8. Confirm your filter by clicking the Add Filter button.

You return to the Filter screen, where you can see your
newly created filter in the list.

If you have a hard time setting the criteria for a filter, just take a
best guess and then test it by having a friend send you a test
e-mail. If the test e-mail didn’t get filtered correctly, set the condi-
tions until you get them right.

Searching through Your
Messages Like a Pro

Searching is one of those functions you probably won’t use every
day — but when you do run a search, you usually need the infor-
mation fast. Take a few minutes here to familiarize yourself with
the general search.

Running a general search
A general search is a broad search from which you can perform
keyword searches of your messages.

To run a general search:

1. Open the Messages application.

2. In the messages list, press the Menu key and select

3. In the Search screen that appears, fill in your search cri-
teria (see Figure 7-6).

The search criteria for a general search follow:

• Name: This is the name of the sender or recipient to
search by.

• In Field: This is related to the Name criterion. Use this
drop-down list to indicate where the name might
appear, such as in the To or Cc field. Your choices are
the From, To, Cc, Bcc, or any address fields.

• Subject: This is where you type some or all the key-
words that appear in the subject.

• Message: Here you enter keywords that appear in the

• Service: If you set up your Pearl to receive e-mail from
more than one e-mail account, you can specify which
e-mail account to search for.

• Folder: This is the folder in which you want to per-
form the search. Generally, you should search all

• Show: This drop-down list specifies how the search
result will appear: namely, whether you want to see
only e-mails that you sent or e-mails that you received.
From the drop-down list, your choices are Send and
Received, Received Only, Sent Only, Saved Only, Draft
Only, and Unopened Only.

• Type: This drop-down list specifies the type of mes-
sage that you’re trying to search for: e-mail, SMS, or
voice mail. From the drop-down list, your choices are:
All, Email, Email With Attachments, PIN, SMS, Phone,

From the Search screen shown in Figure 7-6, you can have
multiple search criteria or just a single one (up to you).

4. Press the Menu key and select Search to launch your

The search results appear onscreen.

You can narrow the search results by performing a second search
on the initial results. For example, you can search by sender and
then narrow those hits by performing a second search by subject.

You can search by subject when you’re looking for a specific e-mail
titled by a specific subject that you already know. Just scroll to an
e-mail bearing the same specific subject you’re searching for, press
the Menu key, and select Search Subject.
