First things first - I am a newbie here and to bb. So, begging pardons in advance if I seem to be doing some 'silly' mistakes.
I have scoured tons of internet material including this forum and others as well as bb's own site and have gone through the documentations. Have become something of someone whom my friends approach to setup their e-mails on their bb.
Sad part is I am not able to get my work e-mail setup on mine
To put it in a nut's shell,
1. I am trying to setup my work e-mail OWA on my bb
2. Trying this through my operator's website (tried it on my bb - i am yet to get used to the keypad, so my laptop to the rescue)
3. My company IT guys told me that they will not disclose the POP/IMAP port numbers - hence was forced to go the other way. Tried the auto-forward to private mail option as well - blimey! our IT guys are so paranoid they have blocked this too.
4. Could not wiggle out the IP address of the OWA from the IT team - finally, me dumb wit, found it on the OWA page itself. Below are the details.

5. Tried out the details on my laptop's internet browser and my bb's browser; they were working fine
6. Got the details from the KB05333 documentation and fed them in the page in order with details from 4 & 5 above
7. The moment I hit a 'Next' after I enter the details, the web site seemed to take offence and screamed back "Cannot connect to email server or invalid server name"
8. Checked the web again and tried various combinations (like http's' which I need to use) and so on - with the same disastrous result
After trying out for more than a week, I am this close to being desperate. Could some kind souls point me in the right direction please? Appreciate the help in advance
PS - My wife always tells me that brevity was never a strong point with me
- apologies for the long story
