How to Setup Blackberry E-mail

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki

To setup e-mail for a Lunarpages account on a Blackberry is really simple.

Navigate to "BlackBerry Setup" then open "Personal Email setup". Please note, the Business Blackberry E-mail Server is not supported by Lunarpages. Once you open "Personal E-mail Setup" you will enter in the e-mail address, user name (that would be the e-mail address again since this is how our servers are setup) password, then the mail server.

There are no port configurations, so if you run across those kinds of errors then you will need to contact your service as they may need to install further setup files.
