E-mail options - can you stop it from automatically getting e-mail??

I am happy to be able to access my personal e-mail when I want, but that's the point - it should be WHEN I WANT IT. Does anyone know how to set an option that I have to "get" mail rather than it coming to me automatically??

Thanks

a new user

Re: E-mail options - can you stop it from automatically getting e-mail??

Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.

 

Actually, no. The BlackBerry and RIM's "push" to the device email technology is what put RIM and the BlackBerry on the map. Email comes regardless and is dependable to do so. The Palm is different, where you tell the the device to go grab email when you want it (and if you can connect and get it). 

 

We don't have that problem on the BlackBerry.

OK, I did have a palm before and really prefer to be the boss of when I get e-mail. So, related question, can you delete more than 1 at a time? Is there a way to highlight them and do a group delete?

Absolutely, very basic.

 

1. Scroll to the first email you wish to delete and press AND hold the lower left shift key WHILE scrolling across additional consecutive emails. When all to be deleted are highlighted, press the delete key (right of the L key) or Menu > Delete.

 

2. To delete an entire day's emails or all emails ON and before a certain data, scroll to the date bar separator > Menu > Delete All Prior.

 

Finally, may I suggest you visit this link below to Stinsonddog's Tips and go the Bold Tips. Download that PDF and print it out. Now, with the Bold inhand, read and practice and try the tips... good sutff there and you'll learn all the shortcuts soon.
