    I am having email problems and wanted someones input who knows how the email works on the X.

    I have a Gmail, Yahoo and Pacbell email accounts setup on my phone. Recently I have had problems with them receiving email. I would have email in each inbox-verified by desktop computer-but going into the inbox on my X it only showed old email. It doesn't seem to be syncing or pulling emails. So I hit the refresh button and after a while, the emails would sync. Now it has gotten to a point that hitting the sync button does nothing, the red circle just spins forever. Any ideas?

    Things Tried-clear cache, pull battery, remove and reinstall accounts.

    I was having so many issues with the stock email program not receiving emails that I gave up on it and downloaded K9 Email. It's been a while (like September?), so I can't remember how difficult the setup was.

    I recently installed the 3.403 version, and it seems rather stable.

    It has a lot of options, so you can configure just about anything...like font size for every item, color coding accounts, and having a different color blink on the LED based on which account receives the email. You can also set it to "delete from server" when you delete from phone.

    K-9 is the way to go.

    I'd call the Moto email app an abortion of a program, but to have an abortion there must first be conception and its rather obvious (after hours of banging my head) that the programmers had no conception of what they were doing.

    Please check this...

    In a large blank spot on one of your home screens, push and hold till the menu comes up.
    Touch Widgets
    Scroll down and touch Power Control
    That should add a widget to that home screen with 5 options.
    From left to right...Wifi, Blutooth, GPS, Sync, and Brightness.
    Make sure the Sync (circle arrows) is highlighted

    Thanks. Sync is engaged. I hate having to install apps that fix the oem software but looks like i will have to.
