Checking your Mail inbox

Checking your Mail inbox

When you open the Mail app, it displays the inbox of one of your email accounts that you’ve set up on HTC Rhyme.

To switch between email accounts, tap the bar that shows the current email account, and then tap another account.

Viewing the unified inbox of all your email accounts

You can view email messages from all your accounts just in one place without having to switch to different accounts.

Just tap the bar that shows the current email account, and then tap All accounts. Email messages are color coded so you can easily distinguish which email accounts they belong to.
Note: Up to 15 email accounts can be shown in the unified inbox.

Switching between different views of your inbox

If you have lots of email messages, it may take you some time to browse through the long list and find a single email or related email messages. Use the tabs of the Mail app to sort your emails into different categories.
To skim through your email messages easier, tap one of the following tabs to change the view of your inbox:


Displays email messages as individual items.


Displays email messages as conversations, grouped according to the subject line. Tap a subject in the list to show the email conversation.


Displays all email messages from a contact group. To choose which contact group to display, press MENU , tap View, and then select a group.


Displays unread messages.

Marked (Exchange ActiveSync only)

Displays all flagged messages.

Invites or Meeting invitations (Exchange ActiveSync only)

Displays all messages that have attachments.

Note: Can't see the tab that you want? Press and hold a tab and wait for the screen to show the other tabs. You can tap and hold a tab, and then drag it to where you want it.

Refreshing an email account

Whatever your automatic synchronization settings are, you can also synchronize your sent and received emails manually at any time.

  • While in the account you want to synchronize, press MENU , and then tap Refresh.
  • If you have several email accounts, you can refresh them all at the same time. Go to the All accounts inbox first. Then press MENU and tap Refresh.

Sorting email messages

You can sort email messages by date received, priority, subject, sender, or size.

On the inbox, press MENU , tap Sort, and select from the sorting options.

Quickly browsing your inbox

If you have a long list of email messages in your inbox, it may not be easy to browse the list and find an email that you want. You can quickly browse through your inbox by using finger gestures.
  1. Choose a sorting order for displaying your email messages.
  2. Press and hold two fingers on any email message, and then drag upward or downward without lifting your fingers. Your screen then jumps to the set of email messages based on your chosen sorting order.
