For Devices older than the BB10;

There are two ways to access FirstClass mail using a Blackberry device – the most common is to use the Blackberry (BIS) server to exchange mail, which is outlined below. The second is to download the FirstClass Mobile Client for BlackBerry.

You should also make sure your Blackberry Software is up to date.

To start with, you need to get a Blackberry ID, which is used to automatically sign you into your email accounts.

Once you have your Blackberry ID and Password, RIM provides separate login sites (Blackberry Internet Servers) through the ISPs… you need to correctly configure your Bell, Rogers, or Telus Blackberry accounts to have your GoodMedia based mail pulled by this site, to then be delivered successfully to your handheld device.

Once you have logged in, Add your GoodMedia account:

Then add your GoodMedia account settings:
Note; Use mail02.goodmedia.net as the Email server: (below).

 

When complete, click on the Advanced Settings, make sure SSL is enabled, and Save;
