How To Set Up Your POP/IMAP E-mail Account on a BlackBerry

You have an email account from your company or any ISP. Either it is POP3 or IMAP you can setup it on your BlackBerry.

1. Open E-mail Settings on your BlackBerry home screen.


2. Click Create New Account.


3. Click Yes to indicate you Agree to the Terms, then click I Agree.

4. On the next screen, enter your username and password for the account you plan to use and click Next.


5. On the E-mail Account Setup page, type in the e-mail address you plan to set up, as well as the password for that account, and click Next. At this point, the e-mail setup wizard will state that it is unable to configure the account you entered. Don’t worry; that’s what we’re about to fix.


6. At the current screen, select I will provide the settings to add this e-mail account, and click Next. No need to enter your e-mail address and password again; you’ll only need to if you accidentally misspelled one of them in Step 5.

7. Select the type of account you want to configure. For this purpose, we’re selecting Internet Service Provider E-mail (POP/IMAP). Click Next.


8. Click Provide the Settings on the next screen.


9. Enter in your Username, Password, and E-mail Server settings. If you don’t know what your e-mail server is, contact your ISP and ask for that information. It should be POP.Your_ISP_Name.Com or IMAP.Your_ISP_Name.com. Click Next.


10. The BlackBerry will now display that your account has been set up successfully, and you will have access to your mailbox from the BlackBerry home screen.

English vil b changed to German :)

The SMS and CHAT generation is going to love this....messaging becomes so easy...and fast in all the countries..in a single language...WOW..

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as 'Euro-English' .

In the first year, 's' will replace the soft 'c'. This will sertainly make the sivil servants jump with joy.

The hard 'c' will be dropped in favour of 'k'. This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome 'ph' will be replaced with 'f'. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new s pelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent 'e' in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing 'th' with 'z' and 'w' with 'v'.

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary 'o' kan be dropd from vords kontaining 'ou' and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a real sensibl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza.. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas. If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.

Today, 7.5m Web Pages and 8m Images Will Be Deleted from the Internet Permanently

geocities pages on google

geocities pictures on google images

Yahoo! acquired Geocities in January 1999 and, after operating the service for more than 10 years, they are finally shutting it down today.

Geocities hosts around 7+ million public web pages and 8+ million images according to Google. This number can be much higher because some of the Geocities sites could be private and therefore Google won’t know have details about such pages.

Starting today, Yahoo! will remove each and every Geocities hosted page from the Internet and that means introducing a few hundred million broken links, if not more, on the Internet. Let’s see how how quickly search engines manage to remove this “404″ clutter from their results.
