    Does anyone else have the same problem? When I use the default email client from captivate, even when I set the checking period as every 10mins, I won't get new emails unless I open the app and manually refresh, well, except the one of gmail. This happens on my yahoo email, hotmail and my school email, which all worked fine on my old iphone. People have talked about yahoo mails won't be accessible through wifi from Android, which happens on mine too. But even when I was at 3G, the email client won't auto check it either. I have tried K9 email client, it doesn't work either. The only thing I find work is the MailDriod, but the function of this app is very limited, it won't even open attachments by default. Does anyone else here have the same problem, or maybe an idea to fix the default email client?

    Also, I find when I use the ear set make calls, when I try to click the button on the ear set, it won't hang up the call as my iphone would. Is this a bug or just something Andriod can't do? The button on the ear set seems quite useless with Captivate, it can only control to play or pause by single click when play music, won't do song change when doule click it.

    Email im not sure. I only use gmail. Could try routing all your mail but that's a PITA.

    As far as the calls,are you talking about bluetooth? If you are. No it doesn't work. Android doesn't support bluetooth ttt. Froyo does though. Try top voice control app.

    I guess the best is to forward all the other emails to gmail. For the calls, I was just talking about the include earphone for Captivate, it seems the button on it is quite useless :mad:

    Ahh, that I have no idea. I believe it's just to answer calls, it does not terminate them. I only use them for earphones so honestly have never played with it.

    i'm having the same issues with my email. but it was only AFTER i upgraded the system to froyo 2.2. at&t blames samsung. samsung is clueless and blames at&t. i've tried it with my gmail, aol, yahoo. i've always had windows phones. thought android was supposed to be so wonderful. i've replaced my captivate THREE times now! the fourth will be coming soon. i am also having problems when clicking apps on the home page, it goes to different apps than what the icon is for. the return button also goes to search instead. and no, i'm not hitting the search button. i'm very careful about that. as far as i'm concerned, android is a POS system! stuck for another year, but i will be getting a windows phone before then! oh, yes, and i've also done SEVERAL hard manual resets of the phone system. NOT FUN!
