Default What is the point in creating an online account?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been reading that some people have an account which they setup with their provider e.g. in my case 02. This allows them to check e-mail on the computer (amongst other things).

What is the point? I ask because KB14378 says:

"BlackBerry Internet Service provides new BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers with an Automatic Login feature that does not require a username or password to be typed when accessing the account directly from the BlackBerry smartphone."

"To change from Automatic Login mode to requiring a user name and password, and to use a computer browser to access the BlackBerry Internet Service, complete the following steps:"

The quote suggests to me that if this system is setup then one has to login on the BB every time one wants to collect e-mail? That can't be correct surely?

No. Its relating to logging in to BIS where you setup the email accounts, edit the email accounts, create filters.

It's not about email push to the phone.
