hi all

      I successfully receive my Sky email via Outlook 2010 - however after reading them (ie on my Blackberry) they still appear as unread in Outlook 2010 - however not the Sky email account itself.

      I have checked some settings but unsure what to check next.


      Any ideas??

      Regards
      Woody

      Probably because it's two different syncs. If you read them on your blackberry nd th open outlook it has to fetch new emails and shows that you haven't read them in outlook since it last synced.

      Thanks for the reply.
      The process works correctly on my hotmail account which I also have via Outlook 2010.
      There is a difference that this is set up via IMAP whereas the sky email is donw via Pop3.
      Would this be the reason for the sync issue?

      Don't think so.

      think its more likely because both are forwarding the emails to different clients.

      outlook and blackberry mail are both reading from hotmail therefore its updated but outlook and blackberry messenger are not linked

      Re: Sky Mail sync to Blackberry

      Hi there - thanks for the reply.

      I don't use Blackberry Messenger - just to recap I have my sky email account on my blackberry Torch which I am able to receive / send etc - however when reading one of my sky emails on my blackberry - it shows as read if I log into my sky email account, however when opening Outlook it still shows it as unread.

      What is confusing me - is that when following the same process for hotmail emails, both the actual hotmail account & hotmail via outlook show the mails as read.

      I hope that makes sense.
      It's not a huge deal - just an Intriguing anomaly.
