    Question Need a filter for BES emails

    Advertisement



    My setup: BES with one corporate account and BIS with one Gmail account.

    My Gmail email show up in the Messages folder with my BES email. From what I understand, there is really only one Messages folder, and the Gmail icon is a filter to show only that mail.

    Is there a way to make another email icon to show me only the BES messages?

    Thanks for the help.

    Sorry, but no.

    However, you can make shortcuts to filter the messages in the Messages list.

    From the Messages screen, click the wheel / press the Menu key (Pearl) --> Search --> click again / Menu --> Recall --> this will bring you to a list of default shortcuts which are used from the main Messages screen by pressing ALT + a letter.

    You can edit the defaults or make new filters.

    For myself, I have a filter under G for gmail, and a filter under B for BES.

    Then you can hide that (silly) superfluous email icon for gmail from your homescreen. When you get 8 email accounts on a BlackBerry, those icons are a bit too much!

    Actually, that may be possible. This is tricky and could get you in trouble, but Im sure you will "cya" before you do this.

    When I was on BES with the last company I worked for I deleted my BES service books, so the emails never made it to my phone, and I set up the same BES email through my BIS, making it a BIS email, and therefore created an icon on my BB.

    This may interfere with OTA sync and other things, but if all you care about is emails then my little trick is for you.

    Let us know if you need more help.
