Adding a new e-mail account

Can I add a new e-mail account just to send or forward out messagesThe reason of this is that I do not want these messages downloaded off the server.  I use another (non BB) e-mail client that accesses this account and I want the mail to go thereWhen I tried to add this account with a dummy password, BB could not verify it and would not let me add itIs there a work around?

Re: Adding a new e-mail account

Hi there!

 

If I am understanding you correctly, you want to be able to send from an email account on your BB, but not receive from that account on the BB. If so, then don't use a dummy password. Rather, configure the account properly but then set the default filter to "Do Not Forward" and then nothing will come down to the BB from the Server.
