I set up my blackberry to work with my outlook.com email account. However, when I read an email on the Internet, it does not sync with my blackberry so that the email is marked as read on the blackberry. Is there a way to fix this?

Your email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org"?
Is your outlook.com email account on a POP3 or IMAP server?

Thank you for responding. Yes - my email address is email@example.com.
Here is what I found concerning your question about POP/IMAP:
Outlook.com accounts use Exchange ActiveSync as their default protocol. You can access messages and sync contacts using any modern web browser or a client that supports Exchange ActiveSync, such as Outlook 2013, earlier versions of Outlook with the Hotmail Connector add-in, and mobile apps on iOS, Windows Phone, and newer Android devices.
According to Microsoft’s documentation, IMAP is not supported.
Use of POP/SMTP is discouraged for @outlook.com addresses, but it will work if you set the servers to pop3.live.com and smtp.live.com, respectively. Note that you must sign in to the SMTP server to send mail.
