Creating a separate icon on the phone for BES messages

I am running Blackbery Professional Software and was trying to create a separate icon on the smartphones for BES messages. I found the instructions but before I did this I just wanted to make sure this will work on the Professional Software because the instructions are for Blackberry Enterprise Server.

Please use plain text.

Re: Creating a separate icon on the phone for BES messages

What version of device and OS are you running? On the newest versions you can use the DESKTOP mail icon and remove mail from being delivered to the catch all messages folder via Messages > Menu > Options > Inbox Settings
