Default 7290 Software recommendations

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a Blackberry 7290 for my wife. Overall it seems very useful and easy to use.

Two questions that I have

1) What would be a recommended software suite/application for a medium to high level user that would mostly be checking and writing emails?

2) We use webmail on the internet. From my laptop I would type www. sitename:8383, then login using the login box. When I try this on the blackberry I get a 404 file not found error. Checking web based email client is very important to her so I am wondering if any forum members have a solution for this issue?

I am considering forwarding the email account to the blackberry email and that would work but it would also take all the spam along with it. I would much more prefer that she could check the mail via the blackberry internet browser. That way she could read or respond only to the messages that she wanted to.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated

With the handheld software I would always suggest the latest version that your wireless service provider has on their web site and as for your webmail... You may have issues with that port as your wireless service provider will block some of them. Anyway who is the provider?
