    Pop email accounts on Curve

    Advertisement



    I have a friend who needs me to help him set up email on his new Curve.

    He has a pop3 account, so basically, has

    An account name
    A Password
    Pop settings, i.e mail.domain.com
    smtp settings, i.e smtp.domain.com
    and his email account uses ESMTP for authentication, basically same username and password above.

    Someone was telling me The way a Blackberry works (on BIS Blackberry Internet Service - what he has is that you set up forwarding from your existing email addresses to hisname@o2email.co.uk This immediately pops up on your Blackberry. When you respond to emails it looks like you are responding from your actual email.

    I'm very confused, any ideas anyone?

    Re: Pop email accounts on Curve

    That's right! Bottom line is, for HIS main email address that HE uses you set a rule/function on that account to forward a COPY of incoming emails to the BlackBerry (BIS) email address: hisname@02email.co.uk

    The properties of that email (BIS) will have the TRUE details of his REAL email address. So, when he sends an email it will look like it's coming from hisname@hisrealemailaddress.com

    Make sense, clear as mud?

    I thought you had to set the pop mail account as an added account in BIS for the pop mail address to be used when sent from the blackberry!

    How is the BIS aware of the account name to send from if it is forwarded from the PoP account

    Hope this helps.

    Exactly, why not just add the email to the BIS account?

    Yep... this is how my 2 POP email accts are set up on the BB... easy set up to add the acct too! Just enter your email addy and password in the "Set up Personal Email" and BB does the rest...

    A breeze compared to WM5 - - -
