BIS and Google 2-step verification

Hi everybody, I need some help pls!!
I receive my emails via BIS from my gmail account. Yesterday I activated the 2-step authentication for my google account which requires me to insert a specific code after username and password. Some Applications, e.g. picasa, gtalk, mobile maps and BIS interface are not able to do this 2-step authentication why you can generate an application specific password which works only for one application. The problem is when I want to set up my gmail accoun in the BIS (on my BB as well as on the webpage) neither the application specific password nor the normal password work. Does anybody has experience with this, or uses google 2-step authentication with BIS??? Please help!!!!

Resolved the question 1 minute later.   Just follow example in Google video.  Setup the application specific password and then enter that password on the BIS website.  Worked perfectly.
