I access my emails from work thru a VPN. I purchased a Curve 8520 cause I understood I could receive my emails on my smartphone. I set up my personal emails, which are working fine. But, I can't figure out how to set up my VPN settings for an email account on the 8520. Co-workers who have other smartphones(not Berries) and connect. Any help will really be appreciated.

Do you know if your company has a BES? If so then you can contact your IT department and they maybe able to create an account for you on the BES and give you an activation password to activate the device. Activating it in this manner will allow you to receive your email, contacts, calendar, tasks wirelessly on the device.
If your company doesn't have a BES but uses webmail you can try setting up to receive your Inbox messages to your device. Have a look at this KB article.

Thanks for your response!
My company does not have BES. What I need to do, is to connect to the companys VPN and then configure my mailbox. Co-workers with IPhones have done this. I have the VPNs IP, domain name, user and password. The articles I have found, explain how to configure email, but NOT first accessing the VPN.Does anyone know how do I can do this with my 8520?

Not sure about that. All the info I've read about VPNs say that it needs a BES to work
There may be third party VPN apps that you can try. Pocket VPN is one that I can recall.
