    I am using the email app that came on my Captivate and have some questions.

    1. Is there a setting that will keep the app from downloading emails that have already been downloaded and deleted?

    2. Downloading emails seems to take a long time even though I am on either 3g or 8mb wifi. Is this normal for the 2.1 os?

    3. Deleting multiple emails takes a long time. My son's Sprint Android phone deletes emails instantly. I believe his phone also has 2.1 os.

    4. Is there a way to select "all messages" in the Inbox Trash, or Sent folders instead of having to select them one at a time?

    Do any of you use another email app that you feel is superior to the standard program? I know some users like the k9 program; however, other people say it is s-l-o-w.

    Thanks

    I've moved your thread to the captivate forum, where you should get some better answers :)

    Several Questions about IMAP email setup. For my smtp server setting I am using cwmx.com port 25. When I use godaddy's smtp setting, the email will not send any email.
    Why is this happening?
    The cwmx.com only works when I am on 3G. If I have WIFI turned on, the email ends up in the draft folder instead of being sent. Why is this also happening?

    Thank you for your answers.

    Ruben: best to start your own thread for your different questions and not hijack someone else's thread.

    retnuh: I found the stock email app to be insufficient right away and immediately installed K-9. It does everything I want it to do and more. At first I found some missing features/annoyances but an update a few weeks later addressed all of them.

    I use an IMAP email provider, though. Users of POP (which was never meant for shared access) may have less-than-ideal experiences using K-9 or any other email client. POP sucks.

    As far as your questions, as they apply to K-9:

    1) Not an issue with IMAP. For a POP3 setup there should be a setting to remove from server when downloading. How many clients do you have checking this account?

    2) Sounds like an issue with your email provider.

    3) same as #2

    4) Menu -> Select all
