    Just got the Bionic and got my POP3 email set up without a problem. With the original Droid, once I downloaded emails off the server and onto my home computer, they no longer showed up on the Droid. With the Bionic they seem to stay until I manually delete them. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    What you're describing sounds like IMAP and not POP3. Try switching if you can.

    Exact same problem, and it's definitely a POP3 thing. I am hosting several domain names on a rented server, and have the email set up in outlook on my home computer using pop3.

    Original Droid was set as pop3, and once I downloaded email from server to home PC using outlook, anything that was previously on the D1 in the email inbox, then disappeared next time I refreshed the email on the D1.

    My domain name's email is not running on an exchange server.

    The old email always stays on the Bionic when I refresh it. The only way to get rid of it is manually delete it........ which is a nuisance.

    What's the solution to get pop3 working on the bionic like it did on the D1?

    I found a free email app called K-9 Mail that lets me do it with the pop3 email account. Seems to have a lot more functionality too...

    I installed K9 today and it seems to work like the D1 did.

    Another thing that you'll notice is that you can't switch e-mail accounts like you used to be able to do on D1. It looks like Universal Inbox is supposed to be the replacement for how the original Droid e-mail worked but it's not as good. On D1 I had two different e-mail accounts set up with a separate ringtone notification to each one. Once setup, I was able to see each account together or separately. Now with Bionic there is no quick way to switch between both or one. You have to go to E-Mail settings and change default e-mail in order to switch.

    Hopefully K9 will be what I'm looking for.

    I am having trouble getting my imap email to work. I have configured this account countless times on my D1 with no problem and many other devices and email clients. I have all the correct port settings in and server settings in. I deleted the account and re-tried it 10 times. Also tried it with SSL configuration.

    Gives me an error: Invalid server certificate.

    Try unchecking Verify Certificate in Settings: Accounts:Mail:Incoming & Outgoing:Advanced settings

    This has been discussed many times and the only way to get the pop email not to show up on the Bionic is to load the power widget and turn off the sync, second button from the right. Then you need to open the settings on the messaging and turn off fetch for the pop accounts. This will keep the pop mail from showing up on the bionic until you open the universal inbox or individual account and refresh. The only problem with this is fetch may turn itself back on after a couple of days. I have been unable to figure out what is making that happen.

    Hotmail help

    Let me start this by saying I am not terribly tech savvy...
    I have a question regarding my email accounts on my Bionic.
    I am a former Blackberry user and on my BB's all of my email accounts
    were synched I guess you could say. Meaning that anything I deleted on my phone would
    be deleted in my email account. I've noticed with my Bionic that while my Gmail does this,
    my hotmail account does not. Is there anyway I can change this? There is no dedicated hotmail
    app that I have found...

    Thanks.
