Default how do I filter large attachments

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

New BB user here - I've been searching the forum for an answer but no luck, so here is my first post!

FYI I have a BB 7780 running V3.7.1.41 with AT&T/Cingular as my provider. I set up 2 POP accounts for email. I'm not using Redirector or BES. My mailbox has a 10 MB size limit.

Problem is, my 10 MB always get filled by a few emails with large attachments. Is there any way to configure my BB to not get email with attachments larger than a certain size?

The Web Client filters only let you filter on text in From/To/Subject etc, not message size.

Thanks!

I didn't think they automatically download attachments (at least the ones I've setup never had).

Its the Web Client "mailbox" that's complaining. I hit this limit even if I don't try to get at the attachments on my BB.

Ahh gotcha. I don't think so. Maybe you could do the filtering at your host email boxes?

you can setup up the auto aging rule through the manager folders botton to set the number of days that it will delete the email in the inbox and deleted items. Thus clearing up your space.

Thanks for the suggestions authentication_key and bfrye. I looked at the auto aging and it might help a little. I think I can set it down to 5 days or so. It won't solve the problem if a few messages come in with 3-5 MB attachments.

One of the POP accounts is on our Exchange server, so I could reject emails over a certain size. However, I want to keep getting those big messages in Outlook, just not on my BB. So whole-sale rejection of big messages at the server level is out of the question.

I am trying to avoid keeping a system running 24/7 with Redirector, but would Redirector solve this problem for me? Or does Redirector still use the Web Clients 10 MB of space?

Thanks again

FYI

you can set it as low as 1 day.


hope that helps!




you should also get you carrier to add more space to your BWC

T-mobile gives more space for free!

not sure about AT&T/Cingular

Redirector only works for redirecting your outlook mail from your desktop to your bb, thus when that happens it will still choke up your 10mb space. Auto-aging and filters is still the best current option.

Call your carrier and ask them to increase the size of your BlackBerry Web Client...
