Also, you should be able to setup your GMail using the same method you used for your @rogers mail. Use the "setup internet email" icon or go to the Rogers BIS site and set it up there.

No, there isn't. You can only view those messages on the BlackBerry itself.
Honestly, you should NOT be using that email address for anything. You're opening yourself up to a world of headaches once you start getting spam on that address. There's no way to stop it, and it will eventually happen.

As I tell everyone... DON'T USE YOUR @carrier.blackberry.net EMAIL ADDRESS! You don't need it. Just delete it and switch to GMail or Yahoo.

Try setting up your GMail using the BIS web portal for your carrier as John Clark mentioned.

https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=rogers

It should be as simple as logging into BIS, adding a new E-Mail Account, and entering your GMail address and password.
