The Messages folder will always display all messages. There is no way to change this. However, you should have three inboxes: Messages (global display of all messages), Yahoo (shows only Yahoo messages), and Desktop (shows only BES messages). Hide the messages folder, and show the Yahoo and Desktop folders, and you have the setup you want. If you do this, however, you will need to enable separate inboxes for e-mail and SMS messages.

Desktop? Never seen that, unless it is a function of the Bold OS. I have 4.6 running on an 8220. I have never seen a Desktop folder.

All E-Mail messages go to the Messages folder. No way to modify that. SMS can go to a different folder, but all e-mail messages go to the Messages folder.

It's a BES feature, starting with BES 4.1.5.
BlackBerry Search Results

It's not enabled by default, but the BES admin can enable it globally for all BES users.
In my opinion, it's an unpolished feature.

My main issue with it is that you can't name the icon anything other than 'Desktop'.

Really? It's a BES thing.

You can display individual inboxes, though, and hide the Messages folder, which sounds like what the OP wants.

EDIT: In the time it took me to write this, I see that I missed an entire conversation on "Desktop." So... never mind what I said above!

If you have access to the BES Admin account, wouldn't that effectively make you the BES admin?

I'm not sure why your network admin would need to get involved with a BES upgrade.
