if you have other types of accounts (POP or IMAP), as I do, be careful
to delete just the "exchange" directories.

After this Evo will be slow to start the first time as it recreates the
inbox cache, and the first delete will also be slow as it recreates the
deleted items folder cache.  But, it should solve all your connectivity

Thanx for this tip!  It's been a life saver.

These days I have to do this every few days, mainly due to this bug:

which is still happening consistently even on the very latest SVN

I seem to have to do it at least once a week.

It's... less than satisfactory.
