    Came from blackberry, have questions! Boy is this thing different!

    o.k. so I made the switch! Here are a couple of my questions.. First, none of the icons themselves will show I have an email correct, It's only that tray on the top?

    Second, facebook can only pull at the shortest interval of 30 minutes??

    Next is there a way to have multiple icons for your multiple email accounts (I have (2) gmails and (2) yahoo's and I was wondering if I could bet (4) individual icons...

    When I pull up the tab full of more apps and such, How can I organize that (ie move things around or delete things I don't need?)

    Thats all I can think of, other than being SERIOUSLY confused I think I like it! Thanks in advance!

    k9 mail

    For mail other than Gmail, do yourself a favor and do t waste your time with the factory mail app. It wont delete messages from the server properly and the messages will keep coming back. It had considering returning my Droid. Finding k-9 mail in the market solved all my issues with mail. Doesn't give multiple icons but does keep them separated in folders. You will love the Droid. Blackberry is the king of email but this thing does everything that the blackberry didn't.

    I would suggest considering having all your email accounts forwarded to your gmail and receiving your email that way. I've never used K9 before and it may work just fine but you can set up in your gmail settings under the accounts tab to have these emails forwarded. You can choose to leave a copy in your own email's box or have it simply deleted upon forwarding. Also you can respond to mail received in the same account it was received in through gmail.

    Just another option to look at, if you'd like.

    Yup. That's the notification bar. That's where you'll find all notifications.

    IIRC you can make shortcuts (longpress on the home screen) to each email account you have set up with the stock apps. However, you might not want to setup each email account directly -- see the other posts above that recommend other solutions. It really just depends on where your priorities lie (i.e. is it most important that you have separate icons on your home screen?).

    The app drawer is all your apps. You don't organize it. You can, however, organize your home screen. IIRC you can delete some of the delivered apps if you root but that's not really worth getting into at this point.

    Just don't assume that anything works the way it did on your BB. If you find that that it seems that something is missing or isn't quite right then don't overlook apps as potential solutions. Definitely spend time reading the forums here as they're full of very useful info.

    I'm not sure, but I think he was asking about different icons for each account in the status bar. I gave up on the mail app as well. I have all three of my accounts in the gmail app and it works really well. I wouldn't mind separate notification icons as well. I believe you can set it for different audio notifications but haven't found a way to do different icons.

    I came from a blackberry as well and this is a vast improvement. I've heard before that it was the king of email, but it never handled HTML messages well. I have no regrets at all about the Droid.

    another organization tool to consider is using folders. if you long-press and blank part on one of your home screens, you will have the option of creating folders. name them whatever you want and drag-n-drop app icons into them.
