This is a software problem, (I write this to help all those that have been doing factory resets). After reading some of the posts it became clear that this had to do with the native email client that comes with the droid.
For those of us who understand UNIX, this was probably a daemon(service) that kept crashing trying to deliver email.
If someone has another good email client they recommend I'd be grateful.
Try K9 mail, its been most users perferrred email app replacement app.
