    I've got a couple of questions about the default Messages app. I'm using the Universal Inbox, and I've got several email accounts set up - two Exchange and one IMAP.

    Question 1: I would like to be able to set notifications based on the account. For example, I want alerts when I receive email in the Exchange accounts, but I would like to not recieve an alert on new mail in the IMAP account. I think I was able to do this with my Captivate, but can't with the Atrix. For now, I've got the IMAP account in K-9. Any way to do this with the default mail app?

    Question 2: On the captivate I could sort messages so that all unread messages were at the top. Any way to do that with the default mail app on the Atrix?

    To answer your first question:

    You'll need to open each account separately(not using the universal) and then via the setting within that account, change your notifications

    I've never carried a captivate so I'm not entirely sure how to do what you are attempting to do. I just checked my Atrix and I cannot find any way to sort by unread.

    Thanks, Jedii. Do I do that in the Messaging app - where I see the icon for Universal Inbox and icons for each individual email account? I tried there and setting it for one seemed to change it for all.
