HI everyone. still getting to know the BOLD.. ( Iam in the Uk )

The top line of my menu is set up with  MESSAGES..( My) EMAIL..SMS..CONTACTS..BROWSER..VODAPHONE LIVE.


When I get an email it appears in the first 2 boxes.

When I answer an email it appears in the first 2 boxes

When I delete an email it is deleted from the first 2 boxes..

MESSAGES & EMAIL are an exact copy of each other...

Is there a reason for this or am I missing something.

That is a "feature" of BB's. If you have five email accounts each one gets its own icon but the mail is accumulated in the "messages" box.


So "email1@youracct.com" and email2@somewhereelse.com and so forth each have their own boxes, but all of the mail from them comes into the main message box. Whatever you do to the mail in the "messages" box gets done to the same email in its own box.


Simple really!
