E-mail set-up and Blackberry

I've just bought a Blackberry Storm and cannot get it to accept my Plusnet e-mail details (login name and password) so that any e-mails I receive are forwarded to my phone, anyone got any ideas, I also want to be able to reply to any e-mails too.
Cheers

You'll need to set it up using IMAP access to your mail box, I believe (that's certainly how I have my Bold set up).
server:  imap.plus.net
username:  <mailbox username>
password: <mailbox password>

Thanks Barry, the thing is, as my e-mail account is pop3 will this make a difference to my incoming mail?

yeah - it will often show as empty Tongue
I would convert your desktop to using IMAP too.  The best IMAP client by far is Thunderbird, and it's very easy to set up with Plusnet.  It's identical to POP3 setup, excent the type is IMAP and the server is IMAP.PLUS.NET
