Default Setting filter for BIS for facebook emails results in weird things

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys...so I have my gmail set up to push...but only for any email that has the "from" field from facebook...i rather not have any other gmail pushed to me since I can check it with my google mail app

however, when I do get a facebook email, it comes up as a facebook notification instead of it being in actual email format, like any other push email would be.

When I open it up...it brings me directly to the facebook app ...instead of actually opening the email sent from facebook

has anyone else noticed this?

I removed the filter and I stopped getting the alerts....

I find it weird that RIM's BIS service can actually know your filter is facebook and automatically have your facebook program open up the message instead of the actual email app

can anyone explain this please? Thanks

If you have facebook app installed. then the facebook app "intercepts" emails from facebook addresses and shows it in the facebook app as a notification.

This is how its supposed to work....

Yup. It has nothing to do with the BIS filter.
