TF3D major mail problem

I've had my TP2 since September and it's been working fine, flashed with EnergyROM recently and liked it more.

However, I've now run into the same problem twice and this second time, has basically made the phone non-functional.

I have my email accounts set to hold 7 days worth of mail. I don't need any more on my phone, I just want to see new messages. What has happened is, for some reason that is completely against the settings of the mail account, it will download all the email in my Yahoo account.

Since I save all my email, that's 12,000 messages. That ate up all my on-board storage and made the phone a slug.

The first time, I was able to delete the email account in TF3D and recreate it. The second time, the selection to get to the Options to delete the account is unselectable and after trying to find a way around that, the phone, for all intensive purposes, locked up so I had to reboot.

That was a half hour ago. The phone is still trying to load TF3D (says Launching HTC Sense, as I'm using manilla 2.5). I can actually load other WinMo apps but the shell which has all my phone numbers and everything is still loading.

This is infuriating. Why would it go against the setting and download every message? TF3D is trying to load that email account and who knows when it'll be done. All the while it's burning battery. After a half hour, I'm down to 75% from a full charge. Will it even have enough juice to load TF3D?

I can load mocha FTP (edit: nevermind, it says my network isn't enabled yet.... grr) so if someone knows what manilla files house the email accounts, please tell me so I can nuke them. At this point, I don't care if it breaks TF3D. I just want my phone working again. Thanks for your help.

Re: TF3D major mail problem

your gonna have to wait for all that email before it starts i think.. everyone seems to say the less messages and emails, the faster it loads.. so id think youd have a bit of waiting to do... also, if your phone is in current send/recieve, option to delete will be grayed out till its done..

you can always hard reset and make an .xml to provision your email accounts and itll follow how it want it for sure that way

Re: TF3D major mail problem

Send/receive must have been why it was greyed out, everytime I went to the email list it would say "Looking for Changes" (something it never says when checking for mail btw). I must have triggered some bug that makes it ignore settings and went into overdrive.

The phone just shut off after an hour so I had to start the process all over again. I'm thinking when I get home, I'm going to have to reflash Energy to get a working cellphone again.

I moved all the messages to a separate folder. Maybe now the problem will correct itself? Still very maddening. This phone does everything it can to make me not like it.

Re: TF3D major mail problem

This happens to me whenever I first set up my email. It will download up to the number of days I set, but then it will check all of the headers without downloading.

Once in a blue moon, I won't get any emails for a whole day and it will just say "connecting" or "disconnecting" when I choose send/receive. When it finally starts working again for whatever reason, it goes through all the emails again as if I just set it up.

The trick I use to speed this up when I first set up my email is to connect it to my computer so that it is using my computer's internet connection. It significantly speeds up the amount of time it takes to download my messages and check all the headers.

Based on your description, this doesn't seem to be the same case as yours, but if you were mistaken, this might help.

I'm using Energy but this happened before when I was on stock so it's definitely not Energy. Of course, the increase in ram/cpu consumption because of manilla 2.5 seemed to exacerbate the problem.

It's a push email and I love it normally but my phone right now is basically bricked... except I got a call before with no issue. So right now all I can do is receive calls. The mind reels.

It has turned itself off (or lagged so bad that I couldn't turn the screen on) several times so the process has gone nowhere. I will probably reflash the phone when I get home, assuming I can get ActiveSync up long enough to reflash.

Re: TF3D major mail problem

Bump. Has anyone a solution to this? I too had set just a few days to download ( 3 ) and it ignored it and downloaded all my headers ( 3000 ) I thought my SOD problem had returned. I tried creating new folders and 'archiving' mail there but it looks like it may re-create the folders found in Yahoo on the phone! If no one has an answer I guess I'm off to Verizon, ha!

Well, after nosing around I found under Mail>Menu>Tools>Manage Folders the ability to exclude / include certain mail folders from syncing and how many days of mail you want on the synced ones. This seems to be working, so far....

Is it a Yahoo account? Also clean out your inbox and use folders, that way you should not run into the issue again.

yeppers. Just moved all old mail to archive folders and made sure that the phone didn't have them selected for syncing. Not that big a deal really, was just weird that it took over a month to go wonky.

Ya, seems like Yahoo has issues for some reason and it's totally random. I stopped using Yahoo many many years ago when I got my gmail account.
