    I have a pop3 account on Xmission, If I set up the Droid to get messages from my xmission account it somehow creates a situation on my desktop. My desktop mail account then shows an error when it tries to retrieve the mail. The error is the account name. Somehow it shows as incorrect. If I go into account setting and reset the account name and erase my pop3 account on the Droid then everything is OK. Except I am not getting the email on the Droid. I have tried the Droid email and K9 without any luck.
    How about some suggestions.
    Thanks for the help.

    Is the Droid connected to the PC when this happens?

    Are you doing a manual setup on the Droid? Try not to, but if you get an invalid username/password, have you tried putting in the full email address for the username?
