Default SMS notifications for every email

Please Login to Remove!

Every single Email I get, I receive a text message notifying me I have new mail - even though the mail application itself alerts me at the exact same time, so I have 2 alerts for the same message. It's getting annoying and I'm wondering how to fix it. Thanks.

Are you sure you're getting text messages? What's the icon for these messages?

It sounds like you might be referring to the fact that Messages receives all email. If that's the case you're not getting 2 separate messages. The messages under your email icon and Messages are just "views" of the same email.

Some clarification is really needed to assist you. It is entirely possible that you're getting SMS notifications of new email. If that's the case then you need to turn off the SMS notifications from the source (it won't be the BB itself).
