    I setup one of my pop3 accounts to read from my phone...but very sporadically it marks all the messages I've already read or deleted as new. I go...open them all...set them to delete from server when I delete them...then 5 minutes later it appears again.

    This is only happening on my POP3 account...Gmail/Exchange isn't having this problem.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Same problem here with my earthlink account. It's real annoying.

    I have found that mine keep coming back if I delete them right away. If I wait a few hours before I delete an email, the Droid wont download it again.

    It probably uses a really basic algorithm to determine if it's downloaded a message or not. Maybe something along the lines of if(message_time<time_now-30 && !On_handset){download message;}.
