Default Turning off email

Please Login to Remove!

Good day. Is there a way to disable the email feature but still have the phone on to receive calls, just no emails?

Need more info to be able to answer your question, starting with (1) whether you have BES/Exchange based service or BIS/Web Client based service; and (2) whether you want to disable email permanently or be able to disable/enable at will. I recall some recent threads on this site dealing at least in general with your question. You might want to search those to gane some background to help yourself understand the issues.

Thank you for you reply. I have email pushed from our office server but do not know if it is BES or BIF. I do know we spent somewhere around $5K for enterprise software so it may be of the BES variety. What I am trying to do is still be able to use my phone but not be innundated with after hour or weekend email traffic from an over-bearing, micro-managing president. I know I can use the on/off function in setup, but I believe that applies to the unit as a whole, and I am not able to differentiate between the telephone portion and the email portion.

I don't think you can have emails sent to your device during work hours but not afterhours and on weekends. All email is qued up in your account and delivered to your device when service is restored (just as, for example, when you turn off your device and then turn it back on).

You may be able to accomplish your objective by setting up filters on your device or on Outlook (if you use it), that will either block emails from your boss and other heavy emails from coming to your device, or move them to a special folder, and then review them from your computer at a later time. A device filter, however, would block all such emails and so you wouldn't get any of your boss' emails -- I don't think there's a way on the device to filter by time. On Outlook, however, I believe you can filter emails received at certain hours and have them moved to a folder that is not synched with your device.

Go to Profiles and set one of the profiles for no notification of emails received. This will not stop the emails but will keep you from getting notified everytime one comes in. This way, you can review incoming mail at your pleasure.

Yes, if all you care about is quieting the device so you don't notice the emails coming in, then just adjust your profile settings. Good suggestion.
