I selected "email to friend" from the AP mobile news site from my Samsung Droid phone and the story was not forwarded, meaning there was no attachment of story in the body of the email Furthermore, the format of the reply to contacts was screwy, i.e.. It listed my gmail address 4 times as the 'reply to'. Then it listed the recipient address 'to' 4 times.
I've seen this occur with simply replying to an email using gmail. Something is broken in forwarding and replying within GMAIL from the Samsung Droid phone.
