    Hi got my first droid (fascinate)about a month ago. I switched from a blackberry. I'm having lots of problems with it. I don't get notified when I get emails and the times I do its a few hours later eveb though my frequency is set to every 5min. Also outgoing emails will just set in outbox and send when they feel like it if ever.very frustrating..

    How is your signal? Do other applications (browser, ytube) have the same issue (being slow)?

    I had the same problem when I first switched to the phone. Give it a couple of days to see if it improves for mine did. Also, if you are using the advanced task killer, make sure you have it set up not to close the email app.

    I didn't see a setting to make it push? Its not the ringtone it just doesng notify nothing in status bar or anything. Every so often it will notify but its about 3-4hours after the fact and I have mine set to every 5min.

    I noticed that the stock email client was having problems with updating/syncing pop3 accounts and switched to using k9mail for those. I believe that verizon fixed some issues with exchange syncing in their last ota update as well, so you might want to update if you haven't already done so.
