Blackberry newbie, Treo oldie.

When viewing email, is there a way to default the "From" field so it always displays the actual email address and not the name?

I'm afraid that the limited Option set (in Messages click to select Options) does not include that functionality. You have to move your cursor to the address in the email then click to Show Address each time.

You can also do this...
Take the cursor to the email address field and then press the key 'Q'. This will show you the email address and not the name.
One more reason for not using the wheel!!
