    Would anyone know why my Droid X would know about an email address I have never used with my droid or any other account for that matter? I haven't had this account or used it in about 9+ years. However, my current address is the same with the exception of the @domain.com. I've never linked this account to anything so I have no idea why it would come up.

    So for instance, I stated typing my current email to send myself a link. And it auto populates with the old ass earthlink account I had once upon a time.

    Anythoughts?

    was that old email address still in your contacts list or address book when you imported all your contacts to the phone?

    thats the only way I can think of on how it might have happened

    Dumb question, but did you ever set it up to forward email to your gmail account?

    @james515 - Nope.. Haven't used the old email address with any phones. Sorry if I didn't mention that. Thanks

    @dreadnatty08 - Nope, I was thinking that as well; but I didn't.

    It's really weird.

    Quick question, are these coming in through the Gmail app or stock/blur Email app?

    Messaging, via my verizon account. I ditched Earhlink and went with Verizon, so I never would have linked the two. I will have to check though to make sure and rule it out.

    --------
    Checked and Nothing on my verizon. The Verizon account points to another gmail account so and vice-versus, so I am at a lost at this moment.
