Hi Everyone, I've noticed a bug in the default mail app since jailbreaking. Not sure if anyone else has noticed. After a certain time period, the mail app always seems to revert back to the global inbox view. For example, I have 2 different email addresses, when I open the mail app and go into one of them (gmail for example) then go into the inbox. Then I lock the iphone and check maybe 10 minutes later. When I come back in I will be in the global inbox, not the gmail inbox. I will have to go backwards, choose the gmail account, then inbox again. This is very frustrating and definitely started after jailbreaking. Any thoughts on how to fix / what could be causing this? Also curious if everyone else is experiencing (not sure of the timeframe for it to revert back to global inbox, it's not instantaneous but definitely happens every time). Thanks.

I have seen it. It wants to default to my gmail account instead of my work account.

Same problem here. Always defaults to my main email address. And about 1 out of 10 times I open email app to check emails the app will crash.

Trying figure out if it's a certain app that I installed or if this is a jailbreak bug.

Anyone had this problem and fixed it or know the cause?

Ok so seems like everyone has this bug once jailbroken, anyone smarter than us out there that knows why or potentially how to fix? Thanks.

I do not think this will help. Mine defaults to my second email account.

*edit*

Nevermind, it is my first Email account. I am an idiot.

i'll tell you what didnt work ;)
my accounts are like this
yahoo
gmail

i want gmail to open by default... but it keeps opening yahoo right away instead...

so i removed yahoo, and added it back in, figuring it would go to the bottom, and it did not...

i really dont want to go through the hassle of turning off google sync and setting the phone back up again to move it up...
