I got an email tonight from an email address claiming to be from Blackberry telling me to validate my password for the email account. I did as I was told (beginning to think that this was rather foolish) and my Blackberry says that the password is not valid.
How did you validate? If you used the email setup app on the BlackBerry smartphone or your carrier's BIS webpage, then you are ok.
For what it's worth, I had to do it for my yahoo email Saturday morning. First time ever. Same thing as your case, email from BIS, and BIS said password was not correct when I tried to validate. ... Went to Yahoo. Yahoo website said Yahoo believes my Yahoo account may have been compromised and had me reset password. Afterward I validated my Yahoo email in BIS with the new password.

It's my university email account. Not done any editing of any sort to my accounts since I set them up on my blackberry. Unfortunately, the university have been making a lot of changes recently so I've emailed their helpdesk to sort that out. I did use the email setup app on the phone to validate it.
