    not all the time.. but if there's a view where i can manage ONLY sent messages... because right now i'm scrolling through both incoming and outgoing messages and deleting. if i could view ONLY sent messages, i'd be able to use "delete prior"

    edit: i'm starting to use the SEARCH function to mass delete emails to a single recipient (such as my flickr)... but it's a pain going thru the rest

    yea you just open the message folder. press the menu key, scroll all the way down to view folder and it will give you a list of all the folders and you just choose sms outbox and it will show all of your sent messages.

    I don't think there is a way to view only the sent emails.... I know you can delete all the messages and then go into your mailbox on the computer and then mark an email from your inbox as unread and it will resend to your phone like you never got it... That's about the best I can do for ya... Sorry... If you find out something else though let me know

    you can hide sent messages and then go to view folder>sms outbox> and delete from time to time. I think that will be the easiest thing for you.

    I think what you want to do is to create a saved search and assign it to an [Alt] key combination.

    Go into Messages, hit the Menu button and select Search.

    The one thing you want to set in the search is in the Show: line - hit the space bar until it's set to Sent Only. You can also filter by account or however else you want.

    Once you've set up the search, hit the Menu button and select Save. Give it a Title like senT (this will appear at the top of the screen when you use it), and assign an [Alt] key for it. S is pre-defined for SMS Messages, so I use T.

    The search will now execute. However, now whenever you're in the Messages List, hitting [Alt]T will execute the saved search and display just your sent items. Once they're displayed, if you use Delete Prior, only the messages displayed (your Sent messages) will be deleted.

    Alt-O does this on every BB out-of-the-box. It does include PIN's and SMS but all Outgoing.

    That's awesome!!!!! Now, how do you go back and edit a saved search?
