Email and Text MSGs

I have the Curve 8900 and I have not figured out how to seperate my regular text messages from my email.  Whenever I receive an email it goes to my messages folder and my email folder.  Does anyone know if there is a way to seperate the two?

Re: Email and Text MSGs

Messages folder > Menu > Options > General Settings > SMS and Email Inboxes = Separate.


That will move your SMS text messages to a separate folder. 


ALL of your email messages will go to your main messages folder, you can't change that.


Just hide your email-specific folder, it really isn't needed.

Re: Email and Text MSGs


just read your last line of message saying to hide email specific folders as they are not needed?


I can only reply to my emails from the email specific folder - I get a little red cross to the left of any message I try to write and send from the messages folder - can you explain the reason for that?


I currently have an issue in that my work emails that used to come into both the messages folder and their 'specific' folder, now just come in to the messages one, and hence I can no longer reply to them??


very frustrated!


thanks for any advice!
