Hi, I have a BB 8800 and cannot setup my private e-mail. I believe it is because my BB was equipped with an option to connect with my former companies Enterprise E-Mail Server. Is there any way that I can set up my BB 8800 to connect to my proivate e-mail account instead? Do I have to change the Operating System on my BB? How do I do that? ......I need HELP!!!
Many thanks to all who take the time to help me. Stefan (from Germany)

The first step is to make sure your former company has removed all IT policies off the device that would prevent you from
setting up your personal email.
Then compete the following:
Changing from BES to BIS :
Setup BIS service:
Let me know if your need additional information

I have same problem. I followed your instructions and I managed to do the first one, i.e. changing from BES to BIS, but had no success for the second one, i.e. Setting up BIS. This is because using the smartphone there is no option (as yet) to click "E-mail Settings" while doing setup from computer found some complication. My service provider (Fido) was not in the list so I used At&T, as it was the original provider (Cingular). I managed to create accounts but nothing happened in my device (mobile). How would I proceed?

OK - I followed the instructions but I did not have CMINE nor CICAL entries under service books on my 8800 smartphone.
Therefore I could not delete these. Meanwhile I deleted the entire Blackberry Desktop Software from my PC and downloaded the latetst and greatest Blackberry Desktop V4.6 from the Blackberry website. Unfortunately now I get a new different error message in that this new desktop installation cannot find the RIM 950, RIM 957, RIM 850 or RIM 857 .msi installation poackages. I don't know which one of these I really need for my 8800 nor where I can find these. My 8800 device itself says it's onWireless Handheld (EDGE) V 188.8.131.52.3 plattform but I still cannoit configure my e-mails on the desktop software....still need help
