Finally a BlackBerry Unread Messages View

After being a hard core BlackBerry user for easily over five years, I finally today found what I have been wanting since day one: a BlackBerry Unread Message view that would closely mimic Outlook’s Unread Mail Search Folder.

Because of BlackBerry Enterprise integration with Microsoft Exchange, I enjoy the power of jumping between Outlook and BlackBerry to work my communications in my professional and personal life.  Long ago, I gave up on filing Outlook Email Messages and instead used the Read/Unread mail toggle as my mechanism to manage mail.  I only mark a message as read if I am done with it.   I keep messages as unread when I need to follow up.  I toggle the flag as necessary to keep under control.

I do the same thing on my BlackBerry.¬† However, until today, I thought I had to hit “b” to go to the bottom and then hit “u” to scroll up to the next unread message.

I found this post, Saved Searches – Find Unread Messages, and it unlocked the mystery of this missing feature.¬†¬† You can read the post but bottom-line, use¬†Message Search¬†to create a Saved Search that is assigned to an Alt-Key combination.¬† While the article suggests using Alt-U, I disagree because Alt-U is my toggle/untoggle flag while reading a message.¬† I chose Alt-T but anything will work if it doesn’t conflict with an existing short-cut key combination.

My hope is that this just helped you become that much more productive.  If you have any obsure BlackBerry tips, please share.
