Apple + ActiveSync is eating email on my iPhone: iCrap?

Apple has had better days, and I used to be able to read my email during those better days.

I wrote earlier about how great the new Apple ActiveSync integration works. To a point, that's true. My calendar and contacts have been syncing flawlessly on my iPhone.

But email? Well....

Half the time that I click on an email it bumps me back to my home screen (and resets email so that the server needs to push it back to the phone). I have no idea what is going on, but I've re-created my IMAP account until Apple figures out the problems.

I'm a huge Apple fan. Today, however, I couldn't be more disappointed. I keep seeing pretty, shiny things...and then finding out they're iCrap underneath.
