Default Dont want BBY to open email when taken from holster....

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to do that?

I'm afraid its going to open something bad, like a spam, or an unwanted attachment....

Thanks in advance.

Ooh - that would be bad.

1) Attachments NEVER open unless you request it
2) Wait around 10 seconds AFTER the BlackBerry alerts you before removing it from the holster.

There is no way to control (or prevent) the BB from oopening up an e-mail when it is removed form the holster.

Nothing to fear (except fear itself, of course) already pointed out, the new email will not open after some number of seconds; but even if it does, just delete it if you have a mind to
