Hi

After updating Android to 2.2 Froyo, I noticed that my daily amount of downloaded data increased. After some days of experimenting, I think I have found the e-mail sync to be the reason. Before the 2.2 update, NetCounter reported around 300 kb of downloaded data a day when I was not using any “internet apps”. After the update, it is around 1500 kb. I sync to e-mail accounts: A personal IMAP once an hour and an Exchange account by push. Setting the Exchange account to sync every hour doesn’t affect the result much. However, if I disable sync of the two accounts, it’s reduced to < 100 kb a day.

Today I also noticed that after opening my Exchange account which haven’t been synced for 1½ day, it immediately used 600 kb. Considering that only 6-7 mails were added, this seems very strange to me. I get the impression that only headers were downloaded prior to 2.2, but now the entire body, including some attachments, are downloaded when synching.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior? I know 1500 kb doesn’t seem like a lot, but my company only pays for a fairly small amount of traffic, so a 5 times increase shows Happy

That's interesting to note, I and many others have noticed how slow email is in Froyo, and we feel it something to do with no mail being cached, and instead the entire mailbox being re-synched every time you do something, ie delete an email, send an email, read an email, etc...

So your observations have now only compounded the going theory there, which is really dissapointing.

So not only is email about 10 times slower than Eclaire, it uses 5 times the data too! Terrible!

I seem to have been spared most of the e-mails application speed issues. While synchronization speed might have dropped a bit, I haven’t noticed any major slowdowns when opening the client or handling e-mails. Do you (and others with the same problem) also experience this when connected to WiFi or is it only when on a mobile network (which would make sense if the two things are related)?

Exchange Email app shows the very same painful slow behavior either 3G or wlan connection.
Just an addition to decreased speed and increased data transfer: I see very intensive CPU usage (60-80%) in task manager while email app is dying.

Not only more data, but worse battery also: setting the Email retrieval update interval to anything else than 'Never' results in a continious 10% CPU load, even while the phone is asleep, draining the battery two times faster than in Eclair 2.1

I set it to 'Never', or have Tasker kill the Email app x seconds after Display Off

Determined by using System Panel app.

After updating to Froyo, my email app hangs all the time. After starting the app, sync is started, but then the app is not respondig anymore. after a while I get the option to Kill or to wait. The latter doesn't seem to help (the same message appears after a while). Now I CAN'T USE MY MAIL ANYMORE.
It seems also to impact my calander (which is linked to the same account I use for my mail-app). It hangs all the time and I can't access my external, synced agenda.
Froyo is NOT a mayor improvement...
Are there any fixes known??

Try this:
- a factory reset....., No really, factory resetting makes Froyo perform much better. Reported by many Galaxy users (including me)
- set the retrieval interval to "Never"or "Push", not to a time schedule (i.e. 15 minutes)
- Look into "Improved Email" at http://www.mwebster.us/: ability to sync specific subfolders, hide subfolders, apply color of your choice to the account. Tip: first delete exisiting Exchange account and setup a new account from within the improved email app

My email is also dead slow, unusable. Support at Samsung UK are saying that I need to revert to previous firmware because of incompatibilities with my phone provider. 3 days in a workshop.
Not happy.

Yes, I have received my new Galaxy S on Sunday and was surprised today by a SMS from my Service Provider that I have used 70% of my data bundle. (I had configure my e-mail to sync last two weeks and it did so with ALL the attachments. Previously I had an HTC where you could choose / configure to only sync the headers and then downlod only thoose attachements you want. I am very dissapointed there is no easy fix to this problem. I did good research on the Galaxy S, HTC Desire HD and iPhone 4 and on price performance the Galaxy S comes tops but now I am going to pay on data bundle.

Is there no fix / advanced configuration settings for this??

The Samsung email app that came with Social Hub on Froyo allows you to only pull down headers. Its still not that quick but it's something.

I installed froyo using Kies - no problem. But now my email is not so slow it's unusable.
Samsung say there are known incompatibilities with froyo and service-provider-supplied phones.
They suggested I go back to the previous version of Android!
I tried 2 of the Samsung service centres, but neither of them knew what I was talking about and could do nothing to help.
The alternative they proposed was to mail it to them for fixing, a process taking 2 weeks.

Today I have good news.
According to Vodafone http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/forum-73/announcement-51-firmware-related-queries/ (my service provider), this kind of problem is covered under warranty.

"Any update that users are prompted to download to their device through an official channel
(either by the manufacturer or Vodafone directly) is classed as an official update.
For example, if you are told an update is available for your Samsung Galaxy S
through Samsung’s Kies PC Sync software, your warranty won’t be impacted if you choose to install it.
"

So if you upgraded using Kies, and there are problems, call your service provider and ask them to fix it!

You could do that or you could flash and lag fix with Voodoo then apply One Click Lag Fix, no more email lag, mine was unuseable before that too!

For those who are experiencing exchange email problems after upgrading to Froyo 2.2, I have found a temporary work around. Try TouchDown ... it saved my day ! I can now work my exchange emails again. There is a 30 day free trial period, hopefully there will be an updated Froyo 2.2x released before then ! (btw - this is NOT an ad and I do NOT work for TouchDown ... just a genuinely frustrated Froyo 2.2'er)

Hi everyone, not posted before but this thread helped me solve my problem with this issue so thought I would share my findings. Also, it seems this issue only affects those who had an exchange account setup on the phone, is that right? Anyway:

Before the Froyo update I was using my Galaxy S to sync with my work Exchange server and found using it for work fine, emails came through on the device very quickly etc etc Following Froyo this all stopped. Emails no longer came through at all without manually opening the Email app and waiting for it all the sync even though emails were set to push. Leaving email open crippled phone speed in general. Started considering a factory reset, my hand was forced 2 days ago when I lost all my widgets and menu bar only showed application link (no messaging etc)! Done a factory reset and now email works fine and the phone is generally alot faster than before or even when I first got it. I don't know if the loss of widgets/menu bar is related to the 2.2 update (I probably need to read more on the forum to work that out).

tl;dr Do what pwhooftman said

It is always a good practice to start with a "clean" device by Hard/Factory Reset after updating/flashing its firmware.
