Now, everything is ok, push email service is great and what I really need since I travel alot around the world and this give me the possibility to stay in contact with my customers. One thing. When I'm in Italy, I don't need the email to be sent to my device. Is there a way - an option, to enable/disable receiving the emails on my 8700g while in Italy?
I tried to find in the manual or trough the menu of the BB but I didn't find anything. I'm using the Blackberry Internet Service, configured with my work account.
Thanks alot to all of you, BB guru right there.
Here's the problem: my suggestion below will work for older versions of Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) but may have to be modified for the new BIS 2.0 used by T-Mobile. Anyway some variation on this should work...
You can go to your Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) and create a filter which, with a little cleverness, can capture every incoming email. (For example, have it apply to every email that does not have the word "squeegee" in the From field...unless you know someone named squeegee.) Then have the filter deposit the emails in a subfolder which you can create in BIS and also instruct it not to forward them to your handheld.
You can then check those emails anywhere in the world by signing into BIS.
...again I'm not sure that this exact method works on BIS 2.0.
