Default Duplicate Icons/Emails

Please Login to Remove!

I just upgraded to 2.0 (We are behind with US Cellular). Now I have 3 message icons...the orginal titled "Messages" (the one I've always used), then one for each of the accounts I have my registered.

When I get a new email, it goes to my original and the new one that appeared when I upgraded. How can I fix this?

Thank you.

Unfortunatley, that is how BIS 2+ works. You will get new icons/folders for each email that you have setup and you will have the main default/main message folder.

Its not that you should be getting duplicate emaiils. When an email comes from one email account, it is filed in the message folder and the email folder for that account. You should only get a notification of one new email.

If you only want to use the main message folder, you can hide the new ones for the specific accounts. There is no way to stop messages from going to the main message folder.

Thank you so much...That is exactly what is happening. When I delete or compose an email, it shows up the same way in the main message folder. I'll just hide the one I don't use.

However, when I create a new message in the main message folder, it puts up "Default" in the "Sent Using". I've tried to find the default somewhere, but I can't. Under "Email Reconciliation" I put the email I want to use as the default, but it still doesn't come up everytime. Just kind of a pain in the rear to type it in everytime.

Again, thanks for taking the time to help me out.

"Default", I've found, is whatever message service you used last time to email that person.
