    I am having a hard time cleaning up my email. It was pretty much crippling the palm-pre. Each time I would go into the email account, it would hang and take several minutes to recover. Since I had over 11,000 items in the trash, I tried to remove that, but it would not delete the items. Let me select the remove trash button, but it did nothing.. So I resorted to trying to remove the email account, that sort of worked. Trash was going but the account was still there. I just want to remove the account and start over.. but when I ask it to remove the account, it just sits there and spins for over an hour... Any suggestions before I get desperate and give it a labotomy.. thanks.

    Access your email through a computer and delete the trash items. This will fix the hanging issues you're experiencing with your devices memory. Do a battery pull while the device is on and try again to remove the account.

    Leave it for a couple hours. It can really take that long.

    I have a dumb question why do you have 11000 pieces of email in your trash?????

    it will take a loooong time if you have lots of email and/or contacts...

    good question.. but that was what email was telling me, but I can't believe it was true. Now I will make sure it does not grow that big.
    When I went to the email provider, there was only a handful. All I could figure is that something must be turning the email into mush, cause when I opened email, it pretty much took the phone to it's knees.

    If you have any email patches try removing those.

    thanks.. deleted a couple of email patches.. started the account removal again... still can't understand how something so trivial can take so long... should take just a couple of minutes to remove an account.. or even less. Guess at this point I will let it run all night..

    Problems can also, sometimes, be cause by a corrupt email, even if it's been moved to the trash or another folder.

    I had major lag issues and glitches anytime I sent or received something to/from my roommates yahoo account. I actually put a stop to his using it to send to the gmail account that comes to my Pre.

    Just something else to check.

    well... the email account remove ran all night.. still not luck. Time to take some more drastic measures, whats the best way to flush this phone and start over ?
    Decided to overclock the pig.. after that the email account finally disappeared.. so looks like I am good now.. perhaps I will get some better performance out of the email.. thanks to everyone for there suggestions.
