Default New Mail Notification - Yahoo

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

When I get a new e-mail notification from Yahoo on my BB8800, the notification appears by my "default" email message icon but does not appear above the Yahoo icon. Can this be fixed?

Also, is there some way to have the e-mail notifications ONLY appear above the e-mail icon that it pertains to and not the default icon? I prefer my default icon to only show e-mail messages from my BES account.

Thanks,
Scott

sdgeiger, in your Yahoo message folder, Options > General Options > Display New Message Indicator = YES. Save.

It was already set it YES, but I still don't get the message indicator.

Default try this...

I had the same problem and foud it so frustrating I thought I'd share the answer I eventually got to...

Go into the email account folder (i.e. your desk top envelope icon for that account)
Go to Options
Go to General Options
Go to SMS and Email in boxes
Set to "Combined" if you want both to highlight new messages and "Separate" if you want only one.

BTW - make sure display new message indicator is set to "Yes"

if other probs get you network to drop you a new set of service books.

I did ask for a new set of service books on this but unfortunately they came through at almost exactly the same time that I made the changes outlined above so I can't be 100% sure whether it was the Combined/Separate option or the service book; I suspect the former.

This doesn't address the issue of the message indicator not appearing next to the Yahoo mail icon. I am having the same issue as the original poster above.

Is there any solution?

Hello,

Has anyone come to a resolution for this? I uninstalled Yahoo! mail in July, just reinstalled it in hopes the problem was resolved, but it has not been. This is my second BB8800, so I know it isn't a problem with this specific device, but perhaps a problem with all BB's? I can't believe only a few people are complaining about this.

I just don't think that Yahoo! has an indicator for their little icon... I have setup, deleted and re-setup Yahoo! so many times and have never seen an indicator once.

Been having similar problems with e-mail mine has been being marked read without opening. Even talked to high level tech at Verizon. Here's what I did that seemed to cure my problems.

Remove all the add ins themes, etc that you don't really need. You can re-install later. Do a cold boot. Back up your data. Do a Wipe and blow everything away. It will reboot to your operating system. Reinstall the backed up data.

So far I'm working OK after doing that.

I have the same issue on the 8830 but on the pearl that I had for one week, it worked. It was not working since I loaded.

I saw the other option to do all of the reboot restore and all of that, I did that with the upgrade of my phone and it still does not work.

I guess I will have to live with this issue...
