Hotmail icon missing...?

[ Edited ]



I recently updated my device software to, and shortly afterwards I configured my Blackberry with my Hotmail address. When I did so I noticed a message towards the end of the e-mail setup process saying a new icon had been added to my home screen (an envelope with a globe at the bottom). I couldn't find this particular icon but assumed that my existing envelope icon was what the dialog had referred to.


However, on browsing through the picture folders on my device I found a .png file which had what appeared to be a Hotmail specific 'new message' icon which (I imagined) would appear on the envelope upon receiving a message from that account. I tried e-mailing myself to see if it would work but instead got the standard new message icon, I.E a white asterix on a red circle.


In my attempts to correct this I deleted my e-mail account and made it again. The .png file has now disappeared and I still can't seem to get Hotmail specific 'new message' icons.


It may seem like an insignificant problem but if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.


PS: As far as I can tell this is the icon I'm looking for....




Cheers. Man Very Happy
