Email showing in two places
I have an corporate blackberry. Today I added my personal msn email account.

Now when I receive emails on the msn account, the emails appear in the "mail" box and in the msn box.

Is there a way to make the email to show only under the globe icon "msn account box", and not on the "mail" box icon?

I would like to keep the emails separate, corporate and personal.

Any help with this is appreciated.

The "message" folder is so that you can have all your email accounts linked to one, what I do is hide all my email accounts in a folder and use the message folder to check them all. I'm not sure how you could fix this problem you are having.

The messages icon will get all incoming messages. nothing you can do about that. however you can separate your SMS from it then hide it. Then use SMS icon for SMS messages and your msn icon for your MSN email. However you dont have access anymore to your BES work email. This is where the 2 options below come into play.

1. Empower your BlackBerry with HTML Email Viewer and BES MailBox
Costs $20 one time fee, but will give you a separate BESmail icon for your work email. Will only happen for you, noone else on the BES unless they also purchase the program.

2. View Document
You will need to get your I.T. department to implement this feature (its free) and you will get a separate BES icon as well. This one however will happen to everyone on the BES. If anyone else does not like this feature and prefer the messages icon approach, they can simply just hide the BES mail icon.

Hope this helps

Keep in mind, there is nothing personal or private on a BB connected to BES. If the company wants to track your activity and see what you are doing, always assume they can and will. They may seem like the mail is being kept separate, but on the company side, it probably isn't.
