    So I finally have to ask a question.

    I am trying to use just the HTC Email app for everything.
    I have 3 email accounts:
    1. Work
    2. Yahoo
    3. Gmail
    When I create a shortcut on the Home screen for either Gmail or Yahoo it does not let me name it. I get two shortcuts called:
    Peredroid1002@...
    Peredroid1002@...
    *Note not my real email addy
    (The dots represent the fade because the names are so long it won't fit)

    I can't even tell which is which because it only displays the first 10 characters or whatever.

    On my Moto Droid I could name them Yahooooo and Gmail.

    Is this not possible on my Dinc2?

    Could you share your solution with the rest of us?

    I am curious as to how you resolved it.

    My bad.
    The issue is when you first set it up it walks you through the wizard setup.
    That never specifically asks you to name the account. So it just names it by the email address.
    From your Inbox, you can rename it by simply going to MENU > SETTINGS > ACCOUNT SETTINGS. From there it gives you the option to rename the account.
