    Out of the blue my Eris stopped getting emails from my personal email account hosted by Godaddy, I deleted and set up the accounts several times and it works momentarily then stops again. Only thing that has changed is I work in a building that gets poor reception, other than that everything else is the same. Please help. If I can't get my email to pull I am probably going to get rid of the device despite liking the OS.

    could this be something on GoDaddys end? Have you tried taking the phone outside (smoke break :dft012:wink)and seeing if it will work there?

    is the error you are getting an Unable to Conect to server? If so, see if these setting work:
    SMTP Server: smtpout.secureserver.net
    Security type: none
    port: 25
    Require sign in is checked
    Username
    password

    I'm not even going to go into the list of problems I've had with godaddy webmail. They're great for domains, but horrible hosting. Check out this link though, looks helpful -- http://help.godaddy.com/article/4906

    Nah, I don't even get any errors. It simply just never pulls emails. I wiped my device back to factory and set the account back up, let's hope it works. I am going to send a test email from my iPhone which has 6 godaddy accounts, and pulls them all fine without a problem. I even set up the account that didn't work on the Eris on the iPhone and it worked fine there so I don't see it as a GoDaddy issue. Let me see how the test email goes. :)

    Also, I set my accounts using SSL, so I use port 995 incoming and 465 outgoing.

    The iPhone does a really good job of setting things like that up smoothly, that's why I have one :)

    Thanks, I actually already have that link bookmarked. I even included it in my initial support email to GoDaddy so that they DON'T send me there and can do further troubleshooting off the bat. In the end they say they found now error on their end (I assume they have a android device they tested it on, but I doubt that lol), they closed the ticket under the guise that it's a Android problem and they don't support 3rd party configuration issues.

    That it does, I am really really trying to give Android a chance though. But it is letting me down as a developer and a user.

    The fact that it's all open source did it for me, from a developer standpoint. I carry the iPhone and a Droid (soon an Incredible) Honestly the Eris isn't the greatest Android device either. It's hardware is inferior to the Droid by a long shot.

    yeah, the Eris is sorta crappy. But it was cheap and I detest the Droid (not a fan of sliders). I will definately pick up a Nexus One once it hit's verizon shelves. But, Android has a loooooooooong way to go before it becomes number one again on my list of platforms to develop on. Currently it's 3rd behind the iPhone OS and Palm's webOS. I can't take the fragmentation of OSes and devices. Get it togther Google! I'd even pay an additional $74 to my developers fee to get a Apple-esque SDK. The cheap $25 fee you currently pay to be a Android developer is nice but Apple and Palm charge $99 and their SDK's are less painful to develop on then Android's.

    My email stopped working again, my time with the Eris may end here. I have to have my email.
