    Because email is one of my high-priority items, this might be the deal-breaker for me. Gmail works fairly well, bringing in my POP3 emails from 2 other accounts - although slowly - but managing my folders (labels) on the Droid is not a pleasure and it never announces new emails. That other email app on the Droid is totally frustrating to me - I simply cannot get it to connect to either POP3 account. I am missing my Treo about now - Snapper Mail is not perfect but it faithfully collects email from both accounts, removes them from the server or not, as I wish and notifies me immdiately when mail arrives. Is there any rumor of a 3rd party email app that will work with the Droid? I have 30 days before I will - or will not - return it to Verizon. (Otherwise it is a very interesting and excellent phone in many ways...) There... that's my b**** session for today! :)

    I think you have some setup issue or maybe connectivity issue as mine works great and fast on all 5 accounts I have setup so far... one exchange and 4 pop3.

    I will try to walk you through this, I had major troubles last night but managed to set up 2 pop accounts and 3 imap accounts.

    Here is my problem with the 2nd email account: I only use it to sign up for things and because I have a very limited, email-only account with the ISP I cannot send email using that email address. I believe that is why the Droid's email app is not letting me set this one up (although Snapper Mail did...). Do you know if there is a way to set up Incoming Mail only, without the Outgoing feature? (Grasping at straws here...)

    you will need to use the outgoign mail server and login of a server you have permission to use. you can set you outgoing mail on this account to one of your other accounts.

    Brilliant! It worked! Thank you P3 & R1 - you're the best!

    One more small ?... Is there a batch select for the Inbox - Select All - Delete... that sort of thing? (Not a huge deal... the email works!)

    I haven't found it if there is, the phone is so fast for me I just hit the delete key when reading the message... then it pops up to the next one. It's fast enough I haven't needed the multi select yet.

    If you do find it let me know though.. :)

    I have read the manual and played around and can not find a batch delete function as well. But it is quite snappy and functions quite well otherwise.

    You're right... it is really fast! I'll bet someone makes a hack for batch actions before too long... :)
