Email preferances different after device software upgrade

Since the upgrade that I installed on my BB last weekend, my email program has been different. I have the display sort order preferences set to name (from), then subject. First, the name (from) is showing backwards, for example, "National Post" is showing as "Post, National", "Geographic, Canadian" or "Canada, Microsoft". The subject line is fine. Next thing I don't like is that name (from) line is in bold font.

Thank you very much! Odd spot to put the name display settings. That solves the most irritating of the two issues. :smileyvery-happy:

Ok go into options again and click on click on display then font. You can change from bold to regular or plain. Change actual font.

Re: Email preferances different after device software upgrade

Yes, I looked at that too. It's currently on BBAlpha Sans 9 plain, with font smoothing, which is the easiest for me to read. It's odd that it's just the name field in my email that is bold. Maybe I will just have to accept it?

Re: Email preferances different after device software upgrade

That seems weird . Try Arial font plain.

Re: Email preferances different after device software upgrade

Nope. Based on your suggestion, I also tried a combination of other fonts, sizes and style. I even turned the BB off, hoping it might reset somehow. But no change. 'Scratch head.'

Re: Email preferances different after device software upgrade

That's really weird. You might call your provider and ask them to connect you too BB Tech support. Maybe there is some other setting I'm missing.
