    as in creating the email accounts? yeah, i've had the accounts for years....is there something i need to be doing...this would be awesome if i had this on my phone as sometimes my daughter emails me from the UK and i would love to get her emails whilst at work....might help with destressing at work a bit lol

    hotmail wont work unless you upgrade your account to their premium which is thirty dollars a year, or have had an account with them for a loooooong time before those changes.

    because i had my hotmail account after these changes, i just made a gmail account to be compatiable with my bb and got my hotmail emails forwarded to the gmail.

    Hotmail account will only work if it was created before 2000, or if you pay for it...
    Now, Yahoo on your BlackBerry (BIS) should work, regardless if you pay for it or not...

    It's always better to use the 'Setup Internet Email' icon from the BlackBerry.
