How to change password on BlackBerry Bold 9900 for gmail account;

Hi Guys

 

Thanks for reading this and hope someone can help me out , Now for the passed few days I have been getting warning messages to change my password on my gmail account .

 

I know how to change the password at the gmail end and the Live Mail on my lap Top but not sure about changing the password at the BB 9900 end .

 

As far as I remember I go to Set Up , Then click on Email Accountants , At this stage I get lost ? perhaps someone can give me a blow to blow account of what I need to do .

 

Thanks again

- Go to Setup

- Choose Email Accounts

- Choose Internet Mail Account 

- Choose the email you are trying to access and you should have the settings in it.

 

 

*If this doesn't work at the moment, please try it later because it seems that we are currently having difficulties with the email servers right now.

Re: How to change password on BlackBerry Bold 9900 for gmail account;

Thanks for the reply Ron yes when I go to Emails setting all I get is " Your device encountered a problem with this applications server "

 

I have also noticed that Google is no longer forwarding mail to the BB so I think maybe there doing maintenance or some thing it was working a few hours ago .

 

So I will wait and see what happens.Tthe BB own mail account works ok for mail in and out but nothing coming in from the Google end .

 

So looks like I will have to wait until Google is up and forwarding mail again .

 

Thanks again

Highlight the Email then choose Edit. Then look for the Login Information and enter the password on the field provided.

Re: How to change password on BlackBerry Bold 9900 for gmail account;

Ok Ron I have clicked Edit and am now in General Options :

Email Address

Email Address Name

 

Your Name

Signature

 

Then Login Information

User name

 

Password

 

(This is Blank ? )

 

Does the new Password go in here I wonder ?

 

Then under that you have show password

 

Then press save after you have changed password ,

 

Am I correct as at the moment its all working fine and what to be sure before I start playing around with the settings

 

Cheers
