Blackberry Email Tips and Tricks
Here are a few handy shortcuts for Blackberry email that most Blackberry owners just won’t be able to live without.
1. Mark All Messages As Read/Opened: New Blackberry owners will undoubtedly find themselves in love with the email capabilities of their new toy, but will wonder why there’s no obvious way to mark all email messages as read. I usually get a couple hundred email messages each day, and it gets very time consuming and annoying having to open each email message so that it gets marked as read/opened on my Blackberry Curve. Here’s how to mark all email messages as read in one easy step: just select the top-most date in your main email folder, press the menu button, and choose the “Mark Prior Opened” option. All of your email messages will be marked as opened, taking your message counter back down to zero (perfect for obsessive-compulsive guys like me who just have to keep track of new messages vs read/opened messages). You can also select any previous day in your email inbox, in which case choosing the “Mark Prior Opened” menu option will only mark all messages previous to that day (including messages from that day).
2. Delete All Messages: As email messages pile up in your inbox faster than you can individually delete them, you’ll probably start looking for an option that will delete all email messages from your Blackberry. Select the top-most day in your email inbox, press the menu button, and choose the “Delete Prior” option to immediately remove all email messages from your Blackberry email inbox. You can also select a prior day in your inbox, and only messages prior to and including that day will be deleted. Be careful with this one though. It’s a very handy option that keeps your email inbox under control, but there’s no “Undo” feature, so deleting email messages is a permanent operation that happens immediately.
3. Move to the Top: When you get an email message and you open your Blackberry inbox, you’ll find yourself at the first unopened email message. That’s fine if you only have a few messages waiting to be read, but if you want to pop up to the top of the list to view the most recent message then here’s a handy shortcut. Press the “T” key to move to the top of your email inbox, or press the “B” key to move back to the end. With these shortcuts in mind, you can quickly move to the top of your inbox and mark all messages as read with just a couple button presses – putting you back in control of your Blackberry email!
