    I love BlackBerry e-mail. I've used other devices and to be honest, I actually left BB a few years back only to come back running. Largely because of the e-mail. Not only does it push ALL e-mail, but how it handles info and all the shortcuts.

    I tought I knew all the stuff I could possibly want on it by now. However, yesterday, while reviewing my first of ten e-mails, I accidentally swipped the screen from right to left. I noticed something new (at least new to me), the screen went to the next e-mail.

    I was surprised. I did not need to exit the current and click on the next e-mail. I jsut swipped and went to the next one!

    Oh, yeah. I love my BlackBerry even more now. I get about 50-60 e-mails a day and about 5 of them are important, 10 are somewhat interesting, and the rest are scan and delete. This feature is awesome.

    Am I the last person that did not know this or is this kinda new?

    been there for several years on the touchscreen devices atleast. No sure if it works with a trackball or pad

    It was introduced with os6.

    Yes it does work with a trackpad swipe.

    I'm using the 9900 and I figured this trick out by accident as well. However even with the trick my fingers are used to tapping the back button and heading down to the next email. Very useful nevertheless

    It is indeed great. You have been a bit behind.
    It actually works on BBM and texts as well.

    You have to turn it on. Message options -> message display and actions -> swipe between messages.

    Don't have the option to "swipe between messages" in "message display and actions" on OS6 668. It just ain't there.

    This is a horrible feature that I wish I could disable. When I try to scroll to the side to view pictures in an email, it gets to the end of the picture then warps to the next email... Forcing me to start over again by backing up, clicking on the correct email, and scrolling all the way back down to where I left off. Grrr

    If you press N for next and P for Previous on your keyboard you can move between emails in the same fashion


    I actually find this to be fare faster than the swiping method when handling emails because my fingers are on the keyboard I can move through my morning emails like so

    N, SPACE, SPACE, SPACE, T, R(or L) repeat through each one,

    the touchscreen takes all those slick navigation features away for a couple of swipes.
