View Full Version : Keeping private & BES messages separate

02-01-2007, 01:49 PM
My 8703 is provided by my employer and is configured for my work e-mail messages to be sent to both my desktop (Outlook) and to my 8703 via a BES... works great but here's my question.

I also have a blackberry.net e-mail account set up and have my home e-mail forwarded to it. Only my forwarded e-mail messages show up when I click the BB.net account icon (that's good) but both my work and home e-mails show up when I click the general "Messages" icon (that's bad). How can I keep the forwarded messages from home out of my general "messages" account?

You can't.

Well, that pretty much anwers that. Not the answer I wanted to hear but based on all that I've tried, sound right to me.
Thanks anyway.

I wish it were different, but it isn't. The Zen theme separates out SMS messages into their own icon, which I find helpful, but for other themes their lumped into that main message icon as well. So opening that icon will provide you with every single message on your BB.

I separate mine out with a search. either do a "search" on search (pun not intended!) or click on the following links...

With my custom ALT+Z search, I can display only messages from my corporate BES server. It works well enough.

don't like it? Let these guys know how you feel... bbsuggestions@<hidden>
