All of a sudden I have a Desktop icon on my home screen. It is a little envelope (just like the mail icon) but has a little blue world globe overlay on the envelope. I usually hide all the icons I don't use as soon as I get a new bb so maybe it was something I hid a long time ago. It seemed to appear after I installed Vlingo.
What is the difference between the desktop and the mail icon? The mail icon shows a different number in the ( )'s vs. the desktop icon when you roll over it which I figured was unread emails? Just wondering were it came from and whether it is useful and why it would show a different number of messages?
The 'Messages' folder is a catch all that will show you all emails and messages. The icon with an envelope and a globe is specific to one email account. Each email account that you setup will have its own icon in addition to the 'messages' icon that is already there.
Thanks for the info! I have mailstreet and I do remember they had the servers down here recently for an update...bet you are right. If I am only getting email from my exchange account, which is better to use....mail or desktop?
