Server Information
POP and IMAP are protocols used by your email client. We recommend to use the IMAP protocol, as this protocol offers you the possibility to synchronize your emails between your PC/Mac and our server, i.e. your emails will not be deleted from our server (unless you delete them), whereas POP3 downloads the emails to your PC/Mac and deletes them from our server.

Setup Email


Please use the following information for setting up the Server and Ports:

Secure settings (encrypted access):  Unsecure settings (no encryption):
Incoming Secure Mail (IMAP with SSL) Server:
secure.swissmail.org; Port 993
Incoming Mail (IMAP)Server:
pop.dombox.com; Port 143
Incoming Secure Mail (POP3 with SSL) Server:
secure.swissmail.org; Port 995
Incoming Mail (POP3)Server:
pop.dombox.com; Port 110

Use secure connection (SSL): select this option only if you have chosen the secure IMAP/POP mail server. Please note that SSL will be used in any case. If no SSL connection can be established no connection at all will be established.


Secure settings (encrypted access):  Unsecure settings (no encryption):
Outgoing Secure Mail (SMTP with SSL) Server:    
secure.swissmail.org; Port 465
Outgoing Mail (SMTP)Server:
smtp.swissmail.org; Port 25

Review your settings and select Next.

Congratulations, you have successfully set up your BlackBerry to handle your e-mail!

BlackBerry® Internet Service (BIS) will automatically check for new email approximately every 15 minutes.

Note:

If you couldn't enter the Ports manually and your account doesn't work, than please proceed as follows:

Once an email account is integrated, the Port is set and cannot be edited. To change it, you must delete and re-create the BIS conduit for that account.

Setup Email


Follow the steps again accordingly to our despriction and when it comes to the step you see above use your valid email address but an invalid password (enter the same invalid password in both "Password" and "Confirm password" sections). Doing so will bring you into the advanced integration screens which provides you with the ability to configure the ports.

A screen will show up where you have to enter the following information:

Email Server: secure.swissmail.org
Port Number: 993
Email Address: testaccount@swissmail.org
User Name: testaccount45
Password: ***** (the correct one)
