    I assume you've already tried rebooting?

    yes, i did.

    I got some other issues with synching stuff but I can deal with that later, I need my email though, quite important.

    I wasn't happy with the native mail client in the Captivate either... someone recommended K9 mail and so far.... so good.

    I don't know then, German... maybe remove that account and sign it up again? That's gotta be a pain, but sounds like something messed up somewhere :( If you find a fix, let us know!

    With that did you DL the K9 data killer? It says , " THis is a widget that allows you to stop theK9 main background sync"..

    ??

    If I have to remove my account (meaning deleting everything and going back to factory settings) then I will return the phone, I will not deal with such a hassle, I did not change any settings, my captivate is just way too unstable, you can not rely on it, sometimes the market works sometimes it does not, same with email (browser always works)

    edit: I'm now using gmail app and it's not working.

    No, I only downloaded the K9 mail client... I find that there is a lot more granularity in the settings of K9 mail than with the stock mail client.

    I have not found a need for a task killer yet... but then again I only have this phone since the 18th... Not done testing and there are a lot of things I need to customize and tweak.
