I'm pretty excited to get ActiveSync, though. I'm hoping that'll fix the bug/bug-they-call-a-feature that causes emails that come in during the night to be dated as if they're from 1969. It's only Drew emails too. Axel explained to me what the problem might be (an empty header field somewhere), but K9 handles everything perfectly. If only it had a more readable interface...
Ironically, there seems to be a bug with the Droid X and Droid 2 running 2.2 that makes all the message dates on the device show up as December 31, 1969. It's only cosmetic, but still.
We're in our final testing of the sync server now. Hopefully in another week or two we'll announce general availability.
