Thanks John,

The reason I don't believe it is a RAM shortage is when I dip below 50 MB of what the Manage Applications app it says I'm below like 43 mb of "INTERNAL STORAGE" but that is internal storage when I go to the list called "RUNNING" it says (right now) RAM 221 MB used and 135 MB free. It is always a higher number in the 100's even when I drop below 45 in internal storage and my email shuts down.

I'm sort of presuming this is a partition of my Internal Storage set up for apps.

I'm striving to see if this is true and if the partition for Apps on Samsung GS3 is larger and by what amount. Right now it seems to be playing with about 428mb of "internal storage" (I assume ROM) with less than 50 of that "free."

So it seems to be limited to ROM partition rather than RAM. When I adjust (delete an app or two from the ROM) it goes over 50 and my email works.

Seems like RAM is always over 100 according to this list in the Settings. I'd really like to know how much internal storage is on the HTC EVO 4g and what they allocate of that for Apps and the difference between this factor and that of the Samsung GS3.

I know I am confusing the issue, but in short it reads I have plenty or RAM but low "Internal Storage" (Maybe ROM????) But since I know the Internal Memory is greater than 428 MB it must be a fixed partition. Obviously then need some to put in the operating system, etc.
