Email accounts
Two questions:

1) My 8800 is for my office email (eg: me at which works fine...but isn't there also a native blackberry email addresss (eg: me at do I find out what it is?

2) I currently view my personal email (eg: mypersonalaccount at, via the Rogers Web site, as as well via Outlook (using POP3 settings). Suppose I now want to also access this mail via the Blackberry. I tried simply accessing it via the Yahoo icon, but it says it's a 5c/kb charge. While is true I could forward my personal email to the office, the trouble there is I would no longer have access to my email via the Rogers web or Outlook (unlike Gmail, I need to choose forwarding or POP3- cant have both - if its forwarded, it is not delivered to the Rogers inbox.). Are there other options I am overlooking??

I don't have BES, but I believe you can create an account for yourself on the BIS page.

You should also be able to get this set up using the "BlackBerry Setup\ Personal Email Setup" setting on your 8800
