Deleting FaceBook notifications on BlackBerry Curve 8520

Hello

I have a questions re deleting FB email on BB Curve 8520.

On my old Curve (8310) when I deleted FB notifications it would also delete them in my email inbox. 

It does not do that on the 8520;  is there anyway I can change that?

 

Thanks

Loekie

I turned off the facebook SMS notifications and just use Facebook Mobile for my Blackberry.  The onloy place I now get my notifications in in my messages folder

Re: Deleting FaceBook notifications on BlackBerry Curve 8520

Thanks, I have that is well.

 

But what I'm asking is how come it doesn't delete them from my email  account inbox when I delete them

from my phone after I've viewed them.

My other BB curve (8319) did do that.

 

Now when I delete from phone they are still in my email inbox account.

 

Thanks

Open the FB app.

Goto Options.

Go down to "Leave email notification messages on mail server"

Uncheck this box.

 

So as soon as your BB receives the email notification, the email will go into the 'bin' on your mail server.

This normally empties itself after the message is 30 days old (email carrier dependent).

So your email account is never full of facebook notifications!

Re: Deleting FaceBook notifications on BlackBerry Curve 8520

Thanks; but have one more question:  does that mean it will delete them when I delete on BB

or delete them automatically without me even looking at them??

 

Sorry I am new to all this (even though I had a BB before :smileysurprised:)

 

Thanks

Re: Deleting FaceBook notifications on BlackBerry Curve 8520

Im also having this problem. It started happening as soon as i upgraded to the new facebook app. Every time I do a hard rest all my old messages dated months ago re appear and do not delete. Its very annoying and taking up space and memory.
