Default Webmessenger Message Alerts users - your good ideas?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a feeling I'm not even scratching the surface of the Webmessenger Message Alerts functionality.

I thought it would be cool to see how other users are getting the most out of the app. I just upgraded to the 8800 and have renewed interest in tweaking it and getting more use out of it. :D

(Sorry if this is covered somewhere - I did some searching and didn't really find something. If i've missed it - feel free to just point me to the thread. kthxbai.)

Not much usage here but just basic alerts for SMS, Email and slight/minor call screening was what I used it for. Since have uninstalled and attempted to go with other call screening software and let my BIS handle filtering.

I have used the product for over a year trying previously to get BB Alerts to implement level 1 messaging triggers into their product. I use almost all features for phone, SMS, and email filters. I have also configured it to filter for key messages to trigger alarms that now serves as my pager. I love the repeating alarm feature. I am now in control when and how the alerts ocurr which is must for those of us who carried a pager. I also use the software to filter a "no alarm" for messages that meet previous conditional filters. It is very easy to move the filters so that you have them in the right order to meet your alarm needs.

However, I am concerned about future maintenance of the product given the previous owners sold the product to a new company that has not reached out to their user base. I would love to wholesale buy the product from the new owner to market it to users on this board and on the net.

I use it to filter e-mail based on rules that are set depending on time of day. I don't want to woken up with BS e-mail, but there are 3 accounts that I NEED to be able to take always., I am on call for several different agencies and must get those calls. Message Alerts allows be to to that and get rid of my pager.

Works for me. I am concerned with future growth of the product and tech support. I don't like having to get a new activation number if I switch devices which I will do someday. Other than that it works great.

Jeff, if you need different alerts from different senders in your Address Book, try this:
