Default Email icon grayed with orange box

Please Login to Remove!

My blackberry has 4 email icons for messages, hotmail and two other email accounts. All the icons used to be the little slanted white envelope icon with the small circular blue ball in the right bottom corner Recently my hotmail icon changed after a battery pull.

It now looks like a non slanted light gray rectangular envelope with a little orange rectangular thing at the bottom center. This icon is not hidden. I have no idea why this icon changed. It doesn't affect any functionality but it's irritating when your phone does weird things.

Any idea what's going on? How do I get it back to the slanted bright white envelope icon? I have a Verizon curve. Thanks in advance.

You can't get back.
RIM have implemented a new icon for hotmail email on a BB.

@data 1025 Jeez, yes thats the new email icon I am seeing for Hotmail. I wish they would somehow inform users of these changes. Thanks MidnightDraven

I have observed another new strange icon. Shows in top bar and only when I open any message icon. It looks like a black circle with a diagonal arrow pointing down towards South West and some red thingy on the top right (north east). Used to have the digit 6 to its left and now has 9.

I installed Verizon's Backup Assistant and wonder if this icon has something to do with that.

Nope, its an App World update. You have 9 apps (or app world itself) that needs updating.

Midnight Draven thanks, you were right. Now why the heck wouldnt they just put a star on the BB Appworld icon? I think RIM has a lot to learn from Apple in terms of user friendly design
