Definitely check out Blackberry Internet Service. Your provider (AT&T?
Sprint? Verizon?) should provide it. Basically, you'll go to their web
site, and you can set up your Blackberry in several ways:

(1) you can set it to pull from up to 10 different email accounts via
POP or IMAP. It polls about once a minute, and then pushes to the
(2) you can set up an email for the device. Something like,
"my_blackberry@sprint.blackberry.com". You can then forward from your
regular email address to avoid the one minute delay from polling, and
set your reply to address to override your "@sprint.blackberry.com"

I hope that explains it. :)
