E-mail Password for Personal Blackberry

Your Blackberry saves the password that is used to connect to your Amherst e-mail. If you have your Blackberry through Amherst, you do not need to change your Amherst e-mail password on your Blackberry, as it will sync automatically whenever your Amherst password changes. If you have a personally-owned Blackberry and use that to acccess your Amherst email, then you will need to change the password on the Blackberry whenever you change your Amherst password. To do this, follow the instructions provided below.

From the e-mail setup application on your Blackberry device:

  1. In the email setup application, on the Email Accounts screen, highlight your Amherst email address.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Click Login Information.
  5. Click Change Password.
  6. Complete the password fields.
  7. Press the Menu key.
  8. Click Save.

IMPORTANT: Check the After Changing Your Password page for other things you may have to do after you set a new password on your Amherst account.
