    I have a windows live email account for my school, but when I try to set it up using HTC's mail app it always says something about the server not responding. Also, I have an AOL email account and that set-up went fine with the same app, but I can't see any of my old emails, only the new ones just coming in are visible.

    I set up my Gmail account and everything works there no problem. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks in advance.

    Not sure on the Windows Live e-mail that you're trying to set up, but if you open up your AOL e-mail do the following:

    Touch Menu
    Select More
    Select Settings
    Touch Send & Receive
    Select Download options
    Select By days under Download options and then select All at the bottom, this should bring in all of your old e-mails.

    If you go to settings> more>send&receive you can display all of your emails or just the number of days.

    took me a few tries also. this is actually rather handy though. Gmail keeps archives and old emails in the oddest way. i keep my gmail set at 3 days, as i am filtering out all the old stuff through the web interface, that i found from 2005!!!
