Now that my Pre 3 seems to have 'settled down' nicely..
I am, noticing a 'quirk' with the email..
I have my pre3 set up with 3 email accounts...
Two of them are web accounts, being: an msn.com account & a Gmail account.
The third is a Pop3 account for my company.
When emails are intercepted by the two web accounts, i get the notification sound, the little gesture area blinks, and the In-boxes SHOW a number on the right hand side showing the number of emails received..
And crucially STAY like this until i go into the inbox, AND either read the email, or mark it as read. - Just going into the inbox, and NOT reading the mail KEEPS the number showing by the inbox correctly.
- In Other Words. They are working Perfectly & correctly!
NOTE: I do NOT have email mega mix patch installed...
With the domain (pop) based account, something strange is going on...
Upon receiving an initial test email (or just receiving one normally), the alert will sound, the gesture area will blink, and a number will appear to the right of the Inbox..
However, WITHOUT me going into the inbox, or actually touching the phone, or opening the email in any way,
the number DISAPPEARS all by itself after approx 10 secs... When i then go in the inbox, the email IS still there, but NOT Bold, thus meaning it has been flagged as 'read', automatically, without my intervention!!!?
Even Stranger... When i send a second test email,... The phone shows NO notifications of receipt what so ever, NO sound, NO blinking gesture, and NO number by the inbox. However when I go into the inbox, the new email(s) IS THERE, but not bold thus meaning it has been flagged as read by webOS immediately!?
- Going into the settings, ALL notifications are switched on..
If i reboot the phone, the notification process works again for the FIRST new received test email, If however i leave the email unread, and send another test email, NO notifications are received... The (1) counter by the inbox, DISAPPEARS without my intervention, then when i go into the inbox, the SECOND new email HAS been received, but not only marks itself as read, it ALSO marks the first one that WAS showing 'unread', as 'read' as well... - Thus rebooting the phone is not a fix.
- Whilst it's not a 'disaster', as the emails ARE being received.. The fact that it is not making any arrival notifications, & marking as 'read' automatically, is clearly some kind of 'bug' perhaps?, but might make me miss emails that need to be read by Hours potentially, if the phone is out of site/out of mind...
Any thoughts on WHY this is happening?
