    BB Messenger Default Email Address

    Advertisement



    For some reason, my BB Messenger account is defaulting to my Gmail account instead of my BBMail account. Therefore, when I send a friend request, the confirmation email is sent to my gmail instead of bbmail, making it impossible to add friends or approve friends. How do I get my BBMessenger to default to my BBMail account? Using PINs is not an option... Thanks for any helpful info in advance.

    Mine does the same thing. I think I was able to change it by changing my default email.if you have someones PIN it should use it though...

    lets say i add a contact to my list via email. i then get an email from them in my gmail account to authorize. however, the email is utterly useless in my gmail account because the confirmation link is designed for my blackberry mail account. basically i have no way of authorizing users because the confirmation email is sent to my gmail account.

    If you are sending by email in compose scroll up to send using and click, you should get a drop down menu with your options. Do you actually have more than one email account on your BB?

    Yes...BBMail and Gmail.. Are you only supposed to have one? Is this why my BB Desktop Redirector will not work?
