The best way to set up your BlackBerry smartphone for email is called automatic login. This method allows you to set up email directly from your BlackBerry smartphone, without needing to remember a username or password for your BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) account.

Automatic login creates your BIS account and takes you straight to the email set up page.

If you ever need to change your email settings, simply go to Email Settings and you will have immediate access to your BIS account and options.

To set up automatic login, complete the following steps on your BlackBerry smartphone:
