Google Apps Blackberry

Note: While setup instructions are provided below, Gmail IMAP access is not officially supported for BlackBerry devices at this time.
To set up the BlackBerry's email client with Google Apps email (IMAP), just follow these steps:
On your BlackBerry device, navigate to your home screen
Select the icon that lets you set up email (this can be called Setup, Setup Wizard, Email Setup, BlackBerry Set-up, E-mail settings, or Personal Email Set-up)
Follow the setup instructions provided on your device to create a new e-mail account
Be sure to enter the following:
Mail Server: imap.gmail.com
Username: [your full Google Apps email address]
Password: [your Google Apps password]
IMAP Port: 993
Allow the system to add your account, but do not enter your Google Apps password into the utility boxes (this causes the system to default to POP3 instead of IMAP)
Select Next
Select Next again (bypassing the 'Additional Information Required' section)
Select your account type, then select Next
You may encounter a 'We were unable to configure...' error. Select I will provide the settings to continue
Select the option that mentions 'IMAP/POP'
Select I will provide the settings..., then select Next
Select Set up existing email account...
Enter your Google Apps account information here, with 'imap.gmail.com' as your mail server
Select Next
Select Save
If setup is successful, you should receive a confirmation message and a new mailbox icon should appear on your device's home screen, labeled with your Google Apps email address.
