the fact is that BB messaging functionality is IMO designed to be minimal, efficient, and easy to use. It's really geared towards corporate use, not power users.
Reqwireless EmailViewer is out there, haven't shelled out the $$$$ to try it yet.
No, actually Reqwireless Emailviewer is NOT out there...the company was bought by Google, I believe, and it is now not available. Don't mis-understand my original post...I DO like the minimal-ness of the current email program, but what I am looking for is the filtering ability to cut down on having to scroll through so much unusable information that is not pertinent to reading the actual email and basic folder display. It is a fairly simple idea to achieve and has been done on other platforms. Other than that, I actually like the current program and don't really want a lot of bells and whistles added on to slow it down.
And yes, i remember that the Blackberry used to have third party, free, open source e-mail software that added lots of great functionality and wish we had that back!! It'll happen eventually.....
