    Does anyone know how to stop the mail screen from refreshing so often. I am missing so many emails because it marks them as read somehow and quite often. I don't realize I have a new mail because the little blue dot is gone. Has anyone experienced this problem?

    Part of what I think is the problem is that when I am done reading email, the cursor has to be on something so something is highlighted without marking is as read just because its in an idle position. Then when the mail screen refreshes, it marks the place where my cursor was sitting as "read". Which I haven't read so I miss the email. Does this make sense?
