Does anyone ever have a problem with the Gmail app, where you try to send an email but the app gets stuck on the "sending" stage? The email never leaves the outbox and no other emails can be sent? I usually have to delete the draft and kill the program before I can send out emails again.

It happens in the worst times, when I'm trying to send out a critical message to someone.

Sadly, Try K9. It seems to work about as good as you're gonna get.

Look around for the manual setup. Auto won't work.

I found this elsewhere.... It's what I use on K9

Go to manual setup > IMAP account and change to these settings....

INCOMING
Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
port - 143

OUTGOING
SMTP Server- smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
port - 25


Check “Require sign-in” and press Next

Select how often your Droid will check for Email, and choose default options etc...

Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages

I have the same problem. And I can't send/receive any mail... I haver no idea what k9 and setting up yahoo won't solve the problem.

Anyone have a working solution?
