No, since I didn't discover it until I was in the airport checking my
email on my Droid X.

Notably, I haven't been able to view your messages at all: all I get is
an empty message and an icon showing attachments.  I have to manually
d/l the plain text portions, then open them in either HTMLviewer or
QuickOffice.  If people doubt this, I'll be happy to show images.
