Hi all,

I've noticed that emails that contain HTML formatting don't seem to work at all on the BB. Am I missing something or will these not work? Apologies if covered elsewhere.

Cheers all!

Not viewing HTML formatting in emails is actually one of the advantages of a Blackberry. Some spam have images (even hidden) that download upon email opening. The communication from your email address with the website tells them that email address is active. Then the spam starts really flowing...

All too true....that is also why you never, ever give out your @______blackberry.net email address to anyone, ever.
