    Email problem

    I have been having an issue with my email and 'click through links'.

    I get email newsletters from two separate companies fairly regularly. If I try to follow the links I get an error page in my broswer telling me that the web page is not available.

    I have tried troubleshooting the issue. This happens with any email app, stock or otherwise, I use k9. Using a different browser does nothing different, I use dolphinHD. I have cleared caches and cookies. These links work on my laptop. Right now I am rooted but this was a problem for a while before I roooted. I didn't have this problem from day one though....

    So, any ideas? What phrasing or wording am I not using in my google searches, because I'm getting nowhere with google.

    If this is in the wrong place I apologize.

    TIA

    I am bumping my own, old @$$, thread because I am still at a total loss trying to understand why these links aren't working.

    If more info is needed I am more than happy to provide it.

    Thanks again.

    Have you tried wiping cache on the phone or on the email app itself?

    Thanks for taking the time, but yes.

    I am generally pretty computer/technology literate. I cannot come up with any reason why this would happen with any browser, any email client.

    Anyways, thanks again.

    Drastic action, but you try data wipe and sbf? Putting 'er back to stock and checking is the only real 100% way to rule out any user apps or caused issues. Otherwise you can try getting alogcat but I don't feel like that would be 100% solution (ie issue may not show in system log)

    You don't have any AV installed do you? Sometimes those block email links

    Sorry for being gone so long. Work and life have kept me away.

    I agree with you that an sbf is the best troubleshooting method in this case. It's been awhile since I have done that and worry I won't be able to get my phone back up quick enough for work (on call just about 24/7 with short staff and all).

    I guess I was hoping that I wasn't the only one with this issue. Thought maybe I wasn't using the correct keywords when searching around for a solution.

    Also, I have no AV nor have I ever. And I remember this being an issue for a long time (coming up on my two years).

    I will try alogcat.

    Thanks.

    I did have ad free, deleted it upon your suggestion. No luck.

    Thanks though, hadn't thought of that angle.
