Push email on Android

Post by Screw_Michigan » Fri Aug 31, 2012 11:23 am

Does anyone know if it is possible to set up push email with Android where the phone only alerts you if you receive email from certain email addresses? Thanks.

You are truly one of the worst pieces of shit to ever post on this board. Start giving up your paycheck for reparations now and then you can shut the fuck up about your racist blasts.

Can you log in to your account on the mail server to add a filter like "Forward To:"?

I don't know. Basically I think work wants me to get with the unwritten Washington expectation of everyone tethering themselves to their work email at all time (although work won't explicitly tell me to get work emails on my phone, I think its because people will tell them to pay for it if they explicitly tell you to get work email on your phone) and basically I only want to get alerts if certain people (i.e. my boss) send me an email.

Why do you need an email? Can't he just yell across the store, "Clean up in booth 6".

Most people who need regular access to work emails have company email accounts they use specifically for that.

Your company sounds like a cheap-ass operation. Drop an upper decker in the executive washroom, piss in the printer's toner cartridge and tell your boss "who gives a fat fukken rat cock".

What can I say? I've been jizzmopping long enough to not be surprised with the ways of the industry.

You really don't get it. Why? Because you're a fucking Canuck.

Forward the mail to a gmail account, where you can set up a filter and put a label on it. Then you can place an shortcut icon for that label on your phone home screen, and just check it whenever you want to.

coming in real late to this but

set up rules on exchange to copy emails that come from the boss and select individuals to a 2nd gmail account that you only use for work and that you link to your phone. Android phones can now connect to multiple gmail accounts so you can see both, without having to use your own gmail account. Also, just make sure you aren't breaking some corporate policy by forwarding out internal communications to an external address. Be aware that this is traceable and can get you fired if the company has rules against it or if you were warned not to do it.

Or

Set up an exchange connection on your phone, but don't have it make any noise or anything when new email comes in and only leave email on there for 1 day. In other words, in general a phone/tablet (android/icrap/ms) will store an email for up to 3 days, just reduce that to 1 day. That way, you can occasionally check your email after hours/weekend to make sure you aren't missing anything critical. If someone complains you didn't jump on an email after hours, just tell them to fuck off and that you didn't hear the "ding" and that email isn't meant for critical stuff so if they wanted you to look at it, they should of called. and oh by the way, you misplaced your phone, all weekend long, so there. Or do what I did, tell them you are drunk and while you are happy to jump right on and fix their problem, its against corporate policy to do work while under the influence and oh yeah, btw, they can't tell you not to drink after hours when they don't pay you so, once again, get fucked!

Also, be aware that some companies are leveraging Exchange 2010's ability to secure/lock/wipe your phone or purchase something like Mobile Iron, which can get a lot of info stored on your phone/tablet and show it to the mobile iron admin, such as your location and what apps you have installed. At my last job, I told them that since this isn't their phone, they can go shove it and I would not be installing Mobile Iron on my personal device. I did connect my phone with my current company so I could catch emails, but I only did my phone and did not add it to any of my other 3 or 4 mobile devices. The current job is fairly generous with their mobile plan reimbursement policy though, so its a bit easier look past some of the rules they set on Exchange.
