Set Up Email on a Blackberry

You can access your mail from the native BlackBerry® mail application by setting it up as an IMAP client for your Gmail account. Using IMAP is nice in that doing something on the BlackBerry, such as reading or deleting a message, is also reflected in your Gmail interface on the web (and vice versa).

Note that with IMAP, incoming email can take up to 15 minutes to be delivered to the BlackBerry, Gmail labels don't appear on the BlackBerry®, and conversation threads appear as individual messages.

What each user should do:

  1. Make sure you've enabled IMAP in your Gmail account.
  2. On your BlackBerry®, navigate to your home screen.
  3. Select the icon that lets you set up email (this can be called Setup, Setup Wizard, Email Setup, BlackBerry® Set-up, E-mail settings, or Personal Email Set-up).
  4. Follow the setup instructions provided on your device to create a new email account.
  5. Be sure to enter the following:
    • Mail Server: imap.gmail.com
    • Username: [your full Gmail address (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)]
    • Password: [your password]
    • IMAP Port: 993
  6. Allow the system to add your account, but do not enter your Google Apps password into the utility boxes (this causes the system to default to POP3 instead of IMAP).
  7. Select Next.
  8. Select Next again (bypassing the Additional Information Required section).
  9. Select your account type, and then select Next. You may encounter a "We were unable to configure..." error. If so, select I will provide the settings to continue.
  10. Select the option that mentions IMAP/POP.
  11. Select I will provide the settings..., and then select Next.
  12. Select Set up existing email account...
  13. Enter your Gmail account information here, with imap.gmail.com as your mail server.
  14. Select Next.
  15. Select Save.

When setup is successful, you receive a confirmation message, and a new mailbox icon (labeled with your Gmail address) appears on your BlackBerry®'s home screen.
