I only ever see this with Gmail, not with my other IMAP account. From
your description, I think you are seeing a different problem. In my case
Evo is not hung and isn't showing "Formatting message". It just says
there's an error contacting the server when I try to open a message on
Gmail. Restarting Evo clears it immediately. This happens a few times
per day.
