    It could be coincidence, but I noticed my phone was becomming very slow and non responsive. I was trying to figure out what I might have installed that could be causing the slowdown. I took a look at tasks in the Android System Info app and noticed maildroid would pop to the top of my CPU usage. I uninstalled maildroid, replaced with Akihiko, and my phone is running normally again. And, by slow I mean the power button wasn't responsive, scrolling through apps would freeze for a while, opening emails was slow, etc. Anyone else have this issue?

    The samsung captivate is better than the orginal droid and incredible that I am using (where it works fine), CPU would not be the issue here and memory would. Version 1.35 had a memory leak that was finally patched in version 1.41. Please make sure you have the latest version.

    Thanks for the response. Actually I had 1.4.1 (that just came out a couple of days ago, right?), that might have been when my problems started. It was a weird problem, and I was surprised that removing the app fixed it. So far, since I just uninstalled last night, all day today the phone is working like a champ. I'm still not 100% sure it's your app, but so far it's looking that way (or maybe it was a configuration I had within the app).

    That sounds very odd. I can only guess that you had a POP account and you had it set to pull every minute (or at a very low number). Does that sound right?

    I have 3 (Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail). I believe I had them pull every 5 minutes.

    I might try it again later to see if I can reproduce.
