Default Can i temporarily suspend BES email, but keep receiving SMS & phone calls?

Please Login to Remove!


I'm a total n00b and in fact I don't even have a Blackberry yet!! I'm thinking of getting the 8700g because my company runs BES and fully supports push email and contacts, etc, and I like the look of this model.

Before I buy it, I wanted to check if it is possible for me to selectively suspend receiving emails from the BES server from time to time, but still allow phone calls and, more importantly, SMS's to come through? For example, on weekends i'd like to shut off work email, but still allow my friends to call me and/or SMS me. Then on Monday morning I want to allow the emails to come through again.

If this is possible, can I do it from the 8700g handset and not have to get the BES administrator to make a change on that end?

Sorry if this has been asked before.
