You can still forward work email via outlook to your BB account/ IF you just bought this and have not set up a Web client account through your carrier, call them and do so, you need a data plan to be able to use your email and do browsing. If on the other hand this is a BB supplied by your work I would go to the person in charge of the Blackberries or IT department and ask them to help you activate the BES.
I bought a BB from somebody on a BES, the phone is still restricted and the person doesn't know how to get his company to remove it from the BES. How can I get this overrided or fixed?
