Email Impractical with Q9


Sep 26, 2007, 10:30 AM
I am your run-of-the-mill "E-tard", and even I find this unbelievable!

I set up my email using my Outlook account. Because my business email is very public, I receive over 200 spam emails a day. I have a spam filter on the Outlook account.

Once my email was configured thru the Q auto-sync, I would receive these unwanted spam emails because the emails were pulled from the server, not my inbox. I was told this was the only possible way to do this. My only option was to only allow specific senders thru my VERY LIMITED push preferences. This is not practical either, as I need to get email from people contacting me thru my business website.

But that's not the worst part! There is no option to block attachments on emails coming to the ph...

Don't know what you can do about the spam, but you can set limits on the size of the files you receive in e-mail. If you get one with a big attachment, you can choose to download the whole message or just wait and check it on a PC.

I get spam in my POP3 account, but I have to wait until I can get to my PC to mark them as spam so my e-mail service can filter them in the future.

I have had the q9 for about a week and I am overall pleased with the e-mail. however, I have used a backberry before and I feel that if an email machine is what your after then the bb woud be a better choice for you.

I think you will find the bb is very easy to setup and since your using it as a business phone abd receiving multiple email the bb has a true push system that will suit you better. the filters will most likey work better as well.

I've never used a Blackberry. I thought the Q had "true push" e-mail -- in fact, I usually get my business e-mail on the Q before it hits my PC in box. What's the advantage of the Blackberry? (It does sound like the spam filter is better than Exchange's.)
