Blackberry Playbook - Unable to open email via Bridge

Can some help with an issue on the Playbook and a Balckberry Curve 8520


I have installed and configured Blackberry Bridge and all seems to be working fine except the email. The email is setup using a Bes express server. Emails are working fine on the device. However when I try to view the emails on the playbook I get the error message "No email addresses have been setup on your Blackbbery Smartphone" yet it works fine on the handset.


Also I can see in the top left corner of the playbook I have 200 unread emails and can see the preview list so it can sort of see them.


Calendar and Contacts etc are working fine.


What am I doing wrong?

Could it be that your company has some sort of policy that doesn't allow a playbook to be used to check the email? Could you try and ask someone from your IT department?
