Default Re-structuring Today Page

Please Login to Remove!

As a newbie, I am wondering why BB rather confusingly seperates, and sometimes repeats alerts as regards new Voicemails, Missed Calls, Emails and SMS between two different headings on the Today Screen (i.e. your mailbox address heading and the "Messages" heading).
Can one control what is listed under what heading, to free up some screen space and avoid duplication?
Thanks

go into your call log and tell it you don't want to show in messages.
is that what you meant?

Thank you for your reply.
The problem is more that email notifications appear twice: Once under the Today Screen heading that comprises the email address and once under the "Messages" heading.
It would be great if I could just have them appearing under the "Mesages" heading.
Regards
Nick

can you hide the email list? I have the different email boxes but hide them to just use the one on the main screen. I've not noticed this with the today themes so much because the filtered mailboxes are on apps screen instead of the homepage. with some of the other themes it becomes more of a problem for me. or are you using pocketday or something else? in which case, I'm no help at all.

Thanks for yur advice - I'm not too sure what "pocket day" is (if its theme, its not listed on my UK 02 8100).
All I'm trying to do is to get all the messages (email, SMS. MMS and voicemail) to be alerted under one "Messages" heading.
Thanks

Different themes organize messages alerts differently. Try using a different one.

PocketDay is a third party application that has a summary screen showing your calendar, calls, tasks, etc. It is very customizable. I tried it for a week and didn't think it was worth the money. I prefer the Vodaphone theme that comes with the O2 OS. It doesn't show you nearly the info PocketDay does and you can't customize it, but I like the simplicity of it.
