When you receive emails you will be notified on your main screen, Note Email icon 1 displays you have emails in one of your accounts as you can see Email icon 2 shows I have an email in my fourth account, if you select Icon 1 you will see all emails from all accounts however if you select Icon 4 (in my case) you will only see the emails to that account.

Scroll and select the email account you require

And there it is, once again scroll to the email and select it to read it.

To delete an email just press the delete button

You have two options when deleting an email option 1, ‘Delete on mailbox & handheld’ this will delete the email from both the Server hold it and you BB, option 2 only deletes the email from the BB so when you open your email package at home/work you will receive the email in that package.  

You will only receive emails if your other email package does not get them first, this is because most email packages like Outlook or Outlook express will receive the email and automatically delete it from the server, so when your BB taps in to check for emails they may have been deleted from the server before it had a chance to download it.
