Default Question about Email on Droid

When I check my Roadrunner email on the phone and let's say I delete the 4 new messagees that come in...next time I check my email it pushes 4 old messages at the very bottom of my list and they show up unread, thus making you believe you have 4 new messages until you see they are old. Is there anyway to stop this from happening? This is very annoying. I did not have that problem with Mobile Email on my non-Smartphone.

Go into your account settings (hit menu button while in email) and under incoming settings make sure "when I delete from Inbox" is clicked under "Delete email from server."

Oh it is...but the old messages from the server keep coming back everytime I delete email from the Droid...it seems to always like to keep 12 messages in my inbox at all times.

I've noticed a lot of shortcomings in the Droid email as well. They seem to have focused on Gmail rather than on POP3/IMAP email. Some shortcomings I've found:
  • Generally odd behavior in loading email messages. It doesn't seem to load all the email from my POP3 account all the time. Sometimes re-loading email messages after I've deleted them. (Even with the "Delete from server" option selected).
  • No way to move deleted email back to Inbox (i.e. no undelete)
  • No way to empty the Trash
  • Needing to know the "Port" when setting up email accounts. How lame is that?
It doesn't seem that anyone really put this through any decent "real world" testing on how users would want to access their email.

yes, and I have to keep re-installing and changing my email settings practically every time I check my email. It's ridiculous.

I'm trying to figure out if this is a problem wtih my phone or the droid in particular. I never had these problems with my blackberry.......

An option to check all which would allow us to delete all would be great too.

Some of us get huge amounts of email on a daily basis and deleting one at a time really is time consuming.

I gave up on pop email...I cleared my data an now use my providers web mail to get email on the phone.

Never worked right...there's a couple other threads on this. The last straw for me was email didn't update all day..then I'm in a meeting and the damn thing alerted 5 times in 2 minutes and NONE of the emails were new...lame.

yeah I guess you guys nailed my other couple complaints too...

besides old messages that keep coming back when you delete the new ones (keeping its quota of 12)

sometimes it sits there and doesn't load...I also would love to see check boxes to delete multiple emails too

I left the port settings the default and never had a problem...I love how the message acts once opened compared to Mobile Email on a non-smart phone, but darn there are a lot of compromises here

Default Accepting Meetings on Motorola Droid

Hello.
Not sure if anyone posted already, but I tried to send a meeting request using Microsoft Outlook to my gmail account. Email arrived on droid, but I could not figure out how to accept it. On my BB it shows up as meeting request and you can accept or decline. How does it work on Droid? I've had BB for over 2 years, and naturally am comparing Droid with BB...There are so many things Droid is lacking compared to BB.
And another question: After screen goes into stand-by mode, is there a way besides clicking on power button or having to open the keyboard to enable the screen?

Thank you!

To find the delete option in the email app press menu, account settings, scroll down and press incoming settings. There is an option called delete email from server.

Default email hangs

eMail on my Droid seems to hang(?), adding to the strange behavior reading hotmail.

After killing eMail, restarting it I sometimes see it sitting there spinning its wheel without accomplishing anything.

I then go to incoming settings and press next to see it check incoming server settings. It then gives the message "Sorry! process com.android.email has stopped unexpectedly".

I press "foreclose" and return to email where it is still spinning its wheel.

Some time later it may (or may not) download messages.


I've also seen eMail claim it can not connect to the server. But, I can browse the net and my laptop can access my mail server. Again, it will sometimes download new messages.


I will say that fundamentally it seems to work. But, it's tough to trust I'll get new mail in a timely manner, etc.

HELP!
I'm having the same problem. Trying to setup Hotmail. I've checked my settings and they appear to be correct. When I initially set it up yesterday, the Droid did one download of about 30 messages. Since then I've been getting the spinning wheel followed by "Sorry! The application email (process com.android.email) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." And there is a button - "Force Close"

At one point while re-entering the incoming settings - the system was "Checking incoming server settings" and returned a message "unable to open connection to server" and it gave me the option to "edit details"

Any help with this greatly appreciated!

I don't really understand this email setup either. I am so used to using a blackberry which works really well. I guess blackberry has an exchange server that pushes the email to you?
I just have a Comcast account and an account with my website. I am using POP3 but it is just really weird the way it works. Does it just grab a copy of the server when it refreshes? For some reason it deletes emails if I delete it from the server. It is almost like when it refreshes it just grabs a new copy of what’s on the server.
Or maybe it is just deleting the emails because you can only have so many at a time?

Steve this is a known bug. Most people think it has to do with large mailboxes and that error is a server timeout. I already reported this to google and a google engineer prioritized it. Not sure if it will be in the next update or not but my guess is that google needs to completely fix Exchange and make it work better

I've been having issues with roadrunner email as well. Sometimes i'll get an email and it just keeps saying "droid" over and over even after I have viewed the email and in notification bar it shows I have an email but if I slide it down there's nothing there. Weird.

POP email is definitely a problem. It hangs in loading, the circle spins, no messages load....sometimes for hours and hours. I have tried to reset, reload, everything... POP email access is bugged out.

Hmmm. I run with the setting that deletes messages on the server when I delete them on my Droid. So, I just assumed this was part of synching. I really like the message being moved to the deleted folder when that's what I did on the server - it's a nice symmetry. I haven't checked, but I assume I can see it in the deleted folder, and I don't know how it's implemented.

That might seem strange if delete was set to limit that to the local copy only. Perhaps I don't understand this usage model.


I haven't been able to get more than about 25 messages on the Droid - not very many, especially when I have so much memory space and can't look at folders other than deleted and inbox. This seems like a significant and unnecessary limitation.

I don't remember how the native POP3 email client worked, but with K-9 Mail, just below the last message, there is a space labeled, "Load up to...more". Pressing that area downloads your pre-configured number of additional messages. I have ~200 messages in my Hotmail inbox now, and no "reoccurring notifications" on previously downloaded, unopened messages.

Default POP3 email issue simple to fix

Hi guys,

This can be fixed in 2 ways

First
Don't ever delete emails for your inbox via pop3 client or browser.

Email client will only load 25 emails at max(unless you request to load more messages) so not deleting emails shouldn't be a big deal for most people.

Doing that will eliminate 2 problems

1. Manually emptying trash folder by selecting each individual email(oh thank goodness )
2. It will also eliminate the issue of old emails coming back as unread emails

Second
Set 'Delete email from server' to Never under 'Incoming server settings' and dont delete emails from browser

Now you can delete emails in you pop3 email client and NOT have the issue of old emails coming back as unread emails

Only annoying thing with this option is having to manually empty trash folder.



With either options.. if you are setting up the pop3 email for the first time, all 25 synced emails will be in unread status irrespective of the status in browser email.

Hope that helps.

SunRays - I hope your suggestion works for some, but I'll have to say that I run with the delete option turned on and don't see any messages come back from the dead or get duplicated either when I delete on my desktop or on my Droid. And, my mail box seems to stay in sync, which I really like.

What I do see is the Droid email client (or some part of it, as it doesn't ever actually go away) crashing a LOT. In fact, I've failed to get more than about 40 messages onto the Droid - which may come from repeated crashes rather than any message count limit.

I have zero problems with Comcast pop email accounts or gmail. I have three pop email accounts and one gmail. I delete or save what I want from the server at home. The same goes with gmail. I use the combined inbox for everything on the Droid. If I will be away for a couple of days I turn on delete from server on the Droid and it is gone..

It really does work fine...

One of my co-workers turned me onto community.seven.com. This seems to work pretty well at managing four different accounts. The only down side is it doesn't sync contacts or the calendar. Doesn't seem to chew up too much of the battery. I'm using Z7 and not Z7-1 since the latter locks up immediately. Use Other then Android when choosing the phone type.

Account TYpes

OWA - Work
GMAIL
HTTP? - HOTMAIL
POP - COMCAST

I thought Hotmail was dead.. same as Outlook/Express..?? I had no idea people still used them .. Honestly.

My suggestion is this. If you buy a Google powered phone, use Google and Gmail. It is the same backward thinking as Macs running Windows with Boot Camp. It does not make sense. Why would anyone pay extra for a Mac, then install another program to run Windows? Right? If you want Windows buy a PC, they are cheaper and run Windows natively. The Android phones are no different, they are geared for Gmail, not Hotmail or Yahoo.. Just a thought. Infact I think you have to pay extra for Yahoo...

The pop email works fine. If you don't delete it from the server it stays on the server. I find it best to NOT check the delete from server option on the Droid and wait until I get home and run Thunderbird. Once Thunderbird is opened the emails are no longer available to Android, the mail is cleared from the server just by running the default mail program. For instance, I left my computer on with Thunderbird open all night as a test. I received NO email on my Droid. When I woke this morning I closed Thunderbird and started receiving emails on my Droid. It seems the Droid is a mail preview system not THE default email program, unless you check delete from server on the Droid. That is how it works for me anyway.


Here are some great tips from Google: Gmail: What's been keeping the Gmail team busy

*Update: A guy on another thread posted this:

"If you don't want to clutter your email on the droid, try the K9 email app. It gives you the option to delete or not delete mail from the server. My wife and I use the same email address, so my box is full of her importat stuff which would litter my phone. Now I can delete everything on the phone and keep it on the server."

Under the phone's main settings, then under "Accounts", make sure the listed Facebook account is set to sync...along with all the other "Background Processes".

Pretty dumb post. Hotmail POP3 works well with other devices without having to jump through hoops and remembering where and where not to delete server emails. It should work on the droid too. Good thing you don't work for Google! I am sure they will fix it soon.

Depends on which email app you are using, but for the majority, just go to the "Accounts" view, press and hold the account you want to delete, and then select "Remove/Delete" from the pop-up menu.

Default Deleted Droid Emails

To stop deleted emails from re-downloading back to your Droid go to Settings>Accounts & sync and turn off Sync for gmail or other email clint. I have an AOL account and every time I would delete my emails they would come right back. A BIG pain in the butt. Doing the above solved the problem. If you have another email client other then gmail turn off Sync. Hope this helps.

This has nothing to do with the POP mail problems ... just my observation on a statement about Mac users and Windows software.

In response to the "why do people buy Macs and load Boot Camp to run Windows" statement ... some programs are Windows only - no Mac version - and if the Mac is your choice of computer (which as far as I'm concerned it should be) than Boot Camp will be needed - depending on the program you need to run.

Let's put it another way ... people who use Boot Camp have to - they have no choice. It's that or use two separate computers - one Mac and one Windows based.

Or to really drive home the point ... why don't software vendors accept the fact that there are people out there who prefer a Mac over a Windows based computer and therefore provide their software for BOTH platforms.

Default email upload question

first post...

I have a droid x and my email is on an exchange server. I inadvertantly permanently deleted 1000's of emails in my deleted box on my exchange server and thus outlook on my home pc. Fortunately they are still on my droid in the trash for some reason. So I'd like to copy or somehow upload those emails from my droid. Any ideas?

Default EMails in Android

Hi, I am using Samsung S2 Android phone and sycnronizing my domain Emails hosted in Google Apps. I have used Incoming & outgoing email server settings as 'pop.gmail.com;port:995 and smtp.gmail.com; port:587. I am able to sychronize my domain emails where I am facing two problems. 1) whenver I sync up my phone, I do not see old opened emails on the devise and 2) If I open new incoming emails in phone, these emails do not synchronize (do not showup) in Outlook (using Outlook as a client for Google Apps emails). Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks

Obviously a flawed client. No way to undelete? No way to move files? Text can't be enlarged without crowding? Display of mail gets justified to skinny character per line when enlarged?
If I insult android will i be hacked? This is a toy, make a phone please
