Default How best to handle 2 email accounts?

Please Login to Remove!

I am completely new to Blackberries and have just been given a 8700f as a work tool.

It connects to our work Outlook exchange system but today I wondered what would happen if I added my private POP mail account.

Surprisingly it was really easy and it works well.. Now I get incoming messages both from my work address and my home into my 'message' application. When it comes to sending a mail, I can choose to send it from either address so it works as well, if not better than I expected.

Since I did this, i had to reboot my BB and when it was done, I found that I had 2 'Message' applications.. One is the original, the other is specifically for my POP account.

Now this is REALLY good, as the 2 mail systems will be kept seperate. However, i sound found that this was not the case! Now I get my POP mail in the new application.. But ALL (both my work and private) mail to the other.

Ideally, i would still like to have the 2 icons, but one for my exchange mail.. The other for my POP.

Is there any way to do this? Or do I just have to live with the fact that both mailboxes are combined?

Sorry. I did a search but had too many hits. I never thought of looking at the FAQs.

I think I need to have a good read, as there are bound to be other questions covered off.

Many thanks
