    so wen i had 2.0.1 i noticed wen i sent email from the fone that i looked in the sent folder and found several of the same email.

    q1: does it mean the fone fired off all those emails to the recipient ?

    q2: verizon says there's yahoo email support now with 2.1, but i still see this issue ...
    i took the extra steps to delete my yahoo account and recreate it (on the fone) after installing 2.1 ...

    No it didn't send all those messages out, they just appear in the sent box. The 2.1 update was supposed to resolve the issue

    new 2.1 update doesn't seem to have fixed the multiple sent email issue. I am just back to using the link m.yahoo.com/mail , which I've saved to the home screen as a shortcut to get to yahoo web mail, within a browser

    i do hope that the recipients didnt get bombarded with a million of the same email ...

    q1: No, the recipient only sees one. Thankfully.

    q2: ...what is your question? I have not seen the "multiple sent" issue since I got 2.1, and I didn't change my yahoo setup at all. Not saying you're not still having it, just providing a single anecdotal confirmation of it being fixed for at least some people.

    Make sure wifi is turned off and you're using 3g. Ymail doesn't work over wifi for some reason.

    well, i can't even get mine to accept new mail from my inbox. it delivered everything to my phone initially, but haven't gotten a new mail message notice YET! and i received at least 10 emails after i set it up yesterday. i set the update period to check every 10 minutes.

    I think I had about 3000 of the same message saved in the sent file yesterday! It did this before and after the update. I have not changed any settings.

    this is def. some weird behavior. i let vzw know and they gave me a hotline to reach motorola tech support directly.

    btw .. each mail account i have set up on the fone identifies emails with a color bar on the left (in list view) ... is there any meaning to this other than color coding to match calendar entries with an account ?

    Yahoo uses the same port as WiFi, so if one is using it, the other can't.

    My ymail account was working seemingly well this morning but then it would keep refreshing and no email would arrive. I know there are emails coming as I checked it on my computer. I deleted the account from my Droid and tried to set it back up but all I got was the message "connecting to server" for at least 10 mins until I pulled the battery.

    Is the Google phone really not compatible with using other email accounts? That would be crazy because not everyone has a Google account.
