How to add folder icon to the blackberry home screen?

I have an old blackberry 8700c, I want to create a home screen icon that takes me directly to the SMS Inbox folder, or to a specific folder from my exchange mailbox, how do I do that?
I found out that pressing alt with the wheel lets me move or delete an existing icon from the homescreen, but how do I add an entirely new one ?

That's what it look like: http://www.cebst.com/blackberry+8700c.jpg

How to add folder icon to the blackberry home screen? - It is easy!
  • Enable IMAP in your Gmail settings.
  • From your BlackBerry home screen, select the BlackBerry Set-up icon, then choose Personal Email Set-up. (On older devices, just look for the Personal Email Set-up icon.)
  • Select Personal Email Set-up.
  • Accept Terms and Conditions.
  • On the 'Email Account Set-up' page, enter your full email address (including '@gmail.com' or '@your_domain.com') but leave the 'Password:' field blank. Select Next.
  • You'll see a screen that says 'We were unable to configure [username@gmail.com].' Select I will provide the settings to add this email account, then Next.
  • Select Internet Service Provider Email (POP/IMAP), then Next.
  • Select I will provide the settings to add this email account, then Next.
  • You'll see 'The BlackBerry Internet Service could not configure [username@gmail.com] email account.' Select Provide The Settings to continue.
  • In the 'User name:' field, enter your full email address (including '@gmail.com'). Google Apps users, please enter your full email address at your domain. Then enter your password in the 'Password:' field.
  • In the 'Email server:' field, enter 'imap.gmail.com,' then select Next. Google Apps users should enter the server name provided; don't add your domain name in this step.
  • If IMAP access was successfully configured, select OK.
  • Below your newly added Gmail address, select Edit.
  • Select Advanced Settings at the bottom.
  • Make sure the port is set to '993' and 'Use SSL' is set to 'Yes.'
  • Select Save.

Um... No. And don't do it again unless you want to get banned.
