    Noob with a ?

    Advertisement



    I just got a blackberry pearl and I had a quick question...hopefully someone can help!

    My friend also has a blackberry pearl and he has it linked to a few email addresses, and depending what email address gets a message, a red asterik thing show up next to that email's envelope on his home screen.

    I have mine linked to 3 and the asterik only shows up on the messages envelope, not the individual email's envelope.

    He's not sure how his got like that, and I don't know either, but I sure would like too.

    So if anyone knows, I would appreciate any assistance!

    Thank You!

    ebald,

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    I beleived that was pretty much standard...
    What Operating System are you running? (options>about 3rd line down "v4.x.x.xxx") and what Theme?

    Do you see the individual account folders on your screen for each account?

    GaryF.....I'm running v4.2.1.96, and I have individual folders on my home screen..
    My theme displays the red asterik on my SMS/MMS folder...so I think it should come up on the rest, don't you think?? or is it a setting..

    beeshabo...

    Just so I understand...

    You get a red asterick on your SMS folder when you have an unopened email? Or in the master MESSAGES folder?

    YES.....somewhat!! LOL

    Well I have 3 folders on my Home Screen

    1) SMS/MMS Text Messages
    2) BlackBerry Email
    3) Yahoo Email

    I get a Red Asterik on my SMS/MMS Text Message folder when I get a new Text Message (unread), but I get NO Red Asterik on my (2) Email Folders when I get a new Email (unread).......

    bee...

    Hmmm....I am not sure where to point you for that issue...unless it is theme related.... (suggest you change themes and see if it makes any diffference)

    Perhaps someone else has an answer to this one... in the meantime I will browse around and see if I can find anything related.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ ok don't know if I will get this out to you fast enough but this is what I did.. I went under email setup for the blackberry. Same place you set up your blackberry email addy, and after I set that up, I added my google addy and yahoo. I have a folder for each and I get the red star when I have a new email. Hope that helps, if not then sorry.

    Maybe try to delete your e-mail from your phone and re-register it.

    I have three envelopes for the three email addresses that I have and I went into Email - General Options - SMS and Email inboxes and selected separate (it is the last entry)

    lauren25....I will try that right now!!

    Is there something I'm missing when I do an email setup...
    I just hit add email account>enter my email address>password> and hit add

    that's it right??
