I have had my DroidX for about 6 months and happened on this site because once I tethered my phone to my laptop I had this problem:
"I cannot access Gmail or my Yahoo mail. After I hit the link to go to the sign in page it just hangs and then times out.
I have [this problem] only when accessing the email through my tethered Droid X. Gmail goes straight to half the download bar and yahoo just creeps until it times out."
which Brettgee enunciated so well in July 2010.
There is apparently no "fix" for this?
