    hey all

    today I had a friend of mine ask me if he can stop receiving emails on his bb? he has a work bb and also uses as a fone but he is going on vacation and wanted to know if he can turn off the emails he will be receiving from work.

    i have never seen such an option but thought to ask you guys.

    thanks

    Is he on BES? The BES admin can turn it off, otherwise he could create a filter in the BIS.

    I'm pretty sure then that the BES admin can just stop the e-mails from going to his device.

    Yes there is. On OS versions 4.2 and newer, and a few versions of OS 4.1, go to Options>Network (might be "Mobile Network" on newer handhelds) and there will be an option at the top of the screen to turn data services on/off.

    It can be controlled from the BES and the device as well. If you do what Mark Stone says you disable data connectivity completely. If you go in to messages on the device and then go to options in the menu. You can then go in to email settings, choose the desktop email and then there is an option to "Send Mail To Device" and you can set this to no. You can also set this from Desktop Manager if he has it installed on his pc at work.
