Profile exceptions for Torch?



I'm new to the forum, and have a question about my BB Torch 9800 from AT&T.  Is there a way to set exceptions for specific profile settings?  Specifically, I'm trying to create a custom profile that only rings when I get an email from a specific address, or perhaps a text from a specific number or address.  If that doesn't work, then perhaps I can set the profile to ring me only for texts, and not for voice mail alerts?


I'm trying to do away with my antique pager, so my answering service can use my BB to reach me at night.  Tired of getting asked if people still use pagers....  Smiley LOL
