Default How do I forward all my email (BES) through Gmail

Please Login to Remove!

I want to use gmail's filtering to stop all the junk email I get everyday. I'm using an 8830 and I don't know how to set up forwarding of all email on the handheld. My phone is on a corporate BES.

If there were a way to only receive the BES email on my blackberry that is from someone in my address book it would be fine. The junk spam overload is coming through my work email address which is the BES one. Is there a way to make it work like that?

I don't quite understand what you want to do. You have GMail and a BES account? Why do you want to forward all email on the handheld?

I get a ton of unsolicited advertising on my work email that I have sent to a junk email filter in outlook, but since I'm on the BES for my blackberry the emails still end up showing up on my phone. I've been reading that people forward their email to gmail to use gmail's junk filtering and have the email then forwarded to their phone.

You can't setup automatic forwarding of all email from the BB. You have to set it up in Outlook. Your company may restrict that feature. You need to filter out the junk mail better on your Exchange server/Outlook.

Go to Gmail settings, where it says add account, you'll need your exchange server name, exchange.*******.com and you'll need your password if there is one, that's if you use exchange. I can't speak for other corporate email programs.

I had a similar problem and used Gmail to solve it, but it wasn't as refined as those above. I forwarded everything to Gmail, used their spam blocker and only accessed the Gmail while I was on the road. Occasionally I would go into my BES account and do a Delete Prior on the BES account. It worked fine for a while.

If you have OS 4.5 and up (not sure about 4.2 though maybe can be done too) you can make firewall setting in device to receive just email from contacts. Check in your device under Option>Security>Firewall. Not huge fan of forwarding back and fourth due to spam. It might be good time to consider buying some enterprise antispam for the whole company.

Your on a BES and you only want work email..

Are getting alot of spam to your work email address?
I think you should speak to your I.T. to get some spam control or something maybe get a contract going with a 3rd party company like message labs... or have I.T. reconfigure your Exchange/Domino rules.

When you receive an email you don't want, hit the BB menu key and select either filter sender or filter subject, name the new filter and click OK. This will stop the BES from forwarding that message based on the criteria (sender/subject) you defined.
