Hi all-

I'm not a blackberry user, and I work solely on the backend of web
applications, but I've been asked to set up email and a website for a
friend, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help me out.

her blackberry, her laptop, and her desktop pc. I suggested using only
the webmail to access it, but she wants to use an email client, either
Outlook or Thunderbird. She also wants the email to go to her
blackberry if she's out of the office.

So my question is, how would one go about setting this up, and what
should I look for in a host?
