Removing the mini-letter icon for 'new e-mail' from the top nav bar on the home screen???

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to do this (see subject line)? Would love to know. I don't want to deactivate getting e-mail on my phone, but everytime I look at my home screen I don't want to see I have a new e-mail (i.e. especially when work finishes at the end of the day). I've moved the main e-mail icon out of the bottom nav bar so that I have to access it via the menu, but the mini-letter alerts icon still comes up in the top nav bar. I have been able to take the number count off this mini-letter alerts icon, but I can't get rid of the icon itself. There must be a way to turn it on and off? I've litterally looked in every part of the menu/options/etc. but no luck.


Please help!


Thank you Smiley Happy
