Setting Up Blackberry Web Client with Outlook
Is it possible to add my blackberry web client email account to outlook, so I can send and receive messages there as well as on my handheld? If so, what are the appropriate outgoing and incoming server settings? I am using tmobile service if that makes any difference (ie my email is \"[email).

I believe the OP wants to know if one can set up an email client, such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. for his Blackerry email address, as opposed to logging in via the web client.

The steps offered in the previous post regarding Outlook merely demonstrate another method of opening a browser to access the Blackerry Web Client, which is what the OP doesn't want to do.

I believe this question was posted some time ago, and the consensus was that the ability to access your Blackberry email via a POP or IMAP client was not possible. Hopefully it will be offered in the future, as many of us would value such a utility.

Hehe. "And if that doesn't work, please check to see if your computer is plugged in!"

Customer Service!! ARRGGHH! Another reason for user participated BBForums!

The way I do it is by using a separate e-mail address/domain that is forwarded to the BCW(BIS) / handheld and set the reply from as the external account. This way, you don't give out your [email address] to anyone. If someone starts spamming your alias, you can change that, but your real bb account stays the same. Once spamming hits your BB account directly, it'll be hard to filter out in BWC.

Then, I also POP3 that external account so now I have both on my handheld and on the PC. You can set automatic BCC to your address and receive copies of your sent items too.

I don't want to sound negative, and I'd love for someone to prove me wrong, but I don't think it's possible to do IMAP or POP to the web client mailbox. Imagine how much traffic that would cause on a carriers network...imagine that each person has thier outlook set to check every 10 minutes...that's a lot of connections every 10 minutes...
