Calendar trick for Webmail + Blackberry users

I use webmail and Blackberry as my primary email clients.  And I am a heavy user of the webmail shared calendaring system.  The webmail calendar does not yet sync to Blackberry devices, so here is how I "sync"…

A feature of Blackberry is that it will automatically add all meeting invitations that are received via IMAP to your Blackberry calendar.  So all invitations that I receive from other people already automatically appear on my Blackberry calendar.  In order to add my own events to both calendars, all I do is add it via webmail and invite myself to the event… it then automatically shows up on my Blackberry calendar.

Prediction: meeting invite spam

    Bill, thanks for the Blackberry Calendar Sync trick for Webmail. My business partners are HUGE Webmail Fans also by the way, we now have 90% of our managed hosting clients converted as well. I am going to be sure to share this with my business partners also, they are Blackberry carriers, I am a Treo guy myself, recently changed to the AT&T 8525 so I still rely on Outlook.
