    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 username@verizon.blackberry.net

    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 tried setting up without password, but it keeps asking for one. It looks like I need a different e-mail program, such as Outlook, actually on my Storm to do this.:angryfire:

    Sorry Pork I am little confused by your question. Are you trying set up an additional IMAP account or your trying to get email from IMAP forward to your .mil account? Can you explain a little better to help you with this.

    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.

    Do you the settings for you .mil account. I mean is it on BIS account that you can access through your PC. If so the process is quite easy. Let us know.
