Hey guys,

I currently use the Gmail app because I get a lot of junk mail on there and I rather not have my blackberry filled with gmail messages. Therefore, I just use my school email address since all those emails are important.

I do send out a lot of emails from my phone and I would like to use my gmail address to do that instead of my school address.

So......is there any way I can hook up my gmail to the push account, but only send emails from it? I don't want to be receiving emails from my gmail account. I use the gmail app for that since it keeps it more "clean" since gmail groups emails together like threaded SMS

Thanks guys

Hello,

add the gmail account thru your BIS site, then on filters section, where it said "When no filter apply" select do not forward to device.

So you won't get any e-mail, but you can use it to send it.

Thank you!

Do I have to set the filter to

Email Account: xxxxxxxx@<hidden>

Change this filter by selecting new criteria.

Filter name:
Apply filter when: "new mail arrives"

Or can I leave that blank and have it when "no filters apply"? Thanks

You don't need any filter, so just change to Do not forward.

Every account has a default filter. In this case, just set the default to Do Not Forward.
