Is it possible to start my application from a link within an email? Or is it possible to listen for the opening of an email in a special format and the start the application?
My claim is have my application on the BlackBerry in which the user can approve or reject a workflow. And to not have the user start the application from time to time I want to send the user an email and let him start the application from within this email.

You can also listen for incoming email messages using the FolderListener interface and take the required action when a specific message arrives. Here are a couple of examples that make use of a FolderListener:
