    Hi there,
    I dont have push mail in hero configured nor have I ever touched that application.
    I only use the built in gmail application to send and receive mails.
    When I installed Taskiller, I noticed that I have this "Mail" process which is always there! if I kill it, after a few minutes, it will come back.
    So far I cant seem to isolate the problem and I am quite clueless about why this application is there, because it takes about 3 mb of memory.

    any help?
    thanks a lot,
    Eli.

    even though you kill it do you have it set to check mail every 5min? So it might be re opening just for that?

    Even I never touched this push mail portion in HERO. But I noticed as soon as I open "People" widget, this one starts and appear in Task Manager.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    I was using Task Killer & concerned about this app and that app consuming memory. After reading some other threads, I decided to ditch TK and leave the Android OS to manage memory as designed......don't worry about it now & I have not felt any adverse effects on the phone (i.e. sluggish, etc).

    I may get the Force Close Button app at some point though.
