‘Cool Hacks: configure Thunderbird to work with your BlackBerry

10 Comments

Before I submitted to the mail client behemoth that is Outlook (or, more specifically, it’s purple Mac counterpart Entourage), I was a satisfied Thunderbird user. Unwilling to make the switch, however, a helpful member of the BlackBerry Nation has devised a way to integrate Thunderbird (on any other non-Outlook email client) with your BlackBerry in an Exchange fashion. Here’s a quick summary of the process.

Thunderbird is the primary email application that is used on a desktop to send, receive and file messages. Blackberry is a secondary email application that is used to send and receive email messages remotely. User needs to (1) use a single email address known to the outside world, (2) be able to receive and send email to and from this single email address from either the Blackberry or Thunderbird, (3) maintain a complete record in Thunderbird of all sent and received email (whether sent or received from the Blackberry or Thunderbird).

While it may sound like a MacGyver-esque process, we have the full instructions posted after the jump, in four quick steps. Post a comment and let us know if the solution works for you.

Tungle offers free BlackBerry scheduler

Comments

Tungle just announced BlackBerry integration aimed to ease meeting schedules, and already plays nice with Outlook, Lotus, iCal, Google Calendar and other platforms. Requests are simply sent via e-mail, and confirmations made through your BlackBerry’s browser. This sounds like a decent solution for us poor souls without an Exchange server, or if you’ve got a bunch of different platforms running that need to work together. You can head on over here to give it a shot, just keep in mind that it’s still in beta.

WorldMate Live updated

Comments

WorldMate LiveThe BlackBerry travel companion of choice just shot off their first newsletter, announcing a few changes to WorldMate Live. For one, the Outlook plugin has been smoothed over with improved compatibility with older versions of Outlook. The biggest change is being able to add and edit itinerary items right from your BlackBerry. This was my primary gripe with WorldMate Live, and it’s great to see the improvement made. It wasn’t even much of a problem, but really just a gap in function. Another cool feature is the ability to CC WorldMate Live for travel confirmations so that bookings are immediately reflected in your itinerary without needing to put it all in through Outlook. This is a great app that helps you keep all of your travel plans together in one spot, so go ahead and sign up for free, and if you’re already hooked up, you can grab the Gold subscription here, which includes flight alerts, status and schedules, along with a handy travel directory and 24/7 customer support.
