    New hero has arrived, successfully unlocked - and loving it so far!

    However I have a couple of queries.

    I have set up my yahoo mail using the mail program, pop/smtp mail

    I have it to check every 15mins and it is great is there any way to stop mail showing up as "unread" if I have already read it.

    What I mean is, I get 1 email to my yahoo email address, read this email at work, dont delete it, but it displays as "read". Then 15 mins later I get a notification on my hero and have to click the email to stop it displaying as unread.

    Is there anyway to stop this?

    Also - is there a decent facebook wigit? I like Bloo but you cant reply to mail on there, and it doesnt seem to have a widget, any tips?

    oh and can anyone recommend the best app for finding the nearest pub, restaurant, etc and getting a quick review of them? I know you can just search google maps for "pub" and it'll give you a list of close by ones, and that Aloqa will give you reviews and show you the nearest pub etc, but when i use aloqa to give me directions it shows me car directions and doesnt let me choose walking directions

    is there another app?

    As far as i know there isn't a single facebook app/widget that lets you reply to private messages. What i do is have a shortcut on my homescreen that points to my facebook message inbox

    I think the app you already have (Bloo) is considered one of the best facebook apps and here the author mentions the inbox issue: Bloo

    Try places directory, not a bad free app.

    I don't think so. It's happening because you're using POP - it treats any emails it hasn't downloaded yet as "new" email, whether you've read it elsewhere or not.

    The solution would be to use IMAP - although I don't know if Yahoo offers that.

    If it doesn't...well the solution to that is use Gmail ;)
