About the messaging service plans for the
BlackBerry Internet Service
There are multiple messaging service plans available for the BlackBerry Internet Service. Each messaging service plan
offers a different set of features. Depending on your messaging service plan, and device operating system, you might not be
able to set up a BlackBerry email address or add existing email addresses to your BlackBerry device.
For information about your messaging service plan, contact your wireless service provider.
Basics
About finding the web address for the BlackBerry
Internet Service
To access your BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser, you need the web address that your wireless service
provider uses for the BlackBerry Internet Service website.
To find the web address, try performing one of the following actions:
•
Check the documentation that came with your BlackBerry device.
•
Check your wireless service provider's website.
•
Search the Internet for "BlackBerry Internet Service" and the name of your wireless service provider and your country.
•
Contact your wireless service provider for the web address.

Getting started
Open the email setup application
Depending on your wireless service provider and the version of the BlackBerry Device Software that is installed on your
BlackBerry device, the email setup application might not be available.
On your BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device, do one of the following:
•
On the Home screen, click the Setup icon. Click Email Accounts.
•
On the Home screen or in the Setup folder, click the Email Setup icon or Email Settings icon.
About accessing the BlackBerry Internet Service for
the first time
The first time that you open the BlackBerry Internet Service email setup application or visit the BlackBerry Internet Service
website, you can add a supported email address. On a BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device you can also set up a BlackBerry
email address.
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, you might not be able to add email addresses or set up a BlackBerry
email address for your BlackBerry device.
You might want to add an email address if you have an existing supported email account that you want to access from your
BlackBerry device.
On a BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device you might want to set up a BlackBerry email address if you do not have another
existing, supported email account or if you need an additional email address that you can use to send and receive email
messages.
Create a user name and password to log in to your
BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser
on a computer
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
If you access your BlackBerry Internet Service account using the browser on your BlackBerry device and you want to
access your BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser on a computer, you must create a user name and
password for your account. Your user name and password are only required to log in to your account using a browser on a
computer. After you create a user name and password for your account, the next time you access your BlackBerry Internet
Service account from your device, the BlackBerry Internet Service automatically logs you in to your account.
If BlackBerry 7 is installed on your device, you cannot create a user name and password to log in to your BlackBerry
Internet Service account using a browser on a computer.

Troubleshooting
The BlackBerry Internet Service did not prompt me to
log in with my user name and password
If you have a user name and password for your BlackBerry Internet Service account and you access your BlackBerry
Internet Service account using the email setup application or the browser on your device, the BlackBerry Internet Service
automatically logs you in to your account. You only need to type your user name and password when you log in to your
BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser on a computer.
I can't create a user name and password for my
BlackBerry Internet Service account
If you have BlackBerry 7 or later installed on your BlackBerry device, you cannot create a user name and password to log in
to your BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser. Your BlackBerry Internet Service account is associated with
the BlackBerry ID that you used to set up your device, therefore you cannot create a user name and password for your
account.
You cannot use your BlackBerry ID to log in to your BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser.
The BlackBerry Internet Service website displays the
incorrect language
If you are able to access your BlackBerry Internet Service account using a browser, you can choose the language that you

Email address basics
About adding email addresses
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, you might not be able to add email addresses or set up a BlackBerry
email address for your BlackBerry device.
When you add a supported email address to the BlackBerry Internet Service, the BlackBerry Internet Service creates a link
between the BlackBerry Internet Service and the email account that is associated with the email address you added.
This link enables you to send and receive email messages on your BlackBerry device using your email address. With the
BlackBerry Internet Service, you can add up to ten supported email addresses. BlackBerry 7.1 and earlier devices also
support the creation of one BlackBerry email address. If you add email addresses for more than one email account, you
can access all of your email messages in the messages application on your device.
Email messages continue to be delivered to the existing email account as they were before you added the email address to
the BlackBerry Internet Service.
You can add email addresses that are associated with the following email account types:
•
Email accounts that you access through your Internet service provider
•
POP or IMAP email accounts that you access through your Internet service provider
•
Email accounts that use a Microsoft Exchange server that you access using Microsoft ActiveSync, Microsoft Outlook
Web Access
Note: Depending on your Internet service provider, you might not be able to add email addresses that are associated with
certain email account types. For more information, contact your Internet service provider.

User Guide
Setting up existing email addresses
If you add an email address to your BlackBerry device, email messages that you open or delete on your device might be
marked automatically as opened and deleted in your email account. Deleted email messages might reconcile with the
deleted items folder in your email account. Email messages that you send from your device might also reconcile with the
sent items folder in your email account. For example, if you have a Microsoft Outlook Web Access email account or an
IMAP email account, email messages that you send from your device are copied to the sent items folder in your email
account. Likewise, email messages that you delete are copied to the deleted items folder.
Depending on the email address, email messages that you open from your email account inbox (for example, by accessing
your email account using a browser on a computer) might be marked open on your device. Email messages that you delete
from your email account inbox might be deleted from your device.
If you turn off the wireless email reconciliation option in the messages application on your BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device,
opened, deleted, and sent email messages do not reconcile between your device and your email account.
Note: Depending on the type of email account you add or the way your email account is set up, wireless email
reconciliation might not be available.
If you have an email account that uses Microsoft Outlook Web Access 5.5, email messages that you send from your device
are not copied to the sent items folder in your email account.
Depending on your wireless service provider, wireless email reconciliation for the read and unread items, sent items, and
deleted items folders on your device might not be available for Microsoft email accounts set up to use POP. Wireless email
reconciliation is available for Microsoft accounts that use the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol.

Troubleshooting
I can't add an email address
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, you might not be able to add email addresses or set up a BlackBerry
email address for your BlackBerry device.
The BlackBerry Internet Service supports the most common types of email accounts and access options. However, there
may be some situations that can prevent you from setting up your email account with the BlackBerry Internet Service.
Try performing the following actions:
•
Verify that you have provided the correct information for your email account.
•
Verify if your email service provider only allows you to access your email account using a browser on a computer, which
might prevent you from adding your email address.
•
Verify if your email service provider requires you to subscribe to a premium email account to set up your email account
with the BlackBerry Internet Service.
•
Verify if your email service provider requires you to turn on client access (for example, POP) to set up your email
account with the BlackBerry Internet Service.
For more information, contact your email service provider.
I do not know the user name for my Microsoft Outlook
Web Access account
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
When you add an existing Microsoft Outlook Web Access email address to your BlackBerry device, your user name might
take one of the following formats:

organization's network.
•
network domain name and login ID: If you work for an organization that uses more than one network domain, the user
name might use the format domain\username. For example, if the email address is justinjones@example.com and the
domain is domain 1, then the network domain name and login ID is domain1\justinjones.
I can't open email messages on my device
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.

BlackBerry email address basics
About the BlackBerry email address
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
On BlackBerry 7.1 and earlier devices you can set up a BlackBerry email address that you can use to send and receive
email messages on your BlackBerry device. You must use your device to access the email messages that are sent to and
from your BlackBerry email address. You cannot read these email messages using a computer.
You might want to set up a BlackBerry email address in the following situations:
•
You do not have an existing email address that you want to access using your device.
•
You added existing email addresses to the your device, but you want an additional email address.
You can specify a user name for your BlackBerry email address when you set it up. The user name is the part of the email
address before the at sign (@), for example, justinjones is the user name in justinjones@blackberry.com. If the user name
that you specify is not available, the BlackBerry Internet Service provides you with alternate user names. You can select
one of the alternate user names or type your own user name. To change your user name, you must delete your BlackBerry
email address and set up a new one.
Note: You can only have one BlackBerry email address at a time.

About setting up email message forwarding
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
If you upgrade to a BlackBerry 10 device from a BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device, you must set a forwarding rule to continue
receiving email from your BlackBerry email address.
Depending on your email service provider, you might be able to specify options to forward incoming email messages from
another email account to your BlackBerry email address. You might encounter one of the following situations:
•
Your email service provider might allow you to set up email message forwarding.
•
Your email service provider might set up email message forwarding for you, if you request the service.
•
Your email service provider might not allow you to forward email messages to other email addresses.
For more information about setting up or stopping email message forwarding, see the online help in your email account or
contact your email service provider.
If you use an email application on your computer (such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, or Apple Mail) to
access another email address and your computer is always turned on and has a constant connection to the Internet, you
might be able to set up your email application to forward incoming email messages to your BlackBerry email address. For
example, to set up email message forwarding in Microsoft Outlook, you can create a forwarding rule for email messages.
For more information, see the online help in your email application or contact your administrator.

your email account from POP to the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol.
The Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol adds support for near real-time delivery of email messages and reconciliation of
opened and unopened email messages from your BlackBerry device to your email account. If you have BlackBerry 6 or
later installed on your device, the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol also adds support for the wireless synchronization of
contacts from your Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol enabled account.These features are not supported by POP.
If you switch to Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol, you will not be able to perform some actions on the email messages
that were on your device prior to switching from POP, including replying to and forwarding email messages and viewing

sent the email message, how you were addressed, and what level of importance the sender assigned to the email message.
The BlackBerry Internet Service applies email filters to an incoming email message in the order that the email filters
appear. If none of the email filters that you create apply to an incoming email message, the BlackBerry Internet Service
applies a default email filter to the email message. You can specify whether you want this default email filter to forward all
email messages to your device.
You cannot create or change email filters from the browser on your device. To create or change email filters, you must use
the email setup application on your device or log in to the BlackBerry Internet Service website using a browser on your
computer.
Note: If you have added more than one email address to the BlackBerry Internet Service, email filters that you create for
one email address are not applied to another email address.

About wireless email reconciliation
Note: Depending on your messaging service plan, this feature might not be supported.
If you add an email address to your BlackBerry device, email messages that you open or delete on your device might be
marked automatically as opened and deleted in your email account. Deleted email messages might reconcile with the
deleted items folder in your email account. Email messages that you send from your device might also reconcile with the
sent items folder in your email account. For example, if you have a Microsoft Outlook Web Access email account or an
IMAP email account, email messages that you send from your device are copied to the sent items folder in your email
account. Likewise, email messages that you delete are copied to the deleted items folder.
Depending on the email address, email messages that you open from your email account inbox (for example, by accessing
your email account using a browser on a computer) might be marked open on your device. Email messages that you delete
from your email account inbox might be deleted from your device.
If you turn off the wireless email reconciliation option in the messages application on your BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device,
opened, deleted, and sent email messages do not reconcile between your device and your email account.
Note: Depending on the type of email account you add or the way your email account is set up, wireless email
reconciliation might not be available.
If you have an email account that uses Microsoft Outlook Web Access 5.5, email messages that you send from your device
are not copied to the sent items folder in your email account.
Depending on your wireless service provider, wireless email reconciliation for the read and unread items, sent items, and
deleted items folders on your device might not be available for Microsoft email accounts set up to use POP. Wireless email
reconciliation is available for Microsoft accounts that use the Microsoft Mobile Services Protocol.

About switching devices
Depending on your wireless service provider, you might not be able to switch devices.
If you switch BlackBerry devices, the next time that you open the email setup application or access the BlackBerry Internet
Service website using a browser on your device, the BlackBerry Internet Service detects your new device and prompts you
to type the password for each of your email addresses. After you type your password, you can start receiving email
messages on your new device.
If you switch to a device that has BlackBerry 7 installed on it, the device prompts you to type your BlackBerry ID to set up
your device. After you type your BlackBerry ID, you can start receiving email messages on your new device.
If you want to use a BlackBerry email address, you can only switch to a BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device.
If you upgrade to a BlackBerry 10 device from a BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device, you must set a forwarding rule to continue
receiving email from your BlackBerry email address.

BlackBerry email
address
A BlackBerry email address is an email address that you can create to send and receive
messages on your BlackBerry device.
BlackBerry ID
Subscribers can create a BlackBerry ID to log in to, or automatically access, any BlackBerry
product that supports BlackBerry ID. A BlackBerry ID consists of a single email address and a
password. Subscribers can use any email address for their BlackBerry ID; subscribers do not
have to use an email address that they have added to their BlackBerry device.
A BlackBerry ID is designed to provide subscribers convenient access to multiple BlackBerry
products including the BlackBerry Internet Service, BlackBerry Protect, and the BlackBerry App
World storefront.
BlackBerry Internet
Service
The BlackBerry Internet Service is designed to provide subscribers with automatic delivery of
email messages, mobile access to email message attachments and pictures, and access to
Internet content.
Subscribers can add email addresses for existing supported email accounts to the BlackBerry

these email accounts and deliver them to subscribers' BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry
