    Ever since I updated to 2.1 beta I have been inundated with "New Email" notifications.

    I have 4 email addresses and facebook messages set up in the app.

    My Pb keeps pulling in messages (hundreds of them) even after I had marked them as "Read". The messages are often from a couple of years ago.

    I also get a message telling me to "Connect to Wi-Fi to send and receive messages. Click here to connect." even though I am already connected to wi-fi.

    The app is also slower than it used to be in general and crashing more often than in 2.0.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Thanks

    If you have thousands of tweets, FB notifications, emails and so on ... it will be long. Very long. Marking them as read is - probably - totally unusefull until all got synced. I'd personally deactivate most of the accounts and reactivate them one by one, after each sync finished.

    One of the issue you describe has plagued people prior to this OS release, namely the emails reverting to unread. I experienced it every day and after this beta install it went away, however I now get the WiFi connect message you mentioned. This is why they call it a Beta!

    Had the wifi connect thing on 2.0.1.358 the last couple of weeks then on 2.1 until I did a security wipe to resolve a laggy keyboard and problems streaming flash video. Now everything works great again.

    I may try doing a complete wipe if this problem persists. Currently it only happens every few days but its still annoying nonetheless.

    Don't have any of these issues on the 2.1 beta. I would suggest either a security wipe, or a debrick with a backup to completely reload the OS to fresh.

    I have had none of these issues either. The only issue I seem to be having is the inconsistency of the auto correct/suggest line above the keyboard. But this is an issue in 2.0 as well. I would love to see an update to get this working with virtual keyboard as well as the bt ones.

    I had the same issues with 2.1, I rolled back to 2.0.1 and don't have them anymore.

    I found the messages app the worst part of 2.1

    I do hope someone at RIM monitors this forum for feedback from all kinds of users and uses it to fix issues. Otherwise having it available for a lot that will not bother to post findings in the beta zone does them no good.

    My PB did that from day ONE for my POP accounts. It's not a 2.1 related issue.

    Android email can also be launched from Ghost Commander (in app world) --Applications/Email/Shortcuts/Email-Main.. But, more to the point, when I updated, my one POP email account showed 2700 unread emails. Eventually, I fixed things by, using my desktop computer, accessing this account, creating a new folder called "Old Email", and moving all my messages out of my inbox and into this new folder. Using this method, I could move 100 messages at a time with only two clicks. Doing this got rid of all the unread messages on my PB.
