Default How to set up email filters for this situation?

Please Login to Remove!

So now that I have my BB I need some help... So please share your knowledge with me!

So my parents and myself both share one Telkomsa mailbox with two aliases which look something like this (not my real email btw):

So how do I set up the filter on myBB to only download emails sent to [email address]?

On my laptop its fine because I can set outlook to "only download if 'to' contains the word Justin". I dont have that option using my BB... The problem is the common word in our email addresses. So if I say do not download emails with the word 'parents', I wont get my email either.

So what do I do?

I don't see the problem. Filter on the exact address you do not want going to the BlackBerry, and select do not forward or whatever the exact setting wording.
