    I have a gmail account and all is fine. I am expecting a few emails from Ebay that I use my Verizon.net email. So I went on my computer into BIS and setup and new Verizon email account, and it works fine. My question is why did it make a icon on my BB 8330 with a "Y" on it? It looks like the icon my friend has for his Yahoo email? It isnt a big deal I was just curious. All is working fine.

    No Yahoo installed, I will go to BIS and delete and setup the Verizon email again and see what happens. I will post outcome.

    OK, went into BIS and deleted and setup again and got the Yahoo mail icon. I then sent service books to see if it would change and it didnt. Think it might be different if I set it up from my VZW BB 8330 not BIS?

    Ok, went to email setup on my BB and deleted verizon email and then setup again from the BB and still get the Yahoo icon. No big deal.

    When I click on the Yahoo mail icon it opens up my Verizon email.

    I have the Yahoo icon on my Verizon mail, too. I hadn't pursued getting rid of it because it doesn't really seem to matter. I do have Yahoo Messenger installed, and assumed there was some sort of conflict or default setting at work.

    That is because Verizon partnered up with Yahoo to provide email services.
