Re: new owner. couple of questions please

1. Yes. To delete adjacent messages, scroll over the first, and press the SHIFT key while scrolling over the next or more adjacent messages. While ALL are highlighted, either press the DELETE key or Menu > Delete.


You can also scroll the top date bar divider (or any date bar, like yesterday's) and press Menu > Delete all prior.


2.  Your main messages folder will collect ALL mail by default, and you can't change that. You can separate out your SMS messages from that folder to its own specific folder at Messages > Options > General Options > SMS and Email Inboxes = Separate.


For you yahoo-specific email folder, hide it. Scroll to it, click Menu > Hide. Then Menu again and make sure the SHOW ALL is not checked.
