I'm having a minor issue that I can not seem to figure out.

I'm using "push" e-mail. When new e-mails arrive I'm seeing the left hand soft key change from "sms" to "notification." The only way I can see to return the key back to sms is to clear the notification.

I do not need the key to change nor do I want it to. I use Phone Alarm so I'm already aware when new e-mails arrive.

Does anyone know how to stop that notification key from appearing? I do not have any notifications set for new e-mails under "sounds and notifications."
