    Is there a way to pop emails instead of them being automatically pushed to me?
    Is this possible? Or do I need to get a 3rd party email client to do this?
    This is for both a (myusername)@att.blackberry.net and personal email account.

    What do you mean POP'd? You can set up POP e-mail addresses, you just need the server information. The push e-mail system is a little more efficient I think. Is there a specific reason you don't want e-mails automatically pushed to you?

    Where is the pop setup? Wondering if att.blackberry.net can be used in this manner?

    When I travel or am on the road, the BB push is great. However, when I'm sitting in front of my computer and working emails, I need to also go delete the duplicates on my BB.

    You are talking about IMAP, not POP, and the answer is no.

    Aside from that, the mailbox for your xxx.blackberry.net email address IS your BlackBerry. It is a special email address created for your Berry, and there is no way to make it not push.

    That pretty much answers my question. What I wanted was to see if I can use the xxx.blackberry.net email as pop instead of push.
    Doesn't appear that is possible.
