    Hi guys

    Im in trouble

    My integrated/linked mailbox tile pins itself to my home screen at rebooting
    I delete it each time and as soon as i reboot its back
    I don't want to keep it on my home screen because i believe it facilitates a quick draining battery

    the phone is just 2 days old

    I noticed this activity after downloading Here Drive by the way

    Go to settings / email & accounts and try to delete the mailbox by holding down the account in question. You wont be able to delete the Microsoft Hotmail account if that's the one you are referring to as its needed by the OS and will always be there but you should be able to delete its tile from the main screen.

    btw Why are you rebooting so much, it should be a rare event with WP ?

    hi Gmotagi

    i the phone rebooted while i was making a language change (keyboard)
    i noticed that the tile had come back even after id deleted it
    i found it strange so i deleted it again and rebooted again just out of curiosity
    and the bloody tile was back!

    i did as you said, unlinked the inboxes
    gmail and yahoo tiles attached themselves to the screen this time
    deleted/unpinned them
    nothing come back
    nothing came back
    so linked the inboxes again
    it came back again!

    so il have to keep them separated till the bug is fixed

    but thanks a lot

    If you don't want the mail you can just go into the account settings (by tapping on the account under email+accounts) and uncheck the email box. However, the live tiles do not add to the battery drain in any way, as the email updates can happen behind the scenes when the phone is locked.
