    I have been trying to gfigure out the following but to no avail:

    1) how do you select multiple items? multiple emails to delete is the main thing, i get these annoying notifications from mail security about viruses, etc and i like to keep them deleted, they usually come in batches of a few. one at a time, having to wait a second for the long press on each is annoying and cumbersome and i am convinced i am missing something.

    2) how to disable capacitive buttons when playing games? ARGH! How many times i cant tell you i have messed up a hand of poker by brushing my hand on the buttons which are soooo sensitive and losing a pair of aces with a flop of 2 aces kind of thing!

    3) A gesture to switch between browser windows? i figured swipe left and right made sense but HTC didnt. no pun intended.

    4) Possible to call contacts using voice dial some how? it seems like long press of the search cap button works in rare occasions but few and far between.

    I cant think of the rest. thanks.

    Bandroid- 1. I found that when you're in mail, press menu and the delete option comes up. press that, then select the mails you want to have deleted... that should solve that issue.
    2. I have NO idea.
    3. Hit the menu button again when browsing, then select windows and you'll get smaller ones to select from. Dunno if that answers your issue...
    4. I tried the voice dial app, used it to call anyone in my contacts... it worked... not sure if it's the same feature you're using?

    Ok, I made a custom scene, and saved it with a name, however when I turned off my phone and then turned it back on again, it disappeared and came up with a mutated version of my original scene. Any tips?

    Also, how do I delete saved scenes that are either mutated, or that I am not using anymore?

    one question. what is the exhange domain name mean?
    It's the FQDN of your Exchange server. For example: myexchangeserver.mycompanyname.com.
    I know this is two months late, but I wanted to point out that this is generally true, but not always. I work with a large university and our FQDN is in the format of "OWASERVERNAME.UNIVERSITYNAME.EDU", but our domain is literally "AD", which is short for "Active Directory". This is likely only going to affect about 1% of users, but it's enough that it may be useful to someone.

    Along the same lines, be sure the email address you are entering is not an email alias. My username is my last name plus my first and middle initials, but if you were to send and email to my firstname.lastname@myuniversity.edu, I would still get it, however, if I use firstname.lastname@myuniversity.edu as my assigned email address, the ActiveSync setup will fail.

    Yes, you can.
    Can you explain how to do this?

    I am using Android 2.2 on my Nexus One. I use the standard Android email app to connect to my company Exchange server via ActiveSync. All that works.

    When I attempt a search (from the home screen or within the email app), the options are web, contacts or (text) messages. There seems to be no way to search Exchange email.

    Im using 2.1 on my Hero. I open the mail app, hit the search button (magnifying glass) and type in my query. it then only shows me the emails that have that keyword in them.

    OK, I've looked and can't find the answer. This has started recently on my htc droid incredible. My gmail works just fine sending and receiving emails. However, my POP email recently has stopped sending and receiving emails. It seems like it works find when I'm at home connected to my wifi just doesn't work when I'm on the verizon network. any ideas?

    I am having an issue using the "Company Lookup" feature with Exchange Active Sync on my Incredible. Every lookup I do creates a new contact for the person I look up. I am using Exchange 2007. Is this normal behavior? Is there a setting that controls this? I would prefer to not have this happen.

    Thanks for any help or information you can provide.

    Yahoo Mail FAQ:
    ....
    *****Update on WiFi Access (thanks iman)***

    When you add a new account, select IMAP under the protocol menu>enter your email>enter your user name which is your email>enter your password>for IMAP server enter: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com>security type is SSL>server port is 993

    then hit next

    for SMTP server enter android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com>security type will be SSL> server port will be 465

    Now your email will sync even if wifi is on.
    I have followed these instructions on an HTC Aria with stock 2.1 and i get the error "Login Failed". When I toggle off wifi, it works fine. Any suggestions (other than keep wifi off, and use the yahoo app?)

    I am using a pop3 mail account. When i delete emails on my incredible they are moved to the trash folder. Is there a way to "empty" my trash folder without having to hit menu>delete and then clicking on individual emails?

    Second, i use outlook on my pc. I can move emails into folders i create ala advertising, family and other such things. Is there a mail app i can create folders and move emails to those folders to save and look up quickly?

    Thanks

    Have you considered using IMAP instead of POP? IMAP is better for multi-device email use where you want everything to look the same.

    Does Comcast support IMAP and will this allow me to make folders or does it just mimic my setup on my computer?

    Ditto. I would love to not have to keep going to Comcast directly to delete the emails a second time.

    Former Blackberry User FAQ:

    Question:

    Does Android offer a unified Inbox similar to Blackberry?

    Answer:

    No it does not. This may seem disorienting and/or frustrating at first, but after continued use, most uses adjust without any problems.
    Can an application like Touchdown solve this problem?

    I have 100+ folders under my Inbox that I automatically route messages to. Not being able to see these messages unless I go to each individual folder is not a workable solution.

    Any help or suggestions (other than don't do that) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    George

    Is there any way to get email notification on the Incredible for all folders, not just the top-level inbox? I use Exchange, and I have to open every folder to check if I have new email. There's got to be a better way!

    Thanks.

    You may want to ask the Admin at your school. I tried setting up my email and it had to be done manually. for server i needed mail.companyname.com and for domain i needed companyname.org

    I've seen the write up for the incoming/outgoing settings for Gmail, yahoo, etc, but what about bellsouth accounts? I think bellsouth was bought by att and has some involvment with yahoo, but my email address is still *********@bellsouth.net. I've been getting my incoming fine, but can't set up my outgoing to allow me to send. Any advice for the settings for outgoing messages?

    Thanks!

    Solution here. Scroll down to the bottom. Worked for me!!!
    Bellsouth Email Settings? - Android Forums

    Basically, this is what I did:
    Incoming mail server type: POP3
    Incoming (POP): pop.att.yahoo.com
    Incoming User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. yourname @ bellsouth.net, no spaces please, just trying to avoid posting an email)
    Incoming mail port #: 995, secure connection (SSL) checked

    Outgoing (SMTP): smtp.att.yahoo.com, with authentication (same user and password as POP)
    Outgoing User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. yourname @ bellsouth.net)
    Outgoing mail port # 465, secure connection (SSL) checked

    I was connected to wifi at the time I set it up.

    Anyone had success setting up their POP email account thru this ISP ?

    -- I'm using Outlook 2010
    -- email address is username@nc.rr.com
    -- Incoming Server is: pop-server.nc.rr.com
    -- Outgoing server is: smtp-server.nc.rr.com

    I've had a BlackBerry for almost 4 years and email just works - why doesn't Android OS set up & handle POP email as simply and reliably as BIS ??

    (Sorry for the rant - I love the Droid Inc w/ widgets & browser but this email fubar has me so totally frustrated that I may have to go to the Storm 2....)
