    Hey All,

    I'm new to the Forum but have owned the Droid since it was released on Nov 6th and have loved it until I started having an issue this morning.

    I use the Native Droid Mail App to sync up to my exchange server at the office and it worked great until this morning when everytime I try to open a new email I get the "Force Close" message. It still receives all new emails and I can see them in the Inbox, but when I actually try to open the email, the App crashes.

    I've already tried re-configuring the accounts, re-starting the droid, and simply killing the app with the task manager and restarting it, but with no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Same happened to me today. I think a restore is the only thing to fix it.

    Someone in another thread found an issue with an email that had Chinese charaters in an attachment file name....might be worth a look.

    Same issue here, one minute I am reading emails and now I can get new emails, but when I try to read them it force closes. Exchange and hotmail accounts seem to be the only thing affected, gmail still works just fine.

    same thing happening to me. I cant figure it out. very annoying. I've done everything but a factory reset, and i'd really rather not do that if at all possible. I can log into the account online and do whatever, but can't open anything thru the email app.
    Surely somebody has figured this out!! :)

    Go into the settings and kill off the email account (or rather it kills ALL your email accounts less Gmail). You can then create a new account and re-sync again. Down side is all your ring tones / picture attachments will have to be added.
    That's the only way I know to fix the "bug" short of a total reset.
    Let me know if that helps.

    I was constantly getting a force close and memory full (even though it shouldn't be) message while trying to remove an account...when that happens, it won't allow incoming texts either...I take it I may have to do a full reset?

    edit...now i'm getting a 'android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly' message too

    I had the same stupid problem today!! It had been working reliably since the get go (11/6/2009) and then suddenly I had the problem where the app force closed when trying to open an email. I was able to see new email headers but I could not open any of the emails. The above solution worked for me! Thanks a bunch. I think I would be hosed without this forum.

    Clearing all application data via Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/Email and restetting up Exchange account worked for me. Annoying but it worked.
