retrieve old *.blackberry.net emails on BB10

with my old BB phone i was heavily using my *.blackberry.net email address as my main email, which looking back was a big mistake.  With my new BB Z10 i have now lost those years of important emails since there doesn't seem to be any way to have access to them, other than carrying around a 2nd phone with all those emails loaded on.

 

seeing as BIS is now dead on BB10, and there is no way to retrieve those emails through a webmail type login, is there any other options?

Re: retrieve old *.blackberry.net emails on BB10

Thanks for the quick reply.  But that wasn't what i was after.  I've already set up the forwarding so i catch any future emails to that old address.

 

But my question was, how can i still have access to my many years worth of OLD emails on that blackberry.net email address.   Whenever i used to update devices and do the Device switch wizard, it would simply copy over all my old emails from that account.  But with the new BB10, support for that email address is now dead and i fear all those emails are dead with it.

Re: retrieve old *.blackberry.net emails on BB10

Not that I know of... You've never had an archive of the mails except on the device itself. I've been begging people to wean off those email accounts for years, they're worthless for longevity and if you ever changed carriers you'd lose them all anyway.

 

IF you have a previous backup of your old device using Desktop manager in an IPD or BBB file format:

 

There are a couple of options for extracting and viewing data from a the backup files.

1. The IPD Parse macro is designed to read a Blackberry IPD file and create reports in MSWord or MSExcel. It is free, and you can find out more here: https://sites.google.com/site/ipdparse/home
For .bbb backup files, use this macro to extract seven "primary" IPD files (Address Book, Calendar, SMS Messages, Tasks, Memos, PIN Messages and Phone Call Logs)
IPD bbb Extract macro https://sites.google.com/site/ipdbbbextract
These IPD files can subsequently be used as inputs to the other macro, IPD Parse, to produce reports.

2. Another options is MagicBerry from MenaStep... which extract from a backup IPD or BBB file, split IPD files, etc. http://menastep.com/pages/magicberry.php

3. Another IPD and BBB file utility is BlackBerry Backup Extractor, and is available for PC and Mac, and can be found here: http://www.blackberryconverter.com/ There is a free and paid version.
