Default Some email filters are working, some not?

Please Login to Remove!

First of all let me say thanks for the help in getting me up and rolling with my new 8100. I appreciate the help I have received.

Query:

Email received by my home ISP is forwarded to my BB email address. I have set various Cingular filters to allow email from a small number of senders to reach my BB and all others are filtered out.

Some of those filters work (allowing the emails thru to my BB), and some do not. I have no idea why. Some come thru immediately, and others take quiet a while, which I attribute to quirks in Cingular's system.

Is there any secret about using Cingular's filters? Can you use only a partial name like "Smith", or must you use "GSmith@ABC.com"?

I know I can have the email "pushed", but that happens at only 15 minute intervals rather than (usually) immediately.

thanks

I had a rare moment of clarity. I have the filters set to examine the "From" line of incoming emails to determine which ones to forward to my BB. So I was having the filter look for certain email addresses.

But some "from" lines show the sender's name rather than email address, so maybe thats what I need to have the filter look for.

cheers
