    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone have issues when composing an email in the stock email app that when you get to the second line of your email the cursor position starts to automatically move around and select autowords??

    I know it sounds strange but it is sickly annoying. Never had the issue on my S3, now it is killing my S4.

    I use SwiftKey keyboard but it also happens with the stock keyboard whether portrait or landscape position.

    And help you be MUCH APPRECIATED as this is stopping me from composing emails.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm a UK user on EE and received a firmware update this morning. Since installing said update my email app has started doing the same thing.
    I mentioned this on here before and was advised to do a factory reset.

    My advice would be to ignore the stock email app. I don't have the S4 yet, but on my S2, the stock email app was complete junk. Try using another email app such as K-9 Mail. I bet those issues go away.

    Never had a S2 but the app on the S4 is just an update of the version on the S3 which is pretty decent imo.
    I have 3 hotmail accounts running through it and I can browse all folders on each account.
    Can you do the same with K-9 ?

    I think so. But I only have one email account on mine, so I could be speculating incorrectly. I just know that the stock email app when I got the S2 was complete and total junk. I had the problem of it constantly downloading emails, then getting rid of them (whether I had read them or not, deleted them or anything else), then downloading them all over again. It got pretty tiresome checking 40-50 emails 4-5 times a day. K-9 has eliminated that nonsense. Maybe that stock email app got better with the introduction of the S3. It was just the first thing I thought of when I heard that there were issues with it on the S4.
