Whatís the best advice: Iím getting a blackberry (either 7290 or 8700óbut my question really isnít which BB I should get)

All I basically want to do is to read my yahoo emails on my blackberry as Iím out and about most of the day and I need to read my yahoo emails.

What should I do? How do I set it up? Is this officially forwarding? POP3? Etc.? Iím not familiar with many of these terms. Note: I did pay extra for that mail extra yahoo service so Iím ready to go. As I posted on another posting, I have about 80 Meg of emails sitting in my inbox!! So I assume I need to pare this down quite a bit or else itíll mess up my blackberry. Let me know. I was not sure if when I first set up yahoo with blackberry if all of my emails saved in my INBOX in yahoo would move to the blackberry, or if just new emails from that point forward would go to the blackberry. Does anyone know for sure?

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance for your help. Iím curious what different people suggest!

On Yahoo go in to Options and you'll see Pop Access and Forwarding, so you can forward your Yahoo mail there. BlackBerry compresses the emails a fair bit so you'll get some data reduction there, but you may want to set up a SPAM filter at Yahoo just to make sure no unwanted crap is coming over to the BlackBerry. Also, when setting up the forwarding it will only forward emails from that point on - the 80MB of mail you have already won't be sent accross to the BlackBerry

the problem w/ forwarding is that i don't believe Yahho! leaves a copy in the inbox
the better solution would be to enable POP access; set up a BIS address and add the account - if your carrier is using BIS 2.0 the email arrives right away

also it will POP will only send new email to your handheld - not old
you can set up filters to stop certain emails from going to your handheld from the BIS sit

That is easy and you have chosen wisely: Yahoo is integrated well with blackberry.

Specific steps depend on version of BIS your account is on. In general, you have to login to your blackberry account with Web browser from desktop, and add your Yahoo email address to list of email accounts your blackberry will be getting emails from.

Today, if you are buying blackberry from Cingular your Yahoo emails will be delivered to blackberry with 5-15 minutes delays, but if you go with TMO it will be instant. Who is your carrier?

Do not worry. Blackberry will be getting only emails that arrive to your account after you connected it to blackberry.

Interesting. I have TMO and wondered why it is I was able to add my free Yahoo email account (not a premium POP3 Yahoo account), and why the Yahoo emails come to the berry almost instantly (I tested). So TMO is the answer to both questions?

@OP, get the 8700. I know you say email to begin with but you'll find the BB to be addictive.

That is correct. TMO for GSM blackberry, but also Verizon, Sprint, Nextel.

This occurs w/ any carrier who has gone to BIS 2.0 - so not just T-Mobile
