    Disappearing new email icon

    Advertisement



    New Pearl owner (8110 vodafone uk, BIS) here (4 days old)!

    I've looked through the forums and there's lots about disappearing emails but I can't find anything to help with this:
    The notification icon for new emails seems to disappear after a while (maybe 5 minutes) and the LED stops flashing (repeat notification is set). Sometimes I get no notification at all and stumble on the email either on Outlook on my PC or in the message folders.

    Am I being really thick??

    My bb also vibrates when my email arrives (the led only blinks for so long ) you need to read up on profiles/notifications as there are many many things you can do there. I will see if I can find a link for you.

    Thanks Bluebell. I think I have the notifications set properly because most of the time it works.
    The problem is that the notification arrives as normal but if I wait before viewing the email it gets marked as read automatically.
    Odd huh?

    That's weird ! Is your outlook set to mark emails as read after a certain amount of time?
    Hopefully someone who knows more than I will come to your assistance.

    Me again!!

    I wonder if you could tell me what vodafones new prices for BIS are as I believe they brought new plans in at beginning of February.
    They used to charge Ł15 for 6mb of data & to get more data you had to sign up to vodafone live for an extra Ł7.50 (this gives you another 120mb )
    Vodafones website is not the easiest to navigate as all the blackerries are in the business section.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm on a small business price plan so I'm not sure of the personal plan details I'm afraid!

    Re: Disappearing new email icon

    Ahaaa....

    I think I just found something out by sitting with my Pearl next to my PC running Outlook....

    The notification icon and flashing LED remain until Outlook send/receives and gets the email.

    As soon as that happens they disappear, even if I don't actually open the email in Outlook and it stays unread

    i.e. the instant the message arrives in Outlook my Pearl stops telling me about it.

    Needless to say this only happens to the account that goes to Outlook (e.g. gmail/SMS etc. are fine)

    Anyone else have any experience of this?

    If so can I stop it happening so that my icon and LED remain until I view the message on my Pearl?
