BB mail? Are you referring to the carrier supplied email address? There is no way to send/receive/read mail to that account other than on the BB itself.

Smile Yes you can !

Can you access blackberry mail from a laptop?

Yes, you can but, not directly. You have to forward the emails of this account to another email address. Login to your Blackberry account from your Operator website, Click on “Edit” icon of that account.
You will be forwarded to the edit page. In the “Auto Forward to” field, type the address of the email account like Yahoo or Gmail.

You can specify an Auto forward email address for your BlackBerry® email address. When you specify an Auto forward email address, BlackBerry® Internet Service automatically forwards a copy of all email messages, including all applicable attachments and content that you receive on your BlackBerry device to the email address that you specify.
Hope this will resolve your issue.
Please let me know if this resolve the issue.
Regards !

Way back in the day you could log into your BIS page and get your carrier-supplied email on your pc. You never could set it up to download that mail into Outlook or any other local client, but you could access it through the web interface.

BIS 2.4 (IIRC) ended this access about 4 years ago.

I had a time when I was getting a MASSIVE number of emails every weekend through that account. It was a highly irregular situation, but having pc access was the only way to clear them. I had an older 7105t BB and my account was inaccessible via the BlackBerry itself. T-Mobile had frozen it because this amount of incoming mail was apparently a TOS violation. I had deleted the account from the device, but the account was still getting reamed with mail. I was getting nasty advisories from TMO that I was facing cancellation and could no longer add the account back to my BB. Using a pc I could log into my BIS page and delete the emails by the bunch to clear the account.

I had set an Outlook rule, against corporate policy, to forward my incoming mail to my TMO BlackBerry account. That account snuck under the radar and was allowed to be used in the rule. When a firm-wide desktop OS upgrade went horribly wrong they went into emergency recovery procedures. Those procedures included resending a year's worth of email to everyone's inbox. They were all deleted until they got to the most recent ones, but the forwarding rule I had instituted did it's magic before the deletions. Because the update nuked our office computers, I had no rules on my account that I could see, but this one rule was still in effect on the server side.

Quite the nightmare, and I was lucky to avoid being fired. I think they actually wanted to shoot me, but they were too embarrassed I had circumvented IT Policy so easily, and the fact that I was so far down the food chain there was little risk that I received any critical information.

Nope. You should be integrating an email account with BIS that offer the method of access that you require. Do not use your *.blackberry.net email address.

Lots of reasons NOT to use that account. Only being able to read mail on the BB is just one of them.
