  1. 1

    Boot up the Blackberry Desktop Software on a computer that is connected to the Internet. You may have to set up a virtual private network (VPN) connection in order for this to successfully connect with the Blackberry Enterprise Server. Once this is complete, launch the Blackberry Desktop Software. If you are using a PC, this should appear at the under the "Start" menu; if you're on a Mac, you should be able to find it using the "Finder" feature. Make sure that the software is installed completely so that your BlackBerry is synced with your computer.

  2. 2

    Open the screen called "Messages" on your BlackBerry. Choose "Options" from the menu, and then choose "Email Reconciliation."

  3. 3

    Click the button "Wireless Reconcile" in order to synchronise the e-mails on your BlackBerry with those on your computer. Make sure that the "On" button is selected to ensure that wireless reconciliation stays active.

  4. 4

    Go to the synchronisation settings option and enable synchronisation in two directions. This will ensure that any changes made to e-mails on your Blackberry will be reflected within the email applications that you use and vice versa.

  5. 5

    Return to the main menu of your BlackBerry and choose the icon that lets you configure certain e-mail providers with your device. Find your provider and follow the particular steps in order to integrate your device with your provider's e-mail services. If your provider allows you to save draft e-mails, you should now be able to switch back and forth between your BlackBerry and your computer mid-draft.
