Default Turn Off Email

Newbie questions.

Is there a way I can turn off receiving email on my bb when I am at work then turn on when not?

I go through web exchange.

Also, my mail is marked as read as soon as its sent to my bb. I want it to be unread at my work.

Thanks.

Great idea. Except for the fact that he wont be able to receive any other type of data or voice communication.


My suggestion is to create a profile that will have email notifications set to silent. You will still receive emails, but you wont hear a vibrate or ring.



Good Luck

i think he was asking more along the lines of NOT getting email at all while at work because when he checks it on his work computer its marked read??? not along the lines of not recieving notifacation. am i right?

Thanks all but I do need the phone calls. I only want to receive emails on bb when I can't check at work.

I'm starting to think this can't be done.

The Blackberry really isn't designed to have email turned off and on. However here are a couple of options as turning it off or turning wireless off not only means that you can't receive or place calls but you'll get all that email once turned back on. Email will also queue up if you use the data off option (available on some versions of the handheld OS).

1. If you're on BES and have Desktop Manager there is an option to disable mail delivery when attached to the USB cable. However, if you're on a BES I'd recommend setting up reconciliation to make sure Outlook and your handheld are updating each other with message deletions which is a better solution.

2. In Messages, you can go to Options->Email Filters and set "If no filters apply, send email to handheld" to No. However, you also need to disable delivery on all filters that you have set up. Additionally, you need to remember to toggle all these settings back when you do want to receive mail.

Really, for what you want a pull email device is a better option than a push device like the Blackberry. There's not much sense in trying to make a square peg fit a round hole when round pegs are readily available.
