Default Auto e-mail open

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone.
I did some searching before posting, and couldn't find an answer.

I want to disable the feature that automatically opens my newly-received e-mail message, once I take my device out of the holster.

I simply want to see my message list instead, or whatever last screen I was in.

Any idea how can this be done?

Thanks

Mine doesn't auto email open (how I like it too) but I'm not sure what I did to make it that way. I can guess that it may have been a side effect of hiding the message icon from the home screen. I hit "m" to get to messages.

I've found that if I wait a few minutes before removing my 8700 from the holster (when the in-the-holster mode works), my newly-received e-mail does not auto open. Not a very good solution, I know. I'm still looking for the option to change it.

This can't be true. I tried your method, and I still get the auto-open. If you wait about 15-20 seconds before you take it out of the holster it will not auto-open, but I am pretty sure that is the only option.

Mine doesn't auto open mail either. I've not configured this, it never has done this. You must have changed something!

Hold on a second. Let's get this straight. Are you sayng that when you receive an email, and your 8700 is IN THE HOLSTER, and you take the 8700 out of your holster within 15 seconds, your inbox does NOT automatically open and show the email you just received? It has to - that's the only way the 8700 works, unless there is something I am missing. I have read other threads about this and everyone is in agreement - it is not changeable on the 8700. I think you either wait more than 15 seconds, or you are not using a holster with a sleeper function magnet in it.

I'm pretty sure it's a modifyable feature.

It may have come across as arrogance, but that's not what I intended - sorry. I just felt confident in this issue. Re-read my posts and see if you really think I am being arrogant.

Don't know if this is relevant, but I noticed with my old 7290 that if I left either my message-list screen on and/or a specific SMS showing to which I'd replied, an SMS reply opened automatically when I receive it. I'm not sure of the exact BB state that caused this, but I do know it happened numerous times because I'd notice a reply pop up and that message was already displayed.

This usually happened when I was driving, so I was inattentive to both the road and my BB (yeah, I'm bad). Can't say I've seen this on my 8700 yet, however...

Default But what is the solution

I have a user here that also has an 8700 that will not auto open messages when he takes the unit out of the holster. Our Wireless provider said it was a defective unit and sent a (brand new) replacement, but when it reloaded the settings (via our BES), the same problem is back.

For others who have had the problem; what Theme are you using and are there any programs you have downloaded to your BB (I am wondering if there is some kind of coding conflict??)

Thanks ....J

It is probably because the device does not go to sleep in the holster, I.e. defective holster or holster w/o a magnet.

Unhappy Good thought but...

Thanks for the reply. I thought that maybe it was how it was being handled or user interface issues also. So I borrowed his 8700 and used my holster to test different options and same results. (my 8700 works fine in and out of holster).

My suspicion is one of the few programs he has added on to his BB. He has added a few games, askmenow and googlemobile (all of which I have on my BB). The only difference is a weather icon on his BB. I was thinking about removing each program one at a time and testing that??

Any other ideas or suggestions... Thanks J

Red face But I want it to work...

Thanks LIV, I have seen both threads already and althought they don't want this to work, I do want it to work. Don't ask me how or why, but for this person, something in his BB settings or conflicting software he does not open messages when he takes the BB out of the holster. I have tested this with my sending a message and as soon as the BB vibrates, out of the holster it flys but still no open message.

If we manage to figure this out, then we could post it as a hack for those that don't want it. Trouble is what causes this????

Thanks ..... J

Thumbs up Found out why....

Hi all,
I said I would follow up when I found out what the cause was on this problem. After many support calls and loud complaints, we were sent a replacement unit and that resolved the problem. We finally determined that the old unit was defective by doing a simple test. We help the BB unit up and reversed the holster and ran the magnet by the bottom of the unit. Normally it will react as if it was in the holster and the screen will shutoff to save power. In this case the unit would never shutoff. One thing the user neglected to mention was that he was getting lousy battery life and was recharging the unit every day (hint, hint). Thanks to all who replied...

Still, there must be a default registry setting which opens the newly received email once the unit is taken out of the holster. Therefore, it's reasonable that a proper registry edit could be made to disallow this and simply open your Inbox list instead. That would certainly be my preference.
