just go to profiles or options once you have signed in and you should be able to do it from there.

If you want to change the email to something you use ie [email address] that can be done via the online BWC if its the actual BlackBerry email address you'll need to call your carrier directly to do so, be warned some carriers charge a fee for such a change.

Thanks fireman for the reply.

Im looking at profile now and i dont see any options to change that.
all i see is this :

Quote:
Password
Change your login password.

Secret Question and Answer
Change your secret question and answer.

Sent From Address
Change the Sent From Address that appears in the From field of messages you send.

Email Accounts
Customize your settings to receive messages from other email accounts.

Auto BCC
Send a copy of messages that you send from your handheld to another email account.

Change Handheld
Change the handheld currently used with your BlackBerry email service.

Wireless Delete Options
Enable permanent deletion of messages on BlackBerry Internet Service when messages are deleted from the handheld.

BlackBerry Internet Service Service Book
If you are experiencing difficulties sending or receiving email on your handheld, you may need to send a service book to your handheld.

The service book may have been lost if you installed new handheld software or received a replacement handheld. To send a service book, click Send Service Book.
Under email accounts seems like i can only change external pop3 account emails that i add in there.

Thanks
Laura

Go to the Sent From Address link. Enter the email address he wants. Remember that replies from messages sent from the BB will go to this email address.
