Review: Motorola Q9M
Email Impractical with Q9
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 phone. As soon as I get an attachment (or combinations thereof)larger than 480K, my email will not sync. I get the same error message (on my phone log) saying "bad email". The only was to fix this is to pull up my Verizon account, my outlook email, and my email that's physically on the phone, and delete the "bad email". Often there are several that meet the criteria of "bad email", so I have to repeat the process again until all of the offending emails are deleted.
The combination of these two issues makes it virtually impossible to use the Q for email, which is the #1 reason I purchased it. My Verizon tech said the only option was to exchange it for a Blackberry.
