    I have read many threads on this issue, and still can't seem to solve my problem.

    I am using the k9 email client with my yahoo mail. I am not able to get email pushed onto my droid. I have changed around all the settings as per the advice on different forums, yet I am still only able to retrieve mail when I click the "check mail" button. It is always a manual pull, rather than getting them pushed on to my phone as they come in.

    I don't, for the life of me, understand how such an advanced operating system like android not have a decent email application. I just switched over from a blackberry, and I must say, the email worked perfectly there. I'm hoping I just have some settings wrong and this can be resolved, but clearly I am not the only one having these issues.
