firstname.lastname@example.org Action required:update password?
I have occasionally gotten email :
Action required: update password!
Sep 9, 2009 7:22 AM
Update the password for email@example.com in the BlackBerry Internet Service! Email messages from firstname.lastname@example.org are not beingdelivered to your BlackBerry device.
To resume receiving email messages from this email address, update the password for email@example.com in the BlackBerry Internet Service:
1. Open you BlackberryInternet Service account by completing one of the following actions:
* Click the email setup application on your device.
* Using a browser on your computer, visit the BlackBerry Internet Service web site.
If I go to email setup on the device it gives me :
Connecting to email settings.... and times out and says: "Your device had a problem connecting to the server." I do Retry....
Then it times out and says: "your device encountered a problem with this application's server".
I have 4 bar and i am in 1XEV mode.
Last time I got this email I was able to just go into email settings and enter the password (which had not changed by the way) and it started working again.
This time it will not let me get into the application to sett the password.
Are the servers down or something?
I am on Verizon.
Also wierd thing. this says Verizon is on .148 os :http://forums.crackberry.com/f132/al...-betas-123176/ Yet a few weeks ago I was in Destop Manager adn it just started loading and completed and am running on v188.8.131.52(platform 184.108.40.206)
But everything has been working fine on this release for several weeks now.
I just occasionally 1 every 2 weeks or so get this email about needing to enter my password. Just this time it will not work.
Unable to Connect to Server
I was having the same problem, however was able to solve it by going to the BIS website for my carrier and updating my password. The password rules changed to require a minimum length of 8 characters, with a combination of lower and uppercase, as well as numbers.
If your old password does not fit this format, the password (while correct) will not allow access to the server through the email settings option on your BB.
Once I updated this, and enterd the new password, it worked right away.
Here is the BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) site for Verizon. vzw.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw
Do a google search for "Blackberry internet service ______" with the name of your carrier.
