Re: Adding another email address

Good afternoon and welcome to BB Forums.

 

I am no expert and I am sure others will advise you better than myself, however I have a BB9900 with Orange and have Googlemail set up on the same.

My recollection of setting up Google Mail was as follows, from set up select E-mail Accounts, then Add another email address, Google does appear as its own category which prevents the requirement to, create a new address and requirement to know the full settings. On completing your email address and password the phone will do the rest. If I recall correctly it does fail a couple of times then registers. Hope this helps?

Re: Adding another email address

Hi Ellisam70

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

I assume you have BlackBerry Data Plan / BIS on your account, as it is required to enjoy those push email services on our BlackBerry Devices.

 

The method which londonpride advice does allow us to add any email address on our device but if you are unable to add you email then you can try the one which has helped many , for that from your BlackBerry browser browse to www.blackberry.com/integrate to add / edit  your email address on your device.

 

Try it and let us know.
