Setting up rules...
 
I apologize if this has already been covered, but I could not find it anywhere within the forums. I have been using a BB for over 5 years and am currently using the Nextel 7520, running 4.0 OS. I have been searching for a while to try to find anyting that will allow me to set up incoming rules (like Outlook) for my 3 emails accounts I have on my BB. I have my corporate (BES), a Yahoo and a Comcast account. Does anyone have any suggestions or software that would allow this??

Corporate
- Message

Yahoo
- Message

Comcast
- Message


Thanks! Frustrated in Florida!!

Message Rules
 
I have used two products. Notifire allows certain actions to be taken when a message is received. It is based on a contact name (or you can set up a custom contact - an address that is NOT in your contacts). The choices of what to do when a message is received is essentially how you want to be notified (popup message, different tunes, etc.)

The other product (and the one I am currently using) is Message Alerts. This is very much like setting up rules in Outlook as you can specify certain condtions such as from, to, priority, subject contents, body of message contents, and so forth. You also have more control over what actions you want to take. In addition to seelcting different tunes based on the rules, you can delete a message, forward it, auto-reply to it, and so forth. These rules apply to e-mail and SMS messages. It also has a spam "rule" built into it. If you get a spam message you can click on "Spam Rule" in the menu and automatically add the sender's address to a list. Future messages from this sender will be deleted. Statistics are maintained for each rule you generate which is a nice way of justifiying the cost (which I think was in the $15 to $20 range).

I would vote for Message Alerts. I purchased 9and still have) Notifire before Message Alerts was available. Both can be obtained through Handango. Hope this helps...

Hi Jim:
Thanks for the reply. I am currently using a demo of Notifier and it is not too bad, but I am going to try Message Alerts as it appears to be more towards what I am looking for.

Appreciate the help!!

Take care,
John
