    Hello all,

    When you open a WEB page in an e-mail....how do you get back to your e-mail list without hitting the "home" button, then the e-mail Icon??

    Seems like it should be simple but can't get there....Thanks...Ken

    Double tap the Home button then hit the Mail icon in the multi-task bar. That way the app opens in exactly the same 'state' as you left it.

    Thanks Tim, thats pretty much what I'm doing now. Trying to get away from that. Just want to go "right back" to the e-mail list but can't do it directly.....Ken

    OK - there is no other way. Either you hit the Home button once and then hit the Mail icon - or you go via the multi-task bar.

    If you can hang in there for a few more days, iOS5 is coming with the gestures we first saw with iOS3 beta (think it was 3 ... may have been 4). Regardless - with the gestures, after you have finished reading a web page, you simply do a 4/5-finger swipe of the screen and it'll bring you back to the Mail app. Very handy ... and very time-saving.

    Yeah, I know, there's a lot of "wait for iOS 5" stuff. But, this one will be cool, honest! :D
