Setup IMAP e-mail account?
The US Army has put a smackdown on e-mail aggregators, so no more AKO e-mail for military guys via the Blackberry aggregator. My question is...does anyone know how to use IMAP settings for e-mail? IMAP is allowed by the Army, but I don't know of any program for blackberry that can use IMAP.

i'm sorry I don't know anything about IMAP but I have a suggestion for you;
if your on a bis you can go to your carriers bis site and set up a direct to your berry email.
if you google say vzw + bis and set up an account from there you can create an email
something like firstname.lastname@example.org
just a thought
Hey pork, I ran into this, but not coming up with anything else that may help... Gmail IMAP is here, but BlackBerry users may want to stick with POP | The Mobile Gadgeteer | ZDNet.com Once I find something you will be sure to know first :fing02:
I can't forward e-mail to a non .mil account...so that one is out

I am trying to access my .mil account on my storm. The only "approved" method involves IMAP. It appears I need an IMAP mail client installed on my Storm to do this.
Pork you do not need a special IMAP mail client. Your .mil account should already be IMAP ready. For example, Gmail is imap.gmail.com because that is their incoming server name.

Yes I have the settings and it uses ssl.
