    I am not sure what you are talking about. Take a screenshot please.

    At the top right of the "iPhone" icon or the top right of the screen (by the battery indicator)?

    Can you post a screenshot? Press and hold the lock switch on the top, then press the home button and let go of both -- the screen should flash white and you should have a screenshot in your camera roll. Upload the image here or elsewhere and link it so we can see.

    wondering about this too because i saw a screenshot somewhere that had a mail icon in the upper right hand corner, wanted to know if it was an option to turn it on when you got mail or something like that.

    press the home button and the sleep button at the same time, and then sync your phone with your computer, and transfer the photos to your computer and upload it.

    funny that your phone app doesn't show any messages.
    Are you on an unlocked iPhone?

    Exactly. Or when it is locked.

    That's either "Notifiy" from Cydia or Intelliscreen doing that.

    You should be able to uninstall them.

    Do you think it's possible that one of your JB apps updated and may have added that color to your mailbox? Or, maybe you switched your theme and that's one of the add on's to the package...

    As was said above, that's either StatusNotifier or Intelliscreen and the icon means that you have an unread email.
