Please note that by default we have enabled BlackBerry® Fastmail support in the server. There is no any difference between the versions of Blackberry. You need to contact the blackberry providers regarding the settings.

By default you have to give the mail id and password and mail.domainname or serverIP in the incoming and outgoing mail server.

If you have any issues in it, contact them and get the range of ips to be allowed in the firewall so that we will check here and whitelist the IPs.
