    Hi all,

    Now that the iphone is finally on sprint - I'm planning on switching to the 4s but I wonder if you may help me with some questions.

    1) How many email accounts does it support?

    2) email filtering - I only like i recieve some email on my phone, and all of then from my desktop. On blackberry its easy to set up a filter to not send email from, for example amazon (i set up a filter called "amazon" and set a rule to let any email from amazon.com through), is this possible on the iphone.

    Thanks!

    As many as you'd like, I believe.


    There is no filter.

    You can probably get creative with Gmail rules and labels to achieve a similar result.

    thanks for the replies, so what do u guys do with the accounts that downlaod all the spammy type emails? that's quite annoying, but I could possibly set up all those accounts to one email address that could just be manually checked for emails, hmmm... gotta think now!

    I use Gmail, and it does a fantastic job in controlling spam.
