Default Turn Off Email

Please Login to Remove!

Hello I am new to Blackberry, I have the 8830. My company has the email set up on enterprise. I have also added my aol account. Works great. Is there a way to turn off either or both email servers when I just don't want to recieve emails and if I do turn it off is there a way to get them on demand. Sometimes I just don't want to be bothered.

Yes, you can turn off data services at Options > Network. You will be able to use your phone but not email, internet, etc.
You could also change the Profile to Phone.Only. Either way, when you revert, you will still have all the emails you missed come to the phone.

There should be a "Phone Only" profile. You might want to give that a try.

Profiles do not affect email delivery or anything aside from the alerts. If you look at them you can see that they're nothing but alert settings. However, the Phone Only profile will prevent you from getting notifications of new email, which is really the recommended solution as the email on the BB isn't designed to be "turned off".

However, there are several ways to disable email delivery. Some effectively pause email, meaning that it will queue until you reverse the change. Others will actually prevent the email from being delivered at all. Which solution are you looking for?
