    I have several POP email accounts on my Verizon Droid.
    As the mail comes in, I read it and then delete it.
    That same deleted email keeps showing up as new and reloads in each POP email account.

    I can't understand this one, I've set up the POP accounts correctly.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    This is a known issue - I had the same exact problem. I downloaded a mail program (free) called K-9 Mail. It's WAY better than the Droid's email program and doesn't have this bug. In fact it's far more like the blackberry and how it handles email.

    I have the same issue with my Droid. Hopefully they fix this on the software update in December. I'm going to try the K-9 mail and see how that works.

    Do you guys get the same issue as not getting any email notifications with Yahoo? I set it to every 5 minutes but it never checks every 5 minutes. Very annoying!

    Ihave had this problem intermittently as well. I'll try K-9.

    On a related note, I posted re: a problem with e-mail disappearing from my inbox. I have discovered the source of the problem but don't yet have an answer.

    On my iTouch, when I receive mail, it stays in the iTouch regardless of whether I delete the e-mail off the server entirely. Not so with the Droid! Once I use Outlook Express to pull my e-mail off the server, my e-mail disappears from my inbox on the Droid. An immediate workaround is to change the settings on OE to not delete off the server, but I get so much mail this would use up my e-mail space quickly.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Have you tried not to delete it, but just to mark it read?
    Then it wouldnt appear all the time i gues...just as temporary solution,...

    Thank you for the K-9 suggestion... if it's like the Blackberry interface, that will be nice.

    By the way, I have 700 email messages in the Trash Folder. Is there a way to 'bulk' delete all of these?

    Knowledge is wonderful... thanks for sharing yours!

    I have this problem. Set the Droid and i-Touch side by side. Have a verizon.net email account. Check email on both. Both download e-mails fine. Open Outlook on the home computer and download e-mail. Check both devices and i-Touch still has e-mails, but they are gone from the Droid. ANY HELP??

    nosrndr,
    at the advice of another user, I now just funnel all mail accounts through gmail. I've also set up in Outlook to keep messages on the server. I personally am not crazy about this option, as I don't find the "conversation" UI approach in Gmail to be very intuitive (although I may get used to it).

    On a slightly related note does Gmail on the Droid have a "sent" folder and a "deleted" folder? I can't find them.

    I had that problem with the email program, so I set the gmail up with IMAP settings & set it to check my pop mail. Problem solved. :)
