I have only dealt with a Blackjack and the AT&T Tilt cell phones, but I
imagine the Blackberry is as easy to set up as these two. You just have to
follow the directions on the Blackberry.
Choose a webhost which has a decent user guide on setting up an email
client, giving you all the setting that need to be used. Here is Godaddy's
It gives you the basic configuration and then has specific instruction pages
for Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.

Make sure you pick a webhost that allows outgoing SMTP mail. Some hosts make
you use your own ISP outgoing mail settings, which means if you are on a
laptop, you can't send email unless you are at home.

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.

My friend/client wants to have email from her new domain available on 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?

<tip type="progressive enhancement with javascript"> When working on
progressively enhancing a web page, once you know that the browser can
handle your scripting it often comes in handy to change all the hrefs of
your soon-to-be ajaxy anchors from "#" to "javascript:void(0);" to avoid all
that jumping around built in to the browser.
If you use jQuery, you can do it like this:
$(document).ready( function() {
