  7. Enter your full email address, server address, and domain exactly as it is in the Setting up ActiveSync window. Then enter your mailbox password.

  8. Confirm which personal information you would like to sync from your Exchange mailbox to your Blackberry, then select Done.

  10. When this is complete, you will see your list of accounts as well as the new account that was setup.

  11. To check for new messages swipe, up from the bottom of the screen then to the right, and then select your mail account to view your inbox.
