Default POP/IMAP Email Client

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm new to Blackberry and am connected to the corporate BES. Is there an email client that I can buy to sit alongside the main email client to allow me to receive my personal emails either using POP or IMAP?

Thanks in advance.

If your BES administrator allows it, you'd use BIS to link your POP3 or IMAP email accounts to your device.

BES Users FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

There is no client that would get installed on the device itself. That's not how BlackBerry devices work.

Get Flurry Mail. It's a Java app and works very well on BB, it does not have an auto notification of email setting but you can set it up to send you an sms notification. Also you will need to poll manually but it is a good service with clean interface and it works very well. Multiple email addresses can be used.

This of course depends on whether your BES will allow installation of 3rd party apps or not.

Unless something has changed in the past few days, Flurry does not support the BB, and they are trying to get a BB client to work.

Besides, why use another client when the OP already has ten available BIS accounts he can configure from his BES account (if allowed by the admin)?

Search the FLURRY Forums, somewhere in there they have .jad & .jar files posted. Install from media card and it works great. I've used it on the 8100, 8300 and tried it on my 8310 also, all worked great.

Here's the link

Download the MIDP2 version:
Flurry Forum :: View topic - NEW FLURRY RELEASE: Ver. 01.02.18

I must also add that I used Flurry before my provider began offering BB services in Sept. Flurry worked very well with a standard data plan via TCP.

Does flurry support IMAP folders yet? That is one thing I don't like about having my personal email delivered to my BB via BIS, I have all my mail organized into folders and rules on my mailserver that move the messages around so my client doesn't have to do that work.

I just tried out LogicMail and it doesn't seem to be the most feature rich application, at least I can get to my IMAP folders and view whats in there. Kinda wish it supported attachments if for nothing else then being able to forward them, but they get lost when forwarding an email with an attachment.

I'll give them points for having full SSL support though!

I'm not sure about that, I know they have some new features, but since I have BIS finally I haven't been using it. Best thing would be to go to the website and investigate.
