    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.

    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

    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.

    oK I have done that and it is working on my phone, but maybe I forgot to mention that I use outlook on my laptop. Now non of the messages are going there. How can I fix that?

    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.

    See this link here:http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=47948. I think that has the answer for Outlook.

    For syncing your Outlook Calendar with Google Calendar there are instructions on the right top side of Google Calendar. Look for the sync link.
