Default Wireless Email Synchronization - Temporarily Disable

Please Login to Remove!

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.

Thanks,
Ken

Disabling wireless reconciliation (in Messages / Options) will not stop mail from coming to your device. it only stops the reconciliation of moves/deletions and read/unread marks.

To disable email while you're on vacation, you can call your IT department and ask them to temporarily disable message delivery until you return from your trip.

Default Why do you need to turn email off?

If it is just seeing the email that you want to get away from, how about just hiding the mail icon and setting the mail notification to none?

Because then they won't be able to see their PIN messages either.

I have never done it before but it looks like under:

Messages->Options->Email Settings the first option is "Send Email to Handheld (Yes/No)

I htink thi is what you are looking for.

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.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Not just the crude way... it's the only way.

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.) .
