This post is intended for those BlackBerry users who have recently set up emails on their BlackBerry device with BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) integration. Expert BlackBerry users (if reading this post) can jump to comments at the end and leave feedback. 🙂

When you change the login password of your existing email account set up on BlackBerry device, then you will have to update the same on BIS to continue receiving emails on BlackBerry device. For Windows Live (Hotmail, MSN) emails you have to re-validate email a/c at every 90 days even if you do not change your Windows Live password. Many times it also invalidate your BIS email for unknown reasons to you as users but it does happen when your integrated email servers are down for certain period of time. There are many more reasons..but let me save your time instead and let’s look at how to re-validate BIS integrated email a/c.
