Hey guys I wanna make my k-9 mail so its my default email instead of the stock. How do I do this?
Go into stock email and turn off notifications and on first time doing something that would prompt which program, check make default and k9.

You can always clear the current defaults for a program by going into phone settings > applications. Find the app and push it's "Clear defaults" button. In this case, you could do this with the Email app.
Well I got the notifications shut off and it no longer receives the email in the stock app. However now when you open k-9 mail you have to click on the load 25 more deal before it receives them. any ideas???
Are you using IMAP or POP3? If POP3, there's a setting for polling frequency.
You're not using a task killer are you? Don't.
What do you mean by imap or pop3?
Where is your email account hosted? For example...Google, Yahoo, AOL, godaddy, earthlink, something else?
IMAP, POP3, and Exchange are 3 popular ways to connect to email servers.
I have hotmail
So it gets email fine when you make it refresh manually? To what is your polling frequency set? You aren't killing tasks / using an automated task killer, are you?
Ouch, OK, hotmail isn't the easiest for email clients to deal with. Yahoo can be a pain too. Still, this might help you: K-9 not getting pop3 email... - Android Forums
The post mentions hotmail settings.
Where do I see what my polling frequency is set to?
I personally think its a problem with hotmail. When I was using the stock email alot of times I would have to refresh my phone and like 15 emails would come in when the phone turned back on. Would I be better off getting a new email service? What a good one to use with the droid
Gmail would be the best with the phone... that whole Google thing, you know?
