I have searched forums and haven't found an answer to my inquiry so I am posting to see if I can get some help.
I have had a BB for years, but have never disabled email (Or a need to before). As much as I love my job, I am going on vacation and I want to 'disconnected' from my work email while I am gone. What I would like to do is...
- Disable wireless email from by work account
- Still receive SMS and PIN messages
I know there is a Disable Wireless Synchronization in the Messages Options, but was wondering if that would also disable SMS/ PIN messages.
There are a number of apps including Opera, Google Maps, etc. I want while I am travelling so leaving the BB at home is not an option.
Thoughts and suggestions welcome.
I have an 8300 connected to a BES.
I'm trying to do the same thing actually. I have BIS so it's not really possible for me to contact IT and tell them to disable message delivery. I also don't have the "Send Email to Handheld (Yes/No)" option under Email Settings. I guess, the crude way of doing this would be to delete my e-mail account from the BIS page but I prefer not to do this.
I would just create a special profile that rings for phone/sms/PIN, but no alerts for email messages. Then just ignore the messages (including the ones that say '(!)URGENT: Office on fire!'). But I'm just a calloused a$$ and can ignore those messages with a clean conscience (not everyone can).
Also, when you are in your Messages app, use the default search ALT+S to only display SMS messages, which masks the other types (not sure how to do the same for PIN messages, I never get any of those.) .
