We apologize for any troubles this issue has caused. We are working hard to find a solution. However for the time being, we only have a temporary fix. It's a program that allows you to restore your email account once it has been lost. Unfortunately, we don't have a permanent fix, yet. Until then, we encourage you to use this software to repair your account. Furthermore, as we now know, one of the main causes of the issue is the battery dying from low power.

  7. On the 600 Phone select: Start -> Programs -> mailAccountRepair (A window will appear asking you if you trust the program as it is from a unknown publisher. Just click YES to continue.)
