BlackBerry Hub Plus: How to set up Fastmail?

 

BlackBerry Passport has been my go-getter device. It is unparalleled. In terms of productivity and security. However, it took time for BlackBerry Android to catch up and I am happy to have been able to tune it to my needs.

Hub and BlackBerry keyboard remain central to my needs. Hub has my personal (using Fastmail IMAP) and Official Exchange account. Fastmail allows calendar and contacts integration as well.
