I can say 1.39 finally fixed the bugs from the past couple of versions where it would still show the messages even though you did delete them. Now my question is when the phone is in sleep mode/locked mode, I got up this morning, and usually it would show all my e-mails but now it is not loading everything on the mail server.. What could be the problem? Is it the sleep mode causing this problem?

Yes, it started right after I installed today's update. I deleted and reinstalled the hotmail account, which didn't help, but now that I've rebooted it seems to be showing current emails.

Edit: I should note that it did make an odd selection of 100 emails, some current and some going back to 2003, that came up as "unread", but it didn't take too long to get them marked as read, and now all seems well.

The new system works a bit differently. It will 'sync' the new mail that comes in and does not make a live connection (and it also stores headers locally). So, when you woke up the phone, it did start the push/pull and then when it got new mail it started the process of making sure it sync'd with the headers in the db (if it needed to). This takes a few more seconds (especially if you have a ton of mail).
Had you left sleep mode on (for at least the wake-up option). Then you would have seen all your mail.
This brings me to a question. I have the wakeup option set for 15 minutes. However, in the case you mentioned you may want it to wake up every 3 hours at night. Do you guys want me to add a wakeup time interval option so that you can define longer than 15 minutes?

@maildroiddev - Sorry to cross post...

... My laptop is my main email access point and my DroidX is my secondary. I need an option to (download all messages to my phone) and "Leave messages on the server" for my laptop to download them when I have time/access. Because of this, I have a related need to delete the messages from my phone ONLY.
My problem now is that MailDroid 1.41 appears to download the messages (well at least the headers) to my phone, but if my laptop comes in behind and downloads those same messages (the laptop download messages and deletes them from server), the messages appear to get deleted from my phone as well.
For various reasons, this is a problem. I may not have time to deal with a particular message while my laptop is connected (or I may forget it is connected) and when I have time, I only have access to my phone... but it no longer has the message on it.
To be clear, when my laptop downloads the messages and deletes them from my POP3 account, the messages also are being deleted from MailDroid. I assume it has something to do with the way MailDroid is doing its mail sync?
I hope I have explained what I'm looking for. It appears as though this rewrite of MailDroid may do what I need, but I'm having problems getting it configured.
Thanks for such a great app!

Do you have any idea when/if you might be able to address this? It is really reducing the utility of the program. FWIW, it appears that this is a pretty basic function since it has been a part of Netscape/Mozilla since before the Thunderbird days.
Hmmm, MailDroid does have the ability to actually download the emails to the local phone rather than just accessing them on the server, right? I just don't understand why the the emails keep getting deleted on the phone by MailDroid.
I'm SO confused...

First off - Terrific app. I have tried several email apps since I picked up my Droid and Maildroid is the best by far.
I have a question about the auto suggest for the email address while composing. Is there any way to clear that? I am pulling in address from any email sent to me and I only need them from my contacts. Having the ability to clear once in awhile would be great.
Thanks again for the great app.

I saw this on news.com - "Exchange ActiveSync, which will let Hotmail users get push e-mail on cell phones and other devices, will become available on Monday." Does that help with any issues people might be having with Hotmail? Is this a better fix than POP3? According to the article, "Hotmail customers have long been looking for IMAP or other enhanced syncing capabilities. Mehta said that ActiveSync offers a more robust option and, when combined with POP access, should give most Hotmail users the syncing capabilities they are looking for."
Just wanted to mention this for the next update :-)
edit: Not 100% sure if there is a fee for Active Sync (I think there is)

maildroiddev has mentioned before that active sync requires a very expensive license, so unless the hotmail "version" of it is stripped down and free idk if it will make an appearance here.

Just a suggestion. (as if you needed more..lol) Given the many recent and postive updates of application. It might be a good idea to post a link that outlines the various versions of the application and the documented fixes that are corrected. To be honest, I'm starting to loose track as to what the "latest" version is...and what has been resolved or not. Again, just my .2 cents.
