Ok, before you start answering this post with "Do a search for that" or "That's what the search button is for", please understand I am so new to Blackberry's that I don't even know what to search for!
The reason I got a 8700 is I do work for some companies that send jobs out via email. I need to receive these as quickly as possible in order to secure the job before someone else grabs it. I use a SBCglobal.net email account and have my desktop Outlook set to check it every minute. Is it possible to set the blackberry to do the same thing when I'm out?
All help is greatly appreciated and Thank you in advance.
Assuming that your SBC email is POP3 or IMAP you need to configure your handheld to fetch it. You should have an icon on your BlackBerry labeled 'Setup Internet Email'. If you havent created a BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) account yet, you will be prompted to do so. Then its just a matter of entering your SBC email address and password. BTW, what BlackBerry service provider are you using?
If you're using a BIS, see if you can get your work email address to forward mail to your BIS email account. That one arrives almost instantly on your Blackberry. All others will work on a 15 minute poll, so that might lose you valuable time.
