E-Mail Filters gone! - BB Z10

I've been a BB user since 2007; I just bought my Z10; while I love the phone and feel like it's a very good device, I am a little disappointed at the fact that e-mail filters are gone.

On my Bold 9900 and previous phones, I used to have filters setup, which was relatively easy to do online and even from the phone. There doesn't seem to be a way to tell your Z10 which messages you don't want to receive.


Has anybody found a way around this? This gives me a hard time because I am now getting thousands of emails I do not want to get on my phone.


Thanks in advance for your help

Re: E-Mail Filters gone! - BB Z10

atlarep, the BlackBerry10 devices use ActiveSync, which basically mirror the mail on you server.


If you have an IMAP email server, you can set those filters ON the server to immediately upon reciept, move certain messages to different folder, and not sync to the Z10.


ALSO:  You have your mobile phone number listed as your "My Mobile Provider" or carrier. Putting your phone number out on the internet on these public forums for the world to see, is not wise. To change that, at the top of this page click on My Settings > Personal Profile > Personal Information, and in the entry block for "Carrier" type the name of your mobile provider.

Thanks for your response, I will definitely try that.
Thanks for the privacy advise too, I was not aware of that.
