    Is there any app that allows you to quickly see the lastest two or three emails from each of your accounts without having to go into each of your individual account inbox's?

    Alternatively, is there any way to make a home screen icon for your email inbox?

    The problem I'm trying to solve is that I regularly get email on my personal account and my exchange work account and from the home screen I can only see one message counter for both... thus I can't tell without clicking on it, which account has mail and if they both do I need to select the account, select the inbox, read the mail, then back out twice and repeat the process for the other account. It's just a lot of navigation to read a couple of messages.

    Finally, if anyone's listening, an alternate home screen that lists the next couple of appointments as well as the message count for your various inboxes along with the top one or two message subjects would be an ideal home screen replacement for a corporate user. The lovely home screen icons are great but not all that useful for someone who needs to know where their next meeting is, etc.

    pageonce does that and a million other things. I have it set up so i can see the email accounts that i dont have pulled to my phone. So for instance, i have an emaila ccount i ONLY use for ebay and paypal. I dont really need it set up in my iphone as a mail account, so i added it to my pageonce to see if anything interesting pops up and someone asked me a question about a selling item, or people sending me tracking info,.

    you can also set it up to see bank accounts last few transactions, ultility bills, credit card bills, ANYTHING

    This looks like a good app, but I would like something that rolls up the accounts already on the iphone, ideally with my upcoming appointments. Just like the "Today" screen on Windows Mobile devices.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    i have to take by my suggestion for pageonce. It shows you some feed and newest things on your acounts, but it doesnt LINK to the accounts. Their support is HORRIBLE and they dont return ANY emails or even answer questions on their OWN FORUM!
