BlackBerry: Emptying your Inbox and Getting Started

An emtpy Blackberry inbox relies on two things:

Settings

If you change the settings of your email on your blackberry it will help
you process them quicker

  1. To not show filed and sent items so it resembles you Inbox
    • Go to Menu* > Options > General Settings
    • Change Show FILED items to NO
    • Change Show SENT items to NO
    • Save when exiting the menu
  2. To make sure that if you delete a mail on your Blackberry that it is
    also deleted in your mailbox

    • Go to Menu > Options > Email Conciliation
    • Change the delete function to delete on both Blackberry and server
    • Save when exiting the menu
  3. To turn off new email notifications
    • Select Profiles
    • Select the active profile and click Edit
    • Select Messages
    • Change the volume to mute and turn off the LED repeat notification if you’d like
    • Save when exiting the profile

Emptying

To file emails in your action folders or filed items press the i key. This will bring up your folder list and you can put the email in the
desired folder.

On a Blackberry I would be a practical about the two minute rule, a quick yes or no to a colleague is fine. But if your reply needs a couple of lines why not park it in your DO THIS WEEK for processing when back behind your computer (more like a 20 second rule).

* The Menu key typically looks like bb menu
