    The only way I know is to delete all the accounts in BIS when you don't want email and set them up again when you want to get email. I doubt if that is practical however.

    yeah that would suck. Would be nice if there was a way to toggle it on and off easily that way I do not get emails while im sleeping or with my gf.

    You could log into your BIS account and create a new filter, select the "Apply filter when" and change to "From field" then in the "contains field put a "@" then you can toggle between forward and do not forward, as all email addresses contain a @ they wont be forwarded to your bb, hope that helps...LP

    Alex2k5, With the 8100, you can go to Options/Network and turn off the Data Service. THis will shut down the data portion of the blackberry untill you turn it back on. But after you turn it on again, everthing that was waiting to be delivered will be.

    Hope this helps

    You could set up Auto On/Off times for while you're sleeping. You can set seperate weekday and weekend times and then never have to worry about it again.

    But you will still get all the email sent during the off time. I think the OP wants to eliminate getting any email at all while the BB is turned off.

    It sounds to me like he wants to receive all his messages just not when he's sleeping.

    The problem I have is when I send an email a get a copy of the email sent back to me. There is a way to stop that right? In the Options?

    That's a pretty big threadjack.

    Are you looking to not receive mail at all during a certain time period? A lot of the options mentioned above will stop message delivery but the messages wil still queue and your BB will be flooded when you revert.

    If that's not what you want, the best option is to set the default filter to not forward for each account on your carrier's BIS site. The BB is a push email device and it's not really designed to have email delivery turned off and on.

    Maybe I'm thinking too simply.

    Couldn't you just use the "Phone Only" Profile? That will disable notifications for your messages and only ring when your phone is being called. Since it's only a couple of clicks. That's what I do.

    I'll be damned if those spammers are gonna cost me a good night's sleep.

    Come on now folks. I am as big a crackberry adict as anyone. Just because the red light flashes you don't have to look at it. Just because you get an e-mail you don't have to reply.
    Alex2k5 set up a profile so the light does not come on or a sound is made for emails. Check the e-mail when you want to. Just my $0.015

    I would follow the advice of Rcbjr and just turn your data service off.

    Use the existing Phone Only profile, or create a new one. That's what I do at night.
