Unread message Toasts

I have 2 email accounds syncing down to my Treo 700wx. I get a fair bit of email that I don't read but keep for reference if I need it. The annoying bit is I keep getting notifications/toasts about xx unread email messages for both accounts. Its freaking annoying because I get toasts for both accounts. I can't find anyway to stop these messages. All I really care about is when a new message comes in. I'll look at it if I want, or ignore it, leaving it unread. I really don't want to go though and mark each message as read. If it comes in and I don't care about it, I'd like to be able to just dismiss the toast and go on about my business. Does anyone have any idea what generates this message or maybe how to disable it? It seems to be generated whenever it checks for new mail. If there was no mail, it'll tell me how many unread messages I have. I'd rather it just not tell me anything at all... I can't find anything about it anywhere, though.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know what you mean about toasts. However, the 700wx should notify you every time a new message is received, usually most people complain that there no repeating alarms and use apps like PhoneAlarm to have this ability.

My recommendation is to search the Software forum and download the Delete/Mark All As Read CAB. This application will add 2 options to your Menu in POutlook, delete all and mark all as read... this way you can mark all the messages as read without having to click one by one.

Attached is the notification I'm talking about. For my GMail account, I pretty much read everything as it comes in, but for my work account, I get a lot of email. and I don't want to read it all because some of it only makes sense from within our email client (we use lotus notes and the sync is done using pylon anywhere). So there's some that I'd like to leave as unread on the device so that when I get to my desk, they'll still show up as unread.

I'm thinking there's no way around this, though. Thanks for your suggestions. I'll look into the mark all as read thing.

toast = the perfect name for those white notification popups - why hasn't someone come up w/ this before?!?

Oh, and I think if you have your work e-mail sync into a sub-folder, that may help...

It's not something he came up with ... It's been around since MSN started throwing those IM alerts in those white windows.
