    setting the device to not recieving emails in a period of time

    Advertisement



    Hi all.
    i have a Q:
    some of our users want to be able to decide if they will be receiving email or not.
    they want to turn the email Push off when they want to and turn it on when they want to.
    but here is the catch....
    if they set the device to not receiving mails, the mails recieved in the time where the device was not sat to recieve, will not be sent to them when they turn the email receiving on again......the messages are not held as pending like if they turn the device off.

    They can’t turn the device off because they want to receive calls on it......
    Does anyone have an idea how to set this up? Preferably on the device side....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ IKnow the newer 88xx and 83xx have a new Manage Networks option that I think would solve your problem. They now have the ability to shut off just data service instead of all transmitions.

    I've never tried it, but that's my understanding.

    If they are on older devices I can only suggest creating a profile that doesn't notify them of new messages. And I believe one of the email options is to NOT have the number of unread messages post on the home screen.

    I hope your answer is somewhere here.

    Good luck.

    It is possible to just turn off data with the Pearl. My BB is turned off in the other room right now (I know... GASP) so I'm not sure where. I think it's under Settings -> Network Settings but I'm not 100% sure.

    Hope this helps!
    As always, just my opinion...
