How to Check Your BlackBerry Email on a Desktop Computer

If you receive a lot of e-mails on your BlackBerry e-mail address, then you may find it easier to check them on your computer rather than on your BlackBerry. BlackBerry e-mail is provided by your phone carrier through the BlackBerry Internet Service. The BlackBerry Internet Service does not let you check e-mail online but it does allow you to forward all e-mails to another address. Once you forward them to a separate address you can read them on your desktop computer. You will need the email connection settings for this address. These will be provided on your e-mail provider's website.
