    Newbie - Seperating Text Messages and Emails

    Advertisement



    Okay, I'm new here so I don't know if this is a stupid question or not, but I HATE the fact that my email messages appear in my "Messages" folder in addition to their own folders on the main screen. If I receive several emails a day from two different accounts, it makes it very difficult for me to find text messages that only appear in my "Messages" folder.

    I want emails in one account, and text messages in another. Is there a way to do this so that I can have a text message only folder?

    Make sense?

    Hello Mrpher and Welcome to the Stacks. Unfortunately all emails, text messages and MMS's go into the "Messages" folder. There is no way to change that. While the "messages" folder is a catch all folder, you should also have a seperate folder for your email address that will keep just your emails.

    If you get the zen theme you can have an SMS/MMS and a Message folder for you email separately. It's heaven

    ok here's how u do it. go to ur messages/options/general options. go to the last option which is "sms and email inboxes". select 'separate'.and save. soon u'll find a new icon on ur main menu 'sms and mms". that will have only ur sms's and mms's. if u dont get that icon, u might have to do a battery pull out.
    i am on os 1.66, dont know if its possible on the earlier versions

    It is only available on that new version.

    I just hide the icons on the home screen for all the individual accounts and only use Messages. Then using the shortcuts you can filter what you are looking for if you wished to.

    ALT+S = SMS
    ALT+M = MMS
    ALT+V = Voice mail
    ALT+P = Phone log
    ALT+I = Incoming (everything incoming calls, emails etc)
    ALT+L = Compose new email

    To filter the email accounts you can hit Menu / Search / Service= (which one you want). Then you can save that search to a shortcut key (example: search all blackberry.net emails save as shortcut ALT+B, and all Gmail as ALT+G)

    I know it is not as easy but it is a good work-around until RIM gives us all that separation of folders like the Italy OS has.

    Zen's probably the best approach if you just want a separate icon for SMS.
