Squirrel Mail on blackberry and HTML messages

Hi, This is not my strongest area so please be patient Embarrassed
I get all my Email into Outlook 2003 on my home PC and have it set to leave messages on the server for 20 days so I can still see them through webmail when I'm not at home. This works OK when I use my laptop away from home but the messages all display as plain text making html messages a bit difficult to read. Is there a way to get these to display as HTML.It doesn't work OK when I try and access https://webmail.plus.net on my blackberry browser. The Blackberry is a work device and occassional personal internet use is allowed but associating my home email account isn't.
I get HTTP Error 400 bad request.
So is there a way to access squirrel mail / webmail on a blackberry browser?
Any help gratefully received even if its don't bother its not possible"
Thanks

I don't think it is possible TBH. People have reported issues with it in the past.
You could try using Mail2Web which I think renders HTML emails. You need to login as follows though:
Username: <username>@<server_address>
Password: <mailbox_password>
So if your mailbox username is 'dave', you'd log in using dave@mail.plus.net and the password for that mailbox.
Failing that, there's probably a way to set up your Blackberry so that it retrieves your email directly using either POP3 or IMAP. I've not had a great deal of experience with Blackberrys though so somebody else would probably be better positioned to help you with this...

Is the Blackberry provisioned for Blackberry Enterprise Service, known as BES, and /or BIS,
Blackberry Internet Service.
Mine is a work one and  I have both services provisioned, so Outlook mail & diary sync via the BES,
& via Phone providers website you can set up for POP3 e mails to come to your Blackberry.
You can choose to then delete just on Blackberry or on your ISP too; with Outlook e mails, you can't delete from
the Desktop ; do that when you next log on with your laptop.
If you're on Vodafone see my post:

Other phone companies, have equivalent sites;
