    Post Messages vs Mailbox

    Advertisement



    - okay I need help! I am new and don't now how to fix this or if it is possible. All my calls, text messages and e-mail show up under my "Messages" [mailbox with red flag] and then the e-mails are repeated again under my e-mail icon. Is there a way to have them just show up under my e-mail icon and not under the Messages icon?

    Thanks!

    Hello Spunky!

    Welcome to PinStack!

    Firstly, let's separate your SMS texts from your e-mails by opening any Messages folder, pressing the BB menu button (to the left of the trackball), selecting Options>General Options. Scroll down and you'll see SMS and Email Inboxes. Change the setting there to Separate and you'll then have an Inbox specifically for your text messages.

    Next, let's address the call logging. Press the green phone button, BB menu button and scroll to Options, click on that and go to Call Logging and select that. Change this option to None and that'll get rid of the calls going into your Messages folder.

    Lastly, if you're like me, I have several e-mail accounts that I like to keep separated. Some people prefer to hide the individual e-mail account icons and use the main Messages repository. There's no way to keep copies of the messages from going in there, but what I do is hide that main Messages icon by scrolling over to the icon, pressing the BB menu button and selecting Hide. It'll still be there (and you can see it whenever you so choose by pressing the BB menu button from the Home Screen and choosing Show All.....when you want to hide them again, do the same thing, just uncheck Show All), but you won't see it. Just remember it's there in case you ever see the e-mail notification icon and you swear you don't have any new messages to read!

    Hope this helps!

    Oh, a couple more pieces of advice!

    Please update your profile so we know your device, OS, etc for future reference and to help you better next time. Up in the righthand corner is a blue box. Click on the Control Panel to update your profile, preferences, etc.

    Second, go through this thread to get to know your way around the Stacks!
