    Is there a way to check your BlackBerry account emails online in the event you have no cell service on your BB ?

    I don't believe that is possible. I've not seen a reference to a webmail client anywhere.

    You could do that method, or just alway use another account instead of the BB address. Just a thought.

    There is no way to use a PC to access the BIS server mailbox <user@provider.blackberry.net> - it doesn't have a server for POP3 or IMAP, or a webmail interface.

    I work around this constraint by not publishing the front line mailboxes - not to anyone. All my mail goes to <me@mydomain.com> which automatically forwards again to my BB mailbox and leaves a copy in my published mailbox.

    I like this scheme because it means I can delete mail from my BB to release storage if necessary, and still have a copy back on my server. The secondary benefit is that the primary BB mailbox is unpublished and less likely to be found by spammers so I don't get all the garbage. My domain addresses are protected by spamassassin and filters under my control, but it is very difficult (impossible?) to get a cellular provider to change filters or change a mailbox name if it gets direct spam.

    In fact reading this I go one step further. The real working chain is:

    Published: mailbox1@mydomain.com. This retains a copy and auto-forwards to
    Unpublished: mailbox2@mydomain.com

    mailbox2 is on an IMAP server which is automatically picked up by the BIS service. Mail is usually on my BB within a few minutes.

    I don't even use the mailbox provided on the BIS server, although it is there if I need it.
