    How is your e-mail set up?

    Advertisement



    I'm a new BB user - and am curious - how should I set up and use my GMail?

    Should I use POP/SMTP? Should I set up a BB address - and just forward important mail to this BB address? (but then people would see a reply from my BB address not regular GMail...)

    What should I do?
    How should I set it up?

    Thank you all...

    Welcome to the stacks InGearX!...it would be POP.
    You should create a bb address, but not necessary to use it with gmail as gmail email are delivered quite fast so your reply email would still be your gmail address.
    Shouldn't be too much trouble setting it up...on BIS, just enter your gmail address, username (your email address again) and password and thats it!..let s know if this helps

    Or you can install the gmail client for BB, gmail.com/app from your phone which works very well and gives you full access to your gmail archive.

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    I setup a BB (BIS) addy and forward my gmail to that. You can set your Reply To address to your gmail so that when people reply, they do so to your gmail and not your BIS account. It works fine for me. I also set my display name so that it shows my name and then the reply to of my gmail account.
