Configuration Best Practices
- DO always contact your mobile phone carrier technical support for any assistance in
setting up new features on your personal mobile phone devices. Provide them with
an explanation of what you are attempting to set up and provide them with the information
from this page.
- DO check the preferences and options sections of your phone's e-mail setup application.
Many items such as signature, time between e-mail checks and so on can be found there.
Simply checking a different check box is all it takes to set new choices. Your phone
carrier technical support can also direct you to specific features if you are still
unable to find the option you are looking for.
- DO ensure you have a limitless data and text plan. Different carriers charge for e-mail
using one or the other and some cases even both charges. Without unlimited options
too much e-mail could cause your phone bill to skyrocket.
- DO set your phone to only download about 25 messages at a time. This should be few
enough for a fast download time for your phone. Attachments do take longer.. You
should consider only downloading 10 at a time if the speed is too slow.
- YOU CANNOT determine which e-mail your phone receives or which it notifies you about. This
setup simply causes your phone to check your GroupWise account for e-mail and alert
you if any is new. It cannot determine sender or whether it is notifying you are
12pm or 12am.
- DO NOT keep all messages downloaded to your phone stored on your phone. Smart phones have
a lot of memory but there are also several applications and other functions running.
Each phone is slightly different but it is important to keep an eye on available memory
for best performance.
- DO NOT select the check box for deleting mail from the server once your phone downloads it. This will create a single copy of all mail on your phone only and completely remove it from your GroupWise account. It will not be recoverable and and unable to be archived.
