About the BlackBerry email address
You can set up a BlackBerry email address that you can use to send and receive email messages on your BlackBerry smartphone. You must use your smartphone to access the email messages that are sent to and from your BlackBerry email address. You cannot read these email messages using a computer.
You might want to set up a BlackBerry email address in the following situations:
- You do not have an existing email address that you want to access using your smartphone.
- You added existing email addresses to the your smartphone, but you want an additional email address.
You can specify a user name for your BlackBerry email address when you set it up. The user name is the part of the email address before the at sign (@), for example, justinjones is the user name in email@example.com. If the user name that you specify is not available, the BlackBerry Internet Service provides you with alternate user names. You can select one of the alternate user names or type your own user name. To change your user name, you must delete your BlackBerry email address and set up a new one.
