Re: how to mark all messages 'read'?

Do you mean only on the BB or on both the BB and outlook/hotmail/gmail/etc?

 

If only on the BB, scroll up to right above the most recent message (in the date bar), then click the Menu key or Trackpad. You should get a menu where one of the options is "Mark Prior Opened". You will be able to have all messages appear as "read".

 

I'm not sure about how to do this for on the BB and on the mail server, so hopefully someone else will come along and be able to answer that.

 

Cheers!

Re: how to mark all messages 'read'?

In the your Inbox, go to highlight the day's date, then on your menu, you will find "mark prior read".

the key is to highlight the date.  Only when you highlight the date, does "mark prior read" show up in the menu.

 

What this means of course, is that Blackberry provides you to choose which date in your inbox, you want as the date prior to which you wan tot mark items read.

 

This stumped me at first, but once I figured this out, I think it is a pretty good piece of funtionality provided by RIM.

 

I hope this helps.
