    Picked up the Droid on Thursday. My two main issues are email problems. Its been reported that setting up an email that is not a gmail account takes extra step (I have a yahoo account) and I manage to get through that issue thanks to phandroid.com.

    Issue 1 is that the phone or the android software (I don't know which to blame) wont foward any email attachments using an email other than gmail. I tried to forward a friend's powerpoint file and it did not forward.

    Issue 2 is for some reason, when the phone is in Wifi mode, my yahoo mail account wont sync, it gives the user name and password error message. However, when I shut off wifi and go back to 3g mode, yahoo mail is in sync again. Anybody else having this problem.

    i have had this problem too. Look for the K-9 mail app in the Android market it solved all my email forwarding problems and works flawlessly with yahoo.
