thanks guys, but that was really just for the pre aku2.3 versions (treos). the window mobile 6 version doesn't need all the files in the palm messaging folder. i will post the wm6 version here in this section for all us mogul users. it may confuse some to see the wrong tutoral. actually i have two versions. one that give email as the softkey and puts threaded sms at the messaging hard key and the other is the oppsite. sms softkey and email hard key. i'll post new thread to make it easier.
