How to Set Up Email on a Blackberry device

You can set up email on a BlackBerry 9® device. You have a choice to make if you have a BlackBerry 9 or before device.  You can choose to set up a POP3 or IMAP4 account.  With the POP3 or IMAP4 account, you can only synchronize email on your device. If your device is set up for BlackBerry® Enterprise Cloud Services, you can synchronize your email, calendar, and contacts. To set it up, you'll need to be provisioned first.  Please call the Help Desk at 614-287-5050 to get provisioned for Blackberry sync.

If you have a Blackberry 10 device, you may set up your phone using ActiveSync and the same settings as the other phones.  ActiveSync will allow you to get email, contacts, and calendar on Blackberry 10 phones/tablets.  The server address is outlook.office365.com if needed.

  1. From the BlackBerry® home screen, select BlackBerry Setup > Set up Internet E-mail > Add An Email Account.
