Yet another problem with the mostly great, but sometimes clunky Android OS on my Motorola Droid. Whenever I opened the Email app, it would kick up a Fatal Error:
The application Email (process com.android.email) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
So the application wouldn’t open, and I couldn’t get to my email. Reboots didn’t do a thing. Neither did reconfiguring email. Luckily I found a solution.
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Tap Applications.
3. Tap Manage Applications.
4. Press Menu.
5. Tap Filter.
6. Tap All.
7. Tap Email.
8. Tap Clear data. (Yep! It will wipe out all of your account data. You should be able to rebuild it fine though.)
9. Tap OK on the warning.
10. Go back into the Email app and setup your email account again. It should work just fine.
