    isn't it supported at your carrier.blackberry.com site?

    Login at the pages, register if not, setup email there.

    I've logged onto Blackberry services but it can't setup my MSN address. Every other e mail addresses works perfect

    Ok here is where u problem lies usual email servers use POP to send and recieve... HOTMAIL/MSN is not one of those servers... and since RIM uses POP it can't talk directly to the HOTMAIL/MSN servers it needs to use a third party way of routing which comes in the form of OUTLOOK the only issues with outlook is that if your HOTMAIL/MSN account is a young account like maybe 4 years or younger you will have to pay for microsoft to route your emails to your outlook folder, but once your HOTMAIL/MSN account is configured to use outlook then you can add the email account to you bb email service and you will be on your way...

    I have msn and don't use outlook and I get my mail on my pearl. I didn't do anything special to get it running though. Its not a free hotmail account though its through Qwest msn which is my ISP.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    True, when you mention it, I remember hotmail only giving pop3 access when service is payed for.

    Another reason to go to gmail

    It all depends on how old you msn account is . Another option if msn won't go directly is a program called getmail it's free . You can find it through google . You just need to run your ( or any computer you put getmail on ) all the time .

    The mad part of it is that ive got Yahoo,Aim,Google accounts. Recently gone into business partnership with a guy that has setup his internet accounts (before i was involved) with MSN. Part of the problem is resolved by the fact that ive got JiveTalk so communication between us is easy, but i want to direct all emails to blackberry.

    I think the easiest way to resolve this is to alter that e mail address of the company LOL but thanks to all

    Getting the "getmail " program would be easier if you leave the compter on all the time . The setup for getmail is alot easier then changing the emails address .
