    Not sure I should have posted this here or in Tech...
    I am a long time Gmail user - and used it on my LG EnV Touch with no issues thru Verizon -- however, while I love the interface on the LG Ally -- it's making me a little nuts.

    I am used to the entire email "conversation" of replies being included in the email below the most current reply -- and the subject line being strictly "RE: what ever the original subject was" regardless of how many times the message had been passed back & forth

    Now with each reply the message is GROSSLY TRUNCATED. and the subject line looks like "Re: Re: Re: Re: RE: what ever the original subject was" I often refer to the previous email when typing a reply...now I cant see it unless I save as draft and go back to the previous email.

    Is this an Android thing? Do I have some setting set wrong & dont realize it? I've poked around but havent found an answer.

    I don't know if it's an Android or a Gmail thing, but here's what I do about it.

    I go to gmail on line, trash. I delete the previous emails that were made on that subject out of the trash. Then everything comes out right.

    Don't want to do that? OK, then instead of using your gmail icon go on line to www.gmail.com and you'll get the full email.

    This is also a problem for people who use forums. The links to respond are cut off and you have to use the first email.

    I try keeping my email cleaned up as much as I can for that reason.

    I'm not sure I follow this because you used "on line" in more than one place...are you talking about trashing from your PC, from the Droid Gmail program or from the Droid Browser....can you try explaining it again step by step - I might be interested in trying it on emails that I know I NEED to have the full conversation in. (Unless of course someone else has an easier solution....)

    I don't think we are on the same page. Maybe I misunderstood what you were looking for.

    1. www.gmail.com
    2. select trash
    3. delete group or single email you have had come in previously
    4. Next email you receive on the same subject will not be truncated. But the conversations from the previous mail will be gone.

    If you want to view the entire conversation then do this.

    1. www.gmail.com
    2. select latest gmail
    3. you will see entire conversations.

    You can also do this by setting up gmail on the stock email client, but that will cause double notifications, and that will drive you crazy.

    I hope that explains what I'm thinking and helps you out.

    Is there a way to keep Gmail from doing this? I too have noticed this and, was wondering how (if it is even possible) to keep it from doing it in the first place? I have looked around a bit, but haven't found anything.
