Before I query all of you Berry experts for solutions to my problems, I figure I would ask a very baseline newbie questions. Because I'm getting the feeling that what I thought a Blackberry did, and what it actually does do, are very different.
Inbox? As best as I can tell, there is one giant 'lump everything in here' folder on this device. Called "messages". That is where incoming emails go, that is where sent emails go, and if I have a secondary pop internet account... they all go there too.
I was sort of expecting, ya know... an inbox and a sent items folder. Like an email client. Is this not the case?
Solved! Go to Solution.

So I have 1 big catch all folder on this thing.... but I can filter the views of that folder to obtain something similar to what I am looking for.
Here is probably an obvious question then. Why not have actual folders for these things? "Inbox1, Inbox2, Sent Items, etc" instead of one big cluster bomb that I have to tweak to work? Hahah. Sorry, I'm just incredibly annoyed after trying to figure this all out. Is that just not the way the technology works? Or is this a design decision.
Anyway, is there a way to manually set this up to have it be more like an organized email client - maybe with rules or rediction so that I have an inbox and a sent items folder?? Having to tweak viewing options everytime I want to see just my inbox or my sent items seems unnecessary.
