Yes.

But you'll need to install Opera Mini to do it. The Blackberry browser doesn't seem to work.

Authentication is the issue. I setup this a while ago for mobile users: OWA For PDA, Outlook Web Access for PDA, OWA PDA, OWA-PDA.

It's just a front end for OWA but it takes care of the authentication and screen scaling. Works great. Must be somewhat popular as it looks like they raised the price.

I have two separate accts that access OWA via push mail. I use the same link in my setup as I would as if i was accessing from my PC.

https://mail.domain.net/Exchange/

Your company must enable this. Try it out

You need a Blackberry Data Plan to get email on a Blackberry. When you sign up for the plan you will get the right icon to setup personal email.

I have mine working on OWA. I use BIS with Rogers and it allows for OWA.

For yours, you would navigate to BlackBerry Internet Service for AT&T.

Log into that or create a new account if you haven't already.

Under Email Accounts, click Set Up Account.
Put in any email and any password (make them the same though). Basically, we want it to fail. And click Next. It will do it's "processing" for a minute and then ask for Additional Information.

Select "I will provide the settings to add this email account." and click Next.
Select "This is my work email account." and click Next.
Select "I can access my email account using a Web browser (Outlook® Web Access)" and click Next.

As for the settings, that's up to you. Now I will note that it took me some tinkering to get mine to successfully log in. Here's why. I have my own domain controller/exchange server at home. My log in name is "Firstname Lastname" with the space in there. I ended up having to use "Firstname [email address]" for the username.

But once you get the right settings, you should be good to go. I had read that this setup was the type that would only send emails every 15 minutes. But mine hit my blackberry a second before they even hit my Outlook, which is connected right to my network. So it's pretty fast =)

Hope this helps!!!!!

You will get html email unless your company has an IT policy that prevents it. When you're on the corporate BES you're subject to whatever rules they stipulate, no matter how dumb they are. It may be an IT policy that prevents you from adding email accounts with OWA access. Actually that's quite common for BES IT policies.
