Stop receiving emails temporary

Dear All. I would like to stop receiving emails temporary. Currently, I have set up a POP3 account and I have unchecked "Wireless Syncing" (Reconciliación Inalámbrica, I have Spanish OS installed) and saved changes but the emails are received. Any idea? Regards

Re: Stop receiving emails temporary

The only way I can find to switch off email is to switch off data services, which also means that your Blackberry messenger won't work either. It would be good if someone invented a way of keeping BB messenger on but email off so we don't all pay huge roaming charges when abroad.

To switch off data services go to Open tray->Manage connections->Mobile network options->Data services -> switch to OFF. You can also opt underneath to switch off while roaming abroad. Hope this helps.

Re: Stop receiving emails temporary

Call your carrier and ask for temporary suspend.

other (longer) way.

Go to your BIS account web page, delete (or just write wrong password) your e-mail configuration from BIS account.

When you will need, restore from same page 

 

Our carriers give such possibility.

Re: Stop receiving emails temporary

Thank you very much. The way of changing the password is a good trick but I was looking for a more "standard or proffesional" way :Sorcerer:

Thanks again

  "standard or proffesional"   :Whistling:

 

Call your carrier and ask for temporary suspend.  :Shifty:

Re: Stop receiving emails temporary

I'm not sure if you'll get notification of this since the post is marked solved, but...

 

There is another way to avoid having messages delivered to your BB without deleting the account or dealing with your carrier, as long as you do not have any filters enabled on the device.  Go to EMAIL SETUP and log in.  Scroll to the email account you wish to pause, and select FILTERS.  Scroll down and change "WHEN NO FILTERS APPLY" to "DO NOT FORWARD MESSAGES TO THE DEVICE".  Select SAVE and exit.  Your account is intact, but you'll receive no messages.  When you want to receive messages again, go back and change the selection to the original setting.  This is easier and quicker to do than to explain it...  I use this frequently.  ~Good luck.

Re: Stop receiving emails temporary

Hi, I am not sure that it will work for BIS account. 

Tomorrow I will test it.
