    No unless you are using BIS 1.8 you can only check it from the BB, most likely you are not using that version of BIS especially if you are a new user.

    BIS=Blackberry Internet Service.

    For T-Mobile you can login here:
    http://www.t-mobile.com/bis/

    Or you can login to your "My Tmobile" here"
    https://my.t-mobile.com/login/MyTmobileLogin.aspx

    And click on "Setup Blackberry Internet Email" and it will take you to your BIS account. If you dont see your emails in there and options to compose etc... you cant check them on the PC.

    If you have logged in to you BIS and dont see them then your not on BIS 1.8 which means you can not check them on the PC

    xpsych07x, Is you Pearl your first Blackberry device? If so you are using BIS 2.x, as BIS the transition to automatically assigning BIS 2.x to new BB accounts dates to before the release of the Pearl.

    Hope this helps

    You cannot do what you're asking on T-Mobile BIS -- the @tmo.blackberry.net email address is managed from your handset only, there's no way to use your PC to work with the email. In a nutshell, this email account shouldn't really be used as a primary email; you have no control over it (filtering, forwarding, spam, etc.) so I would advise never giving it out to anyone. I use mine to only send myself URLs and such to downloads.

    Set up a free GMail account, then in the T-Mobile BIS email setup screen attach that to your stuff (you just enter the email and password, it does the rest of the work). This way you can do email on the PC, the blackberry or any phone running the GMail applet -- you'll get forwarding, filtering, and better anti-spam controls. A free Yahoo! account works perfectly fine as well, if you don't like GMail.

    A free Hotmail account does *not* work, so don't bother.

    You can add filters to any address setup with your BB by logging into your BIS account on a PC. Forward By adding a CC or just forwarding from the handheld although not conventional like most email services.

    Well agreed, but these are not the filters you are looking for.. *waves hand jedi style*

    The filters in the T-Mobile BIS are good for choosing whether or not to push email to your handset - that's it. You have no real filtering, which involves pushing mail to folders (or labels), sending autoreplies, or any other myriad of options. Those filters are good for what they do, but they're not the same as real email account filters.

    The OP is specifically asking how to get a PC-like (sic) experience from their @tmo.blackberry.net account, and it's not possible.
