Your BIS account is the login page accessed from the Cingular site that sets up the email accounts you have pushing to your phone.
As for the Gmail filter thread, I was with JSaunders, I thought it was still a sticky at the top of the 8100 forum. Its been removed in the last week, I guess. Probably because its addressed in the blackberryfaq.com section of the site. The sticky for that site is over in the General Discussion Forum.
It will walk you through setting up the filter for your Gmail account.
Filters are useful for a lot of things. I have one email account that I use to receive "new post" emails for different forums I belong to. Some of them I don't want to receive on my phone, because of the volume. I prefer having a filter that doesn't send them to my phone, rather than signing up for a "daily digest" option on the forum. Also useful for friends that like to send you stuff that you prefer not to read when you're at work.
