Creating a filter should be very simple for anyone that has done it through Outlook or Desktop Manager. The process is almost identical, first you need to select a Condition (from contains firstname.lastname@example.org), set an action (delete all emails), and enter a filter name. The only difference is that youâ€™re able to set a certain time frame for the filter to be active.
Message Alert overall is a pretty solid program but we do not suggest that you use it as your main program to filter your messages. The scenario that works best is that main filters that you will never touch or modify should be done through Desktop Manager and the temporary ones should be done through Message Alert. There is a reason for that, if you fully sync with your work station and your Blackberry your messages wonâ€™t get filtered properly if your Blackberry is turned off or the battery died. We believe the main use for Message Alerts is to filter out SMS messages and to set temporary email filters when youâ€™re on the road and do not have access to Outlook or Desktop Manager.
We do enjoy the program but it has limited appeal, before spending $25 on Message Alert try to justify the purchase by picturing a few scenarios that you may need to filter messages and then ask yourself â€œCan I do that through Desktop Manager?â€ If you answer â€œNoâ€, then Message Alert can be a very worthwhile investment. If youâ€™re still not sure, you can download the 30-day trial for Message Alert.
The program is available for $25.00 at Neon Toad, http://www.neontoad.com
