    I recently experienced a hardware problem with my Treo 700W. Verizon sent me another one, and I restored to the new one using Sprite Backup. Everything seemed to work, so I sent the broken one back to Verizon. Now I notice that there is one problem - my pop3 email account shows up on the Today screen with unread messages. However, when I click on it, nothing happens. In fact, this email account no longer shows up in the list of accounts under messaging. When I try to add a new account with this same name, I get an error that the account name is already in use.

    Can anybody help me figure out how to fix this? I am thinking there's some sort of discrepancy in the registry, and hoping that somebody understands the registry well enough to help me clean it up.

    I had the same exact problem. I never figured out how to fix the existing email account name. I just created a new one. I'm sure it left some unused mail db entries somewhere, but at least I didn't have to hard reset and reinstall all of my apps and settings which is what you'd have to do to get that email account name back.

    Same happened to me. I backed up using SPB then restored on the new device. My account is gone but must still be there because I can't recreate using the same account name. I looked everywhere for the left over files but no luck. Now I'm worried about battery drain, if it will continue to check the old sync schedule along with the new.

    I just found a post on Sprite's user forum that is people complaining about the problem. A workaround is discussed, but no fixes...

    And this admission from Sprite - remove your POP emails before backing up if you are migrating to a new device. Blech.

    Must be universal then since I use SPB Backup, not Sprite.

    Whenever I do a restore, I always uncheck the MAIL (text and email) sync portion. They ALWAYS seem to screw up the client. When I did it with my PPC-6600 I wouldn't be able to get text messages after I restored. It's just some registry issues.
