    Default Single Account Mailboxes Shortcuts?

    Hi All,

    I just picked up a Photon 4G, replacing my previous Epic 4G.

    I cannot seem to find a way to put a shortcut on my home screen for one single mailbox, like I could do with my Epic. Is that not possible on the Photon?

    For example, I have a Yahoo email account and Work email account. I want to place a shortcut for each seperate accounts on my home screen.

    Help!

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Use Yahoo! Mail App and it will have its own icon. I did it for a while but decided to go back to the integrated "factory" mail.

    If you use K9 mail, you can link each account separately on your home screen.

    I just went with the unified Messages icon and then select from there. Another step, but not bad all in all.

    I have the same problem. I have researched and tried everything. This feature isn't supported nor can it be recreated with any viable workarounds for Jelly Bean 4.3.
    Join the fight! Sign my petition at change dot org to get Google developers to fix this. It may be your best hope!

    I have an icon for k9, and it pulls in mail from all my accounts.

    And I don't think google will be doing much more development on this phone.

    Yea...
    Motorola pulled the plug on releasing ice cream sandwich to the Photon at the last moment!
    That's why I'm not buying anything else from Motorola, the hell with them!
