I've got a Samsung Captivate running K-9 Mail.  It could definitely have
some bugs.  Sometimes if I delete a message on my phone, I'll see it
show up in the Trash folder but not disappear from the folder it was
deleted from.  It's just not consistent. but it is better than it was

I'll look in the logs and see if I see anything interesting.

Thanks again,
