  4. On the next page, enter the email server, and make sure that 'Leave messages on mail server' is ticked. Then click on Submit.
  5. The next page will show that your email account has been successfully setup to work with your Blackberry Handheld. From now on a copy of everything that you receive in your inbox will be sent to the Blackberry.

Troubleshooting Blackberry

I have set up my Blackberry but have not received any emails yet.

  • Please note that it can take a while after the initial set up before your emails start to arrive at the Blackberry. Please be patient, as this may take up to an hour or two and is in the control of Sprint. Once the first email has arrived on your Blackberry the rest should come through fairly quickly.
  • If the client is not able to connect to the Internet Log into the website ( and under Settings -> Service Books, click "Send Service Books."
  • If the device is still not connecting then contact the RAMtech (1-7625) or Becky Tyler in Telecomm (1-5619) for further troubleshooting.
