    It seems that almost everytime I go to read my pop3 mail, after a couple of emails, the Droid will just freeze as if it is trying to download a large file. It never completes the task and even if i delete the email, it comes right back as an unread one. The best fix so far is actuall re-booting the phone. Does anyone else have a consistent problem with Driod freezing with wmail? I have tried the usual things such as task killing all apps.
    Thanks

    Erm, pleas write me what providers you have. Because the only reason i can imagine is tu pull limit.

    Explenation:
    Most emailproviders allow POP pull only 1 time in like 3 minutes. if you go over that rate, you cant. So, the DROID, if you open a pop acc, pulls new mails. So if it did that just a secound before, and then you open the account, it tries to times within the time limit.

    But that should NOT lead to a COMPLETE Freeze, only to a freeze of the mailapp

    RinTin, The rest of the phone doesn't shut down or freeze. The email doesn't even fully crash. It only seems to lock up when i open up any email with html or ones that are text but have an attachment. When i go to open one, it opens to a "thinking" wheel that isnt moving and says "loading" over the top of it. The email server is through go-daddy, but i have never had this issue come up at all on my blackberry. it was just painfully slow.

    Mostly 3g, but it happens in 2g zones as well. Its bizarre. Surfing the web and all other internet dependent programs run well and fast, it just this one issue.

    Yea its weird. I don't know if i have some sort of html bandwidth setting somewhere that isn't letting certain stuff through or what is causing html emails not to load and freeze. well thank you for lending me your brain, cuz mine sure wasn't firing well on this one. If you come across a fix, let me know.

    THx

    Sounds like a typical pop3 issue with a large file. This used to happen all the time on dial up cust's ... :)

    The reason you get it "Again" is because the mail client doesn't get a change to tell your pop server that it completed parsing and DL of the mail. Mail on pop accounts is stored on the server in one large text file, which must be broken down (parsed) and sent to the remote client. If that gets interrupted, and the pop3 server doesnt get that message, you'll re-download the first emails again, up to the point where it locks.

    If you suspect that this is the case, other than how the signal is on the connection affecting speed of the download, I would advise opening a browser and going to your account via a web based client to see if indeed you have someone throwing something large at you, you can delete it by web based client, then go back and refresh your mail in "email".

    To be honest, and I'm not sure if you can do it in go daddy (I can with windows live mail and my oen domain email) why not go for a IMAP setup?

    By using IMAP it is the next best thing to using a web based client, you manipulate the email on the server, may improve your performance.

    By using IMAP on my personal email, I can leave what I want to DL to my computer for later, yet read and respond to email as it arrives.

    Just something for you to play with.
