Can I tempoarly disable a Email account?

I have a Storm with .148 software.

there are times that my wife wants to access her Email account when we are traveling so I have installed her Email on my Storm.

 

But I want to be able to temporaly disable her account rather than removing it.

 

Any easy ways to do this?

 

Thanks

Not really just disabled. Removing it from your BIS account setup or setting to not forward messages to your device at thet BIS setup, is on the only way.

Hello. Yes you can disable an e-mail account. From main menu go to e mail settings. The e mail accounts you have are listed at the top. Highlight the one you wish to disable and pop up the menu. Select filter option. You can then dissable the receive option; hit save. You will be prompted to enter the accounts password. When you wish to receive again, just reverse the process. Good Luck.

Thanks, that is the same as disabling from the BIS setup, which is where the "email settings" will take you. Same difference.
