Hi
I am a technician and.........
We want to setup an email service on our blackberry bold 3300 which we use for the office. However we do not want to setup the blackberry service because we do not use it on a daily basis but its main purpose which we want to use it for is to take pictures of information found on site and therefore email it back to the office for immediate research or support purposes to resolve issues found on site (at a client). This mobile phone does come with an email client built-in (blackberry email client) - so how do we configure that so that we can connect via wi-fi or 3G connection to send those emails?

Hi shaunwingin,

You'll need to link the BlackBerry to an existing email account in exactly the same way that you would link any other mobile device to an email account in order to send emails.

Use the Setup > Email Accounts wizard to enter the email details.

Regards,

Mike

Hi shaunwingin,

Problem solved :-)

Your phone service provider has only provisioned the handset for BlackBerry BES services. You need to contact them and ask them to provision the handset for Personal Email services (often called BIS). They will make changes at the network end that will be sent wirelessly to the handset. Once completed, the Email Setup menu will change and allow you to set the email up as required.

Hope this helps,

Mike

NO BIS service is subscribed for. Can one use the BB's email client to access pop3 mail via wifi or 3G network? How does one set this up. Does one need a 3rd party email client?
Which can you recommend?
