    I have a Motorola Droid running Android version 2.2. Every so often I will receive email on my Droid from a POP3 account where the subject line does not match the body of the e-mail. For example I will receive on my Droid an e-mail from Amazon confirming order shipment but the body of the e-mail will be an advertisement from Hertz, HP, etc. The Amazon e-mail body is not shown. If I look in Gmail online it is fine so this so this is only on the Droid. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I take it this is NOT a gmail account. Are you using the stock email on the Droid or something else? And, how do you have your gmail account setup to receive the POP3 account?

    I have had this problem as well but not only with 2.2. My fix is to remove and re-add the email account. I have to do this regularly anyways because I can't select-all delete my trash folder and it gets too big.

    Thanks for the responses. I deleted the items in my trash folder (600 items) and that seemed to fix the problem.
