Default Imap

Please Login to Remove!

i am using BB curve v4.2.2

i am trying to setup my account, but everytime i set it up, it decide that it is POP3 instead of IMAP
i am 100% sure that my email is an IMAP (i paid extra to have it IMAP), and i am using it from my laptop as an IMAP.

how can i manually change it to IMAP ? (there is not option to do so)

Go to GMail site for instructions on how to manually do settings on blackberry for IMAP gmail and enter the settings for your email.

At least that would help u get into the manual settings mode...

Go to Gmail site which explains how to set BB up for Gmail's IMAP.
It will explain how to force bb to accept IMAP settings instead of automatically going for POP3 settings.
