    Same here! There would be days where the email notification would go crazy and days, like yesterday, that I have to manually refresh to get an email.

    How did you set up your GoDaddy email? Here's the link that's worked for others.

    And how did you set up the Hotmail account? Here are instructions that seem to work - at least for me and everyone I've passed them on to.

    EMAIL SETUP for POP3 ACCOUNTS: Hotmail POP3 (This also works for WINDOWS LIVE email setup) (non-root solution)

    1. From the home screen, pull up the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Mail
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address)
    Password: enter your hotmail password
    POP3 server: pop3.live.com
    Port: 995
    Security type: SSL
    5. Touch Next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP server: smtp.live.com
    Port: 587
    Security type: TLS (and check mark “Require sign-in”)
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address again)
    Password: enter your hotmail password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    (If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is turned OFF then try again)

    I just got my droid. I'm coming from a black berry. I also have issues with e-mail. either I never get them or even more annoying. When I send e-mail it doesnt make it. Yesterday I sent out 3 e-mails to my wife like 2pm 4pm and 6pm and she ended up getting every one at the same time around 7pm.

    Im using a comcast.net e-mail address. I'm going to try using gmail but there clearly is an issue here.

    I would suggest to both of you to download K-9 Mail (free) in the Market. I couldn't find much about everyone.net and there are many people having issues with Comcast. Everyone who uses K-9 swears by it. Hope that helps you!

    Hinky Email

    Droid has hinky email. It is worse than the blackberry and worse than the iPhone.

    gmail: google has been having outages. maybe it'll be better tomorrow. If you expect gmail to be instantaneously delivered to your phone, then you get your wish about 92% of the time. The other 8% is another story..

    As far as other email accounts, there are many potential problems. DO NOT USE THE STOCK EMAIL CLIENT. Use K9 from the market to give yourself a fighting chance.

    Help with email

    I am a neophyte (1 week). I get new emails timely with correct sender and reference line, but when I open the email, it is the text from another, older email.

    The 1st time this happened I manipulated a bunch of settings, rebooted, etc. and the problem resolve (probably as a result of nothing that I did), but the problem has returned.

    I have a problem where my IMAP process duplicates my corporate email data base of more than 20,000 messages (it synchs up the subject folders as well as inbox, sent, delete, junk, etc.)

    I do not want to have all 20,000 messages from my server on my phone (I do want them on my PC). Since there is no date filter, I cannot limit the mail to the last 10 days as is done on the Blackberry. Does Verizon really want to exclude the hundreds of thousands of business user because they cannot limit the mail to the last 10 days in IMAP.

    The GMail solution will not work for many reasons. The originator email address is gone, your reply address is now GMail, and now way to delete read messages from the original email data base.

    Just for another data point:

    I use Gmail and Corporate Mail on my Droid. They both get strange occasionally for short spells, but they always recover. Most events seem to last just minutes, and I've had less than 5 of them.

    I get my mail from the Exchange server in 1-5 seconds. I get my mail from Gmail in 5-15 seconds.

    I have been running this way since purchase....~8weeks.

    Droid is stock, running OTA 2.1. Only a few installed apps, most would be considered "tame". No task killer.

    Be happy to help anyone that thinks an answer can be found in my setup.

    Logged in this morning to see if anyone else was having a G-mail issue. My Droid isn't picking up new G-mails without a manual refresh. Kinda noticed it yesterday afternoon, but confirmed it this morning. Tried a reboot/battery pull, but no luck. I'm surprised to see that people started reporting this problem 2 weeks ago.

    If gmail requires manual refresh:
    - doublecheck all settings to insure sync is on for that account
    - don't use an automated task killer
    - do phone settings > applications > manage applications > menu > filter > all > gmail storage > clear data

    Stock email client is a POS. Don't use it. Use k9.

    If k9 requires manual refresh, you may want to download their latest beta build available on their google code site.

    Under 2.01 gmail app, k9, etc. would sometimes stop syncing/polling because of problems with certain wifi routers. I ended up not using wifi and my problems went away. Now, with 2.1 I use wifi no problem.

    One more thing I just read about in another thread. If mail is there but no alarm was sounded it may be because the droid was in a deep sleep. It was recommended that Load Monitor from the market be used. Haven't tried it myself.
