    Same here, it's not on Gmail but on yahoo. Oddly, yahoo does not show it in the inbox but in the deleted folder. I deleted the delete on yahoo and still no luck on the Droid, it's still there.

    on phone, msn account shows that there is one item in deleted folder...when viewing the folder there is no item and there is no was to clear that item (delete and/or refresh does nothing).

    Does AOL use POP3 for its e-mail?

    won't delete, always comes back as new, read or not read random ones are still new. eventually won't check email automatically, has to be done manually. won't open emails, hangs forever....on and on and unacceptable. Verizon told me it was a problem with Pop3 on my Yahoo business mail account in particular - that this issue was with Yahoo.

    I have a gmail account because they created it at the store (my husband bought my phone) so I click the link above and can log it but how do I STAR the issue??? Sorry, just don't see this option and I need to report this. This has to be resolved or I need to return the phone.

    after you log in there should be a star on the left hand side. just click on it to make it gold.

    I really want this to be fixed to. :)

    +1 Just click on star to make it gold and that will do the trick. It is surprising that Google hasn't fixed this already. Almost seems like they don't want to fix it.

    This reply is too late to help those who originally posted but may help others who run across the same problem. It requires having at least one email account other than the one with problems.
    1) Make sure your "good" account is default (when this account is being viewed go to settings and mark it as default if it isn't already)
    2) Delete the "bad" account
    3) Create new account (recreate the account you just deleted)

    This works even if you have calendars and other things connected to the account you deleted because by the time they re-sync the account will be back on your phone. You can manually re-sync if you want just to check.
    I did it with an IMAP account, POP3 will work but may require re-managing old files after you re-create account
