Setup an Exchange ActiveSync Account for Email on your BlackBerry Device

Email
 What is Exchange ActiveSync?

Exchange is a messaging product used for managing and synchronizing e-mail as well as contacts and calendars across multiple devices such as your mobile phone or tablet and your home and office computers. It uses a direct push technology that allows you to make a change at home which you'll then see at your office. 

NOTE: We offer this as an optional add-on to your hosted email account and we do charge an additional nominal fee for this service.
