About email message filters

You can create email message filters to specify which email messages are forwarded to your BlackBerry® device and which remain in the email application on your computer.

Email message filters are applied to email messages based on the order in which they appear in your list of email message filters. If you create multiple email message filters that could apply to the same email message, you must decide which one should be applied first by placing that filter higher in the list.

Create an email message filter

To perform this task, your BlackBerry® device must be associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server that supports this feature. For more information, contact your administrator. If you use the BlackBerry® Internet Service, see the BlackBerry Internet Service Online Help for more information.

About multiple message lists

Depending on your email setup option, you might be able to associate your BlackBerry® device with more than one email account. For example, you might be able to associate your device with a work email account and one or more personal email accounts. If you associate your device with more than one email account, multiple message lists might appear on your device. In a message list for a specific email account, you can open and manage email messages for that email account, and you can send messages using the email address for the email account. For more information about associating your device with more than one email account, see the BlackBerry Internet Service Online Help.

Depending on your theme, a separate message list might appear for SMS text messages and MMS messages.
