Can I install outlook.com email on Blackberry 8520?

Hello, I have a Blackberry 8520.  My MSN email will shortly be taken over by outlook.com, together with the email of 1000s of other people.  I know more up-to-date phones can install email for outlook.com, but what about installing the new outlook.com email details on my Blackberry 8520?  I need to be notified of emails as they arrive, not have to go into the outlook.com browser every time.  Please help, thanks

Re: Can I install outlook.com email on Blackberry 8520?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Outlook.com can already be accesses as EAS and I believe even POP or IMAP. From what I understand, they are not changing your email address at all, so it is entirely possible that you may not need to change anything on your actual device. But, if you do, they they should provide you the details necessary to configure it. I would actually expect that, once they make the change, they will have their servers continue to provide the necessary settings directly to the email configuration wizard, and you won't have to do anything special beyond perhaps removing and re-integrating the account (an only then if new settings are indeed required).

Good luck!
