Overview

<content> Background
Message filters specify the types of messages that are forwarded to your BlackBerry smartphone and how they are forwarded. Message filters for BlackBerry smartphones that are activated on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server are controlled in the following ways:
  • BlackBerry smartphone users can set their filters wirelessly on the BlackBerry smartphone
  • The BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator can configure smartphone filters in BlackBerry Manager
Note: Filters are applied in the order that they appear in the filters list. If no filters apply to a message, the default filter is applied.
Filter synchronization process
The following process applies to filters created or edited on the BlackBerry smartphone and in BlackBerry Manager.
After you configure a filter, you might notice that messages are not being filtered although the filters and settings have synchronized and they are the same on the BlackBerry smartphone and in BlackBerry Manager. This occurs because the filters are not yet applied to the BlackBerry Messaging Agent.
The BlackBerry Messaging Agent scans the BlackBerry Configuration Database at a random interval (between 1 to 30 minutes) to find new or changed message filters. When the changes are read, they can take up to 15 minutes to be applied.
Note: Filters can take up to 45 minutes to become active after they are created or edited.
