Significant email problem with Moto Droid

I have had major problem with my Road Runner email on my Driod for over a month now.

 

First, but not least is the email configuration has been lost two times.  No problem with gmail, just Road Runner.  Have had to setup the account from scratch twice.

 

Second, I cannot not get the outgoing RR mail to work.  I have checked and checked the configuration.

 

Third, lots of my email appear again and again after i've deleted it.

 

Fourth, I have a lot of email that the subject and person from is from one email and the body is the email body of another email.  Yes, please read this again.  If i keed these email and let them come into my PC, the email is correct.

 

Fifth,  And to make this worse some email that I had sent out (but not sent oiut because of #2 above) contained different email bodies.  Thank goodnes the mail did not go out that way with junk in the body that is from who knows where. 

 

Never had these problems with the Blackberry.  I am really getting sick of this.  I did go to a Verizon office last week and after some calls to somewhere was told there a problems nationwide with the email for this phone.

 

Your comments or direction would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend trying K9Mail from the Market (I've used the "beta" version)  It seems to work correctly.  Hopefully the default client will be fixed with the 2.1 update.

I have had major problem with my Road Runner email on my Driod for over a month now.

Sorry, can't help with this one. I haven't had the problem. I set the account up once, and it's fine. I do have to go in and manually delete items in the trash. If I don't, incoming mail stops. I assume there's an unstated memory limit.

 

Second, I cannot not get the outgoing RR mail to work.  I have checked and checked the configuration.

RR doesn't allow use of their outgoing server when you're not connected via RR. The same is true when I try to send mail from my laptop. The solution: if you have another account setup on your phone, use that server (i.e. smtpout@gmail.com, or whatever) to send mail.  

 

The problem with this solution is the return address is now the one attached to the alternate server.

 

Third, lots of my email appear again and again after i've deleted it.

This happens to me too. Not sure why. I can stop this by either opening the mail on my desktop, or accessing the mail via a browser and deleting it.

 

Fourth, I have a lot of email that the subject and person from is from one email and the body is the email body of another email.  Yes, please read this again.  If i keed these email and let them come into my PC, the email is correct.

Never had either four or five happen.
