    Hi -

    I get the gist that POP3 isn't wonderfully supported with the Droid, but I want to keep using both anyway. I believe the story goes like this: around April 7 when I returned to USA and turned on my Droid and a system update was installed. This is the update that brought us pinch-zoom. Seems to me that there was some error message during the update. I've tried to check for further updates and the message is that my phone is up to date. I *think* (maybe, just maybe) that the POP3 email trouble started then. The problem is that many times the phone cannot retrieve new emails, unless I power cycle the phone. It will just hang with "loading messages". I'm using the native email application; I tried K-9 last fall but decided I like the native email application better.

    Suggestions? My email server is pop.fatcow.com (my web hoster's service).

    Thanks, RalphE
