When I first set up the email account I followed the video on this forum to do it and I chose the imap option?? What is the difference between imap pop3 and the other one?

    I thought DROID does not allow upload? That could be why it is not working.

    IMAP keeps the list of messages on server and sync it across different locations that access it.

    Pop3 just keeps a list of messages and does not do any syncing.

    IMAP is better if you access the same account across different computers/locations, but POP3 gives you sightly more control after it is downloaded (since there is no syncing, you can keep it anywhere you want, even if differently across different locations).

    I'm able to send photo attachments (that's all I've tried so far) vie my gmail account with the Gmail app. I don't have any other email accounts though, so I don't know about using the other email app.

    Sending attachments with the stock email apps is counterintuitive. We've been trained on our computers to compose an email, select an attachment and send. On the Droid you select your attachment with your file manager (I use Astro), long press, choose how to send it (depending on the attachment, you'll get different send options), then send. I've sent documents (.doc, .pdf...), photos, music and video with no problems.

    Agree with todd.....Better to send from the item you want to send, little weird but works every time.
