Default Unable to setup E Mail

Please Login to Remove!

This is not a BES post but after looking at the different areas this seemed like the best place to post this message.

I am running a Linux Mail server (SME). I can send and rec mail no problem from my desktop using Thunderbird and I can access the mail server via its web interface and get mail that way as well but when I try to set up my Blackberry to get mail from this account it errors out during the setup. I read the info on the Blackberry site and used the online utility to configure an existing E Mail account for use with a Blackberry but I still error out saying that the attempt to configure the BIS to deliver mail was unsuccessful. I have successfully configured my BB to get mail from my personal E Mail account with my ISP. Anybody have any ideas what I am missing?

Default Easy way to Sync your Thunderbird email with Blackberry

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but I found a pretty simple way to configure my Blackberry to work with my Thunderbird email client. See "Confinguring Blackberry with Thunderbird or other Non-Outlook Email Applications" (second Google search result if you search for "thunderbird blackberry" as of today). I hope this helps you.
