You can "seperate" the email and SMS message into different places. Go to Message, Options, General Options, and you should see "SMS and Email Inbox". Use Seperate and you will have a seperate icon in your home screen.

In your home screen, to move icon, highlight it, then click the "menu" (blackberry logo, next to the call button), and you can select "move". then just move with the trackball and place.

BTW, you can also go to your Profile, and change how SMS or EMail alert you by TONE, VIBRATE, or nothing as well.

And then hide your email specific icon. It is not needed.
