    deleting email

    My Droid is deleting email randomly. I get email. I delete some and choose to open and look at some with the hopes of later coming back to respond to them. When I open up into email they are gone.

    Where have they gone an how can I get this to stop?

    Also what is up with the pink strip on the left of the email. Does it do anything?

    I really don't understand what's going on with your Droid, but if you're missing mail go to your gmail account on line and you can always find it there.

    Re: deleting email

    Try pressing menu, then labels, then select all mail. It could be that you're accidentally "archiving" emails. That hides them from view in the inbox, but they'll be visible under all mail if this is the case

    It is a comcast account not a gmail account.

    This is a google phone. You should have your comcast mail forwarded to gmail, this will solve your issues.

    Follow the instructions in these directions to properly configure your email.

    When I press menu I get the options of refresh compose, folders, accounts, and account settings. I don't see labels.

    Yeah, you're using the standard email client. That's not how these phones are designed. It will be smoother if you set it up as I described in the previous response.

    Is there any reason you can't just go to your gmail account via your laptop? I'm not understanding. Is there a reason you need outlook?

    I am used to Outlook and really like it. I also use it for calendaring, which I guess need to find another alternative too.
