    Yahoo Email Icon for AT&T.net POP3 Acct?

    My business partner and his wife both got Tours from Verizon recently (I've had my tour since they first came out). When we did the email setup (their email is thru AT&T as ISP--address is xxx@att.net), the account set up worked just fine and and went very smoothly, but the email icon on the home screen is a Yahoo icon. This happened on both Tours.

    I don't believe either of them has set up a xxx@vzw.blackberry.net email account, and both are running .140.

    Is there a way to change the email icon to the 'envelope with globe' instead of the Yahoo item?

    Dunno. I was wondering if perhaps Verizon had this set up as a deal with Yahoo. Very strange. I did my partner's phone first, and thought I might have selected the Yahoo option my mistake. Sooo, when I set up his wife's Tour, I was very careful--and same thing.

    thank you mike. TBCPN, because their ISP is ATT and ATT and yahoo are now one then it will probably always be the yahoo symbol as that is the ISP and its pushed to the phone this way
