+1. This is what I'm getting as well. I can't say that I've gotten an e-mail while driving - that I've noticed anyway - but I just have the email icon (envelope + @) with a "0" next to it. I noticed the envelope text icon show up by the clock when the text came through, then I went to "office" then "current office."

It definitely has some kinks that need to be worked out, but it's better than what we've had before. It would be really nice if there were to add an icon to access Siri so that we could reply to the text being viewed, but I think that may be asking for too much.
