BlackBerry users dealing with e-mail outage

TORONTO - December 17, 2009

The company, Research In Motion Ltd., said Thursday it has technicians working on the problem.

The company says users are still able to make phone calls, browse the Internet and send and receive text messages.

The last time RIM's BlackBerry service had a major outage was in February 2008, when an upgrade to the wireless system apparently caused a three-hour service disruption that affected millions of people.
