Default Keeping Text messages, Work e-mails, and Personal E-mails separate

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if this is a redundant question but I just got my blackberry today and I would really like to separate my personal e-mail from my work e-mail from my text messages.

Also, on outlook I have folders that I move my e-mails to. I can't seem to view any of the e-mails that I move to a folder, on my blackberry.

Anybody know of good ways to organize your blackberry e-mails?

Thanks

Need more information here. Are you using BES (corporate or Hosted) or BIS? Who is your Provider? If you're on BES, only folders on your exchange server are accessible on your BB, not Local Folders (I think, don't use BES). If you're using BIS Version 1.8 you can log in to your Webclient and set up folders for separating mail. If it's BIS 2.0, you're SOL.

Hope this helps.

As far as "organizing" on your blackberry - you can create different "views"... The default view will show everything. You can do a "search" and then build a view for only text messages for instance ...then assign a shortcut (alt x (with x being a letter)...)

Then you just choose ALT X to see your text, personal mail, work mail etc

Some searches are there by default -- use the "recal" option to see those.

Actually, with BIS 1.8 you can create folders and file the emails in those, and set up filters such that when you go to file them the correct folder is selected. This option was eliminated in the "Great Upgrade" to BIS 2.0, effectively crippling the ability to manage your emails.

Hope this helps.

Ya I liked 1.8 mucho better! On top of that I could use me BIS for addresses and email storage...

I'm using both. Bes for work and bis for my hotmail account--i think. So all messages are coming into the same place.
Also, none of my folders which I created in outlook for my work account are showing the emails that I filed there. Furthermore when I do get a new text message it shows up with all of my emails and when I look in my text inbox they don't show up. I wish I had I had known that all I had to do was enable java script to view hotmail.com. Instead I paid the 20 bucks to get hotmail messages on my bb. Maybe I'll just disable my hotmail account on my bb and just go to the hotmail url. That way I will maintain separation. Am I making sense? I am a cingular customer btw.

i find on BES the only filed messages that show are the ones files since the BB was activated - I use BIS as well and have 2 sets of folders, the BES and BIS are separate for me... and with 4.1.284 SMS are in their own area anyhow, so there... three separate areas!
