    Question Message Filters

    Advertisement



    I've seen some random questions as far as message filtering goes. I thought we should put it all together in one thread. My question is as follows:

    I have 2 message icons. One is just the generic message box. The other is my BIS email box. When I receive an email on my BIS account it shows up in both boxes. It also does this with BB messenger conversations. Is there a way to filter my BIS email and BB messenger conversations out of my generic message box? I think this would help alot of people. Especially those who have more than one email account set up on their BB.

    Thanks all.
    Justin

    Unless my friend was sending them wrong. I saw them in both places. That isn't as big as the email though.

    seedyburner, for more information on how the message app works, here is a short explanation, Understanding Multiple Mail App Icons (BIS 2.x).

    Hope this helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Couple of points to make here:

    Pearl Zen theme(s) on 4.2 OS do NOT separate SMS & MMS into a separate list. They only appear in the main Messages app list.

    BlackBerry Messenger conversations have the option to appear in the Messages list.

    And finally, with email and SMS / MMS, there is no way to NOT have all of those messages initially appear in the Messages list. Although, shortcuts for filtered views can be used. The BIS icons are merely shortcuts to filtered Messages view(s) for that specific BIS email account.

    I would recommend hiding the silly BIS icons, and use the Messages icon solely, in conjunction with shortcuts, that way, there is never any perceived confusion.

    Thanks guys. That does help and it is unfortunate that the flexability isn't there yet.
