How to Check Your BlackBerry Email on a Desktop Computer

By Joshua Laud

If you receive a lot of emails on your BlackBerry email address, then you may find it easier to check them on your computer rather than on your BlackBerry. BlackBerry email is provided by your phone carrier through the BlackBerry Internet Service. The BlackBerry Internet Service does not let you check email 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 email provider's website.
