Message Store on a Phone

This section explains how the UI layer displays a Message Store to a phone user.

A message centre application displays the structure of the Message Store to the user. Different UIs map the structure to different views.

Note: The presentation of folders is done in the UI layer and not the Messaging API.

Series 60

The following figure shows the top level view of a message centre application on a Series 60 phone:

Figure 1. Series 60 message centre

In the figure, you can see that the message centre has hidden the local service and shows the standard folders at the same level as the services. Also the SMTP, SMS and MMS services are marked as hidden entries in the Message Store, and so do not appear in the message application. The outbox does not retain copies of sent messages, but are saved in the Sent folder.
