    Question Email notification from 'specific' people...

    Advertisement



    I know we've discussed this before (I thought it was on the forum) and I've searched, high and low...

    Nonetheless, I want to know (again) how can I set my BlackBerry to notify with a different tone, when specific people send me an email?

    I thought I had the link to the 'original' friend, and of course I don't and now can't find the thread either, so...

    First, in the address book, go to the person you want to assign a tone to.
    Click edit and go to the bottom of the page and select the option to assign a custom phone tune, save.
    Then, go to profiles
    At the bottom of the page you will see:
    "Use active profile except for"
    click the boxes for each contact that you want to hear their custom tone.

    I hope that helps.

    I know you can use that for calls, not sure on if it will work for emails, SMS, etc.

    ...not quite; I remember a similiar conversation a while back. I think cp6169 knows how to do this, it's something about creating a profile for that specific contact...

    ps: thanks for the help though...

    Take a look at the WebMaster website (I cannot post links yet) for their program called "Message Alerts for BlackBerry."

    They describe that software as:
    Customizable Alerts and Filters for Email and SMS messages. Turns the BlackBerry™ device into a pager.
    I haven't used that application, but I have used their WebMessenger program. IMHO, it is an excellent messenger program.

    You're welcome, navilyn,

    It certainly looks worth a free fifteen-day trial.

    Creating a different profile for each seperate contact! You are good navilyn, great memory.

    I have been doing this for a while and it works great, I now dont have to pick up the BB if its not an important email.

    Good idea guys, never thought of this. I usually check my BB at every little beep or vibration. I guess I can do this too, so I am not so attatched to my BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ cp6169 doing it that way do you not sometimes get sounds (notification) when the device is set to vibrate only mode?

    I want to set it up like you have it, but I think if am on the vibrate profile I'll get an email from the wife while am in a meeting and all you'll hear is, 'usher dot com'. So how to get around this?

    When you create the exception you will see use active profile. When you click that if you have it on vibe it will not produce any sound! Works great!

    Thumbs up Re: Email notification from 'specific' people...

    ...by Jove! I think I've got it! Thanks; testing it now...

    Ah, one more thing, just say I want a particular tone for any email from a particular domain, i.e. my work domain, do you think that's possible? I've not seen a way to do this, but one can hope, no? LOL
