Default Milestone: "Sorry,The application email (process com.android.email) has stopped

I've searched and seen various derivatives of this message throughout this forum, dealing with cameras, or email on different phones etc, but nothing exactly like this for the Milestone.

Milestone: "Sorry The application email (process com.android.email) has stopped (unexpectedly) Please try again" followed by a "Force Close" button.

This pops up dozens of times per day, causes no real problems that I'm aware of, but is pesky, as I have to keep tapping the 'Force Close" button all the time to make it go away (for a while).

I'm using 2.0.1 OS, have only one gmail account.

Does anyone know of a solution?

yea i used to get that too whenever im using the 'email' app. It just kept coming up while im trying to browse through my emails... but that problem has mysteriously gone away....just as it had mysteriously appeared in the first place lol...

btw im using 2.1...

and i doubt that problem has anything to do with gmail..since email and gmails are 2 different apps.

Well, I sort of solved the problem by switching off the email notifications.

Of course, now I don't get any notice of new emails, but that doesnt break my heart.
Sometimes I found that little beeping noise going off at the most inappropriate times anyway.

I can still check my emails at the touch of an icon, so it's no biggy.

Wonder what the real problem was?

Default this might work...

I was having the email issue non stop for the last few days - it kept force closing the app on me and drove me crazy. I hard resetting multiple times, deleting apps, recharging/discharging battery, and even deleting all of my email settings and then redoing them; nothing worked.

Then I noticed that one (of my 3) email accounts had just gotten a relatively big file attachment (4.5 mb) when all of my emails are usually sub 20K. So I deleted all the recent big attachment emails from the account and voila - no more force close all day. alternately, you could just move them into a diff email folder too.

Good luck - hope this may work for some of you out there.

I'm getting this with my Captivate too. I installed LauncherPro and Lockbot last night, but it was working fine. It worked this morning....and then bam! Every single time I try to look at an email it does this. The only thing I can think of is I tried to open an email from my boss about something on our calendar that had been cancelled. I uninstalled lockbot and turned the phone off and back on, but I don't know what else to do. This is so frustrating, and it happens on both my work and gmail accounts. Please help. I am the definition of n00b here.

Default The answer to the pain in the #$%@ email failed message

This worked great for me

The Solution:
1 ) Go into your email from your desktop client and delete or file away (archive) the latest emails that you suspect may’ve started to cause this issue.
2 ) From your Android device, go to Settings.
3 ) Select Applications
4 ) Select Manage Applications
5 ) Hit your Menu option/button (the one with four lines usually between the Back/Return button and the Home button)
6 ) Select Filter
7 ) Select Running in the Filter Options pop-up menu.
8 ) Scroll down and select Email. (If it’s not in the list, you probably killed it. Go back and start it first and then return to step 1.)
9 ) In the Email app’s Application Info screen, press the Clear data button. (Be advised that this will essentially clear all of your account info from the Email app, causing you to have to re-set everything up again like your login name, password, server names, etc. The exact prompt says, “All of this application’s data will be deleted permanently. This includes all files, settings, accounts, databases and so on.” Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean it will delete your emails on the server.)
10 ) Open up the Email app again and it will prompt you to set everything up again (log in name, password, servers, etc.). Walah! The error message should now be gone.

dougvarrieur - Your solution looked promising to me until I got to #6. My HTC Incredible 2 does not have a filter to select after clicking the menu button. Any other thoughts?

Default The application Email (process com.android.email) has stopped unexpectedly

All the solutions mentioned here will not work. The best solution is to disable the email notification from the email program.Email->account setting->Email Notifications.
Disable it and you will no longer get this error when a new email arrives. test it by sending a new email from other account.
