Sometimes when I open email the screen is horizontal while holding the phone vertical.
Is there any way to prevent that or control the screen direction.
It doesn't change when I rotate the phone.
Did you try restarting the phone... square+Sym+R

I get the same thing on my phone often too. No fix for this issue yet that I can find.
I think it remembers the last orientation. Leaving your Gmail app open seems to help.
