Default Using laptop to send mail while using BB as modem

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 8830 with Sprint service. Since I can use my BB as a modem, I no longer have an ISP. Does Sprint Blackberry have an SMTP address that I can enter into Outlook so I can send mail via the laptop?

Before:

Incoming: pop.domain.com
Outgoing: smtp-server.hvc.rr.com (roadrunner)

Thanks

I don't believe there's a SMTP address from Sprint you can use. I created a Gmail account and use their outgoing server.

Wouldn't it be cheaper, and faster, to use a wireless card on the laptop? Aren't you using air time with the BB?

Faster yes, cheaper no. You get unlimited data with most BlackBerry plans
