Use these steps to add SU email to a Blackberry device.

Blackberry Setup Troubleshooting Trick

Depending upon your setup and your service provider, your Blackberry may not give you the ability to edit the information needed to set it up using their instructions. This is because on some setups, it uses your username (without the guills.salisbury.edu) and sets up gulls.salisbury.edu as the email server. Unfortunately, it won't let you edit the username, so trying to switch it using the directions provided above won't work.

Instead, you have to trick your Blackberry into letting you put in the values at setup. To do this, first, delete your gulls.salisbury.edu email address out of your phone if you've previously tried to set it up.

Next, go to your Email settings, choose add a new email account, and put in some gibberish@outlook.com as the email address, and some more gibberish as the password. What you're trying to do is get the Email setup to fail to automatically find your settings. After about three long tries, it returns a red error message stating something like "The email address or password is incorrect, or we need more details. Retype the information or provide additional settings." That's what you want to see. Click "provide additional settings."

Then choose POP/IMAP and click Next.

Now you can replace the gibberish email address and password with your email address and password, put in the email server as found in the above instructions for your phone, and put in your username (full email address @gulls.salisbury.edu) and hit Next. That should get your email address set up in those phones that give you limited access to settings.
