    Re: Blackberry Web Client (BWC) - Setup Guide

    Hi

    Just took the plunge and upgraded to Bell BIS 2.0. One new icon appeared on my 7130e......XXXXX@bell.balckberry.net. Going through the help section on adding email accounts it talks about an "Email Accounts" icon on the BB but no such icon is present but I can see it on the BIS website. Are there any other icons missing?

    Thanks

    Is this on your BIS account or on your BB?

    Have you set up your BIS account to retrieve email from any other email accounts such as your Yahoo or Gmail accounts? If not, you will only have the single Message Apps Icon. If you have set up BIS to retrieve from another account you will get an additional Icon for each account.

    Hope this helps.
