    How do I turn off e-mail notifications?

    Advertisement



    So here's whats going on: I send an e-mail (from my phone OR my computer, it doesn't matter) and I get an annoying little copy of the mail in my message folder on my pearl. Obviously I know I sent the e-mail, so I have no interest in reading it, and I find this very annoying. I know there must be a way to turn this off. Can anyone please fill me in?

    im guessing you are using gmail?
    there is a filter you can set to not forward mail from yourself

    there's actually a thread on this somewhere...so you aren't the only one annoyed

    Here do this...

    Go into your carrier account. Then where ever you set-up your email for your blackberry.

    Go to the Gmail account. Then set up a filter with your gmail address and check the box not to forward to your device. All done. No more emailing you self your own emails

    Here's the problem: Will this stop all mail that I send to myself on gmail from coming through? Because I frequently email it to myself on my laptop so I can go on my desktop to print it..

    Yea that will block it.

    Just use another email account to send it to your gmail account.

    Re: How do I turn off e-mail notifications?

    For now I guess I can live with using another email adress to email things, but how do I create this filter? I want to see the original ones, but not the copies in my pearl when i send from either my phone or computer, or my inbox when they are sent from my phone.

    Sorry you can try it with the filter set and not set. Then see if it works. If not then you will have to deal with getting the emails.

    Why this happens is because Gmail doesn't use the traditional file folder system. It sticks everything in one place and uses labels and tags. So your sent and received emails are all in the same place hence sending yourself emails.

    Sorry if another account is not an option we can't help.

    Use this thread to get to your BIS account. #13 about resending service books.
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...on_issues.html
    That should get you to where you need to be.

    Then select your Gmail account make a FILTER

    From youraddress@gmail.com
    check the box not to forward to device.
    Save it

    To answer your other question. When ever you compose a email from either your PC or BB it will be in the sent mail tag.

    Good luck

    BIS is a personal data plan... Vs BES which is a corprate thing (tied to work)

    What's you're carrier?

    mines at&t... So I can go to the at&t website and login into my bis account... From there I can view what emails forward to my bb and change some settings as well...
