    How to: Customize BlackBerry Email Icons

    Hi every one, trying to keep my mind busy tonight, i found this great tutorial and decided to share what i found

    Just a little dissclaimer: try this at your own risk

    You'll need BBFileScout to do this.

    Make your Email Folder Accounts looks like this


    Customize Email Icons

    1. Determine your email’s UID in Options > Advanced Options > Service Book > Select the email you’d like to customize > Note the email’s UID



    2. Go into BBFileScout > SDCard> BlackBerry > Directory where you save the icon > Highlight an icon > Press BB menu > Select Store ‘icon.png’ on stack



    3. Go back to BBFileScout first screen and go into Store > Appdata > RIM > BDA > Icons > Create a directory and name it under your email’s UID > Copy the ‘icon.png’ into the directory > rename the icon to: 1-80-80 (Bold & Jave) 1-58-43 or 1-48-36 (83xx) 1-73-73 (Storm) -If you can’t find BDA and Icons directory, just create one



    4. Reboot your device for the changes to take effect Good Luck..


    Attached is a folder with some icons for you to use


    Email Icons.zip


    PS: thanks for the support everyone really appreciate it

    good stuff e.
    now this will only work if you use the email icon right? in other words i use a combined folder for emails and sms's. can we change that one as well or is it just the specific email folder icon?

    Jmu33 make sure you're replacing in the correct folder
    Store/app data/rim/dba/icons/your email/ rename the icons acording to your device.

    Cat this will work for the emails accounts only.

    jmu33, CICAL is your calendar that is associated with the emails you have. That would not be the one.
