Default when no filters apply: Forward messages to handheld I click on the default and then change it to not forward and when ready i go back in and set it again to forward. It worked perfectly while I was traveling and I did not want to get charged for roaming data over a period of a whole month.
Excellent suggestion: Use your BIS filters feature. This is a little more involved, but this works perfectly for international travellers who want to save data charges. You can always manually login to your BIS account on your laptop to check your BlackBerry emails via your laptop instead, after all!
I personally use this feature to vibrate my emails ONLY on the important emails from certain email addresses -- all my other emails reach my BlackBerry silently. The BIS filters feature, can of course, be used to force the email NOT to be transmitted to BlackBerry (and stay on the web server)
