    How do I get about configuring a Microsoft Exchange email account on my Blackberry?
    I tried to add an e-mail account by logging into my BIS web interface, but I couldn't find any option to add a Microsoft Exchange account. As I can also access my account through OWA (Outlook Web Access), I tried entering my OWA settings in the "Set Up An Existing Work Email Account" wizard, but I keep getting this error: "Cannot connect to email server or invalid server name."
    For the time being, I've configured the account as a POP3 account. But it seems to work slower that way. I have the same account configured on my laptop, and I get mails on my Blackberry device around 15-30 mins after receiving them on the laptop.

    Any help or pointers will be appreciated...

    You cannot connect to an exchange server directly, that is what BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) is for. Not sure about connecting through OWA access.

    Your only other option would be to use astrasync. I use it and works really well, however it does coat 49.00 a year.
