    when I open the stock mail app and refresh the inbox to get new emails it sometimes downloads most of them, sometimes all of them but then displays a message that says: Alert - There is not enough free memory to download this email. Does this refer to the phone's internal storage space. It says I have 16mb. Is that really low?

    That's rather low. Might need to uninstall some apps, or clear some app caches in the settings>applications menu.

    16mb free? How many apps do you have? I agree with thenestor ... looks like you need to clear cache and possibly get rid of a few apps

    Is there one particularly large email that it's trying to download? Perhaps a file attachment? You can set it to not automatically download attachments, although I think that's already the default.

    When you go into your mail hit menu>more>settings>send and receive you will see mail size limit, hit the arrow down and it gives you choices for your mail size limit. Hope this helps. This is from 2.1.

    I'm still on 1.5. Mail size limit is set to No Limit. I checked my email on the web and everything that is there is on my phone, attatchments included.

    Ok so you went to manage apps and cleared all caches, settings is set for no limit, I am stumped. Only thing I can think of now is that you do have quite a few apps if your at 29 mb still. I am currently at 115mb. Keep playing around with the phone. You might consider deleting more apps, but its your phone and understand you have want you want on it and this may not be an option.

    I'm having a similar issue in that my stock email (associated with hotmail) seems like it can only hold 25 emails at a time. Time after time, I am getting notifications for "new" email that I have opened before and they are ALWAYS the oldest ones in my inbox (both on Droid and hotmail).

    I do not see the option of this size limit that you mention, AudiDan.

    It's getting frustrating and I don't know how to fix it. Please help!!! :eek:

    While it's not the same problem, I'm having an issue with hotmail as well - It'll chug along just fine, but every 5 or 6 days it will stop receiving new emails. Usually I have to delete the account and set it up again, but sometimes it'll start syncing again if I toggle some settings (like going from keeping 20 messages to keeping last 3 days or something). Any ideas?

    Just thought I'd ask here rather than start a whole new thread and have people mourning the death of more kittens...

    My 2nd Evo (broke screen on the first) came with SO many preinstalled apps that I have limited internal memory. I can no longer open or forward email attachments unless I delete all of my emails. Every app that can be moved to the SD card is there, I deleted trash folder, I cleared Caches :'( Can my emails or just email attachments to save to the SD card?? I don't see this as an option. Even with task killer, many many apps (Nascar, Friend Stream, etc. kill my battery and take up my internal memory. I'm scared to root. App Mgr shows a big list of running apps, more than half of which I don't know what they are (EPST, etc.). Toys are fun, but emails are business. Is it time go crawling back to Blackberry?

    You may want to try the app K9 mail. I think it's so much better than the stock mail client - at least on the Eris it is, but I suspect so on the Evo as well. You may want to ask questions about the Evo in that forum, though.
