    I am new to the Android platform, getting my Droid X yesterday. I had no trouble setting up four mailboxes, and am sending and receiving mail seamlessly.

    There is one bizarre thing: if I read a message on my phone, the IMAP client sets the flag on the server as 'read', but if I delete the message on the Droid it is left on the server (and all my other IMAP clients.) Has anyone noticed this? I can't find a setting that would effect this behavior.

    Oh, I update my mail every 15 minutes, but the problem persists even after a manual refresh.

    Go to your mail account settings for the IMAP account and select incoming server settings. Change "Delete mail from server" from "Never" to "When I delete from inbox."

    Unfortunately, the UI doesn't have that setting in the Accounts section.

    Thanks JWB, I'll give K9 a look. It seems to be pretty popular.

    K9 deletes messages from gmail servers but you have to go to Account settings ---- Incoming server ---- scroll to Trash folder name and set it to "Gmail/Trash". From then on, when you delete a message in K9, it will be moved to Gmail/Trash (Trash folder on Gmail server).

    I have had the same problem since the first day I got the Droid X (I got it on launch day). I have called Verizon several times and have ended up creating a case with Motorola. They were complete **bleep** and of no help. Their number is 800-734-5870 if you want to try. I simply gave up because I don't have time to fight this problem anymore and attempted to move on. I have used MailDroid Pro for the most part even though right now that isn't working anymore either. I am probably going to just wait until I am due to get the iPhone and just replace this phone. Very disappointing. Otherwise, I think the phone has been great!

    Let me know if anyone gets through to Motorola to get this corrected.
