Default 8830 - color coded SMS and email messages!

Please Login to Remove!

How on EARTH did I turn this feature on??? Unbelievable. Every message has diagonal stripes on it making it very hard to read or compose a text message or an email message.

how do I turn this off?

Thanks !

This is a feature only available to those 8830's that are connected to an Enterprise Server to receive email messages.

You goto Options>Security Options> General Settings - there you can turn off or on colored message feature to distinguish between work emails or personal emails, and SMS, etc.

Thanks

I actually use the yellow for my BES work email. That way I know when I'm sending from the right address. The yellow isn't too intrusive.

wow - thanks dkowal/John Clark - I was unfamiliar with this feature. I've definitely sent emails from the wrong address before and it just gets confusing. Thanks for the help!

Default RE: Color codes

Yellow? Wow, I've got to give that color a try. The darker color settings were just too ugly for me and non-functional.

Glad I could be of assistance in pointing this out.

Cheers.

Default thanks for posting this question / solution . . .

I had the same problem. somehow I set this in my options for the color blue, then found the annoying dark diagonal lines polluting my e-mails and my sms messages. Then I could not remember how I had managed to do this to myself.

So thank you for posting this - you saved me hours of potential aggravation.

Haha, I enabled this feature which I thought would just color code the message text but instead I got the diagonal lines which I thought were so ugly. I then decided I could just live without knowing where my email came from.

Is there a way to make them show different font colors in the Messages inbox?
