I have just recently taken over a position of an ex-employee and all of his email now gets forwarded to me. Unfortunately he was part of a mailing list that receives error messages when his websites experience database problems. I also currently receive all work related email on my blackberry. Quite frankly I am quite tired of waking up every morning and having to delete 20+ email messages on my phone.

I was told there was some way to mark certain email addresses as undeliverable to where they fill up a specified folder and don't get sent to my blackberry. Does anyone know how to create these rules or boundaries in Outlook 2010?

If you have a third party spam filtering service, you can probably add certain email addresses or even entire domains to a blacklist that will be rejected before it even gets to your mail server.

Assuming you have Exchange, you could also create a rule in Outlook to move messages that meet certain criteria to a different folder that isn't sync'ed with your BlackBerry (it only does Inbox and Sent Items by default), or even just delete them.

Your second answer applied to my scenario quite well. I just created a rule that applied to those kind of emails. They get filed away when I receive a message and don't get sent to my blackberry. Thanks. – GMitch Jul 7 '11 at 19:25
