Re: blocking incoming email

Hello,

 

Please see this KB to see how the built in on-device firewall works:

  • KB23877 How to block incoming messages using the BlackBerry smartphone firewall

Unfortunately, it is actually backwards from what you desire. Rather than filtering out a specific email, it will filter everything EXCEPT for (e.g.,) entries in your contact list.

 

As an alternative, you can investigate the BIS-based filter capability, which may provide you what you desire:

  • KB28151 How to add a filter from the BlackBerry smartphone for a BlackBerry Internet Service account

Note that neither of these will do anything about the email arrival at your email server...all either of these will do is block things from coming to your BB.

 

Good luck!

Re: blocking incoming email

Thanks for the info. I will give it a try. One specific email sends me about 10 spam emails a day. Aggravating

Re: blocking incoming email

If it's a webmail account you can always create a filter in the webmail account itself as well.

Please use plain text.
