Arrow Empower BES MailBox: Separate your Work emails from main Messages.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

Now that InstaSpell is out, we have something new for you!

Empower BES MailBox allows you to view your Work Emails separately from all other Emails.

OTA: http://www.getempower.com/bes/ebm.php
PC-DM: http://www.getempower.com/bes/Empower_BES_MailBox.zip

No more getting your Work emails cluttered in the plethora of BIS, PIN, SMS and Browser messages.

Let us know your thoughts about it.

Thanks!
Ani.

Is this a trial version that will expire or is this the full version? I like it.

Interesting. Will give it a try.

EDIT: I installed it and it doesn't appear to do anything. I have a new envelope icon, but when I click on it nothing happens. I'm using a Sprint 8830.

Thanks. Its a Trial that will force-expire in 10 days. By that time I guess we will have better versions that will work for a greater audience. (As we can see its not working for some environments right now. We will need to work on it.)

This is (almost) PERFECT for me! All we need is that new icon that indicates new messages. Currently, the messages icon is the same for new mail, and no new mail.

Hi All,

We have an update. Pls upgrade to v0.92. Download links remain same for OTA & PC-DM.

The ability to change the icon for new BES messages will be added within a day or two.

Thanks!
Ani.

Works (BB 8300)! Love it.

Is it possible to add a stand-alone icon for SMS/MMS messages only in a similar way?

There is actually a built-in filter in the BlackBerry OS for SMS messages. Launch the Messages application. From the menu, select View Folder followed by SMS Inbox or SMS Outbox.

Btw, Some nice tidbits for us with regard to Empower BES MailBox. (Full credits to Tom. )

Nice finds Tom !

This is pretty nice. Couple of questions though to make sure I'm not missing something.

Is it possible to have a folder/icon that contains just everything else? All messages EXCEPT the BES messages?

What I would like in the end is to have one place to see only BES messages, and another place to see only my BIS messages.

The RIM OS currently provides an separate icon on the BlackBerry home screen for EACH of your BIS e-mail accounts, but there is currently no way to look at ALL of the BIS accounts in a single view without the BES messages, too.
