I have a bold 9780 ( on bell with os6 bundle 863 and 235 mg of free space) and when i was trying to setup my gmail to work with my inbox i had an issue when it tried to upgrade the email options it got cancelled and now everytime i try to open options under email it won't open and i can't change any settings. Is there a way to reload the core email app to get my options again?

Welcome to the forums.
Seems to be a lot of what you describe going around.
Only way I know of right now to resolve this is to wipe your device (complete OS wipe) and reload the software.
You'll want to back up your device first with Desktop Manager.
Next, make sure you have the current OS for you device downloaded and installed onto your PC.
Then download and install an app called BBSAK (BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife) to wipe the OS. If you have any third party apps installed, you'll be able to also back them up with BBSAK.
Once you've gotten all that done, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader on your PC. If the OS you downloaded is from your particular carrier, you can skip this, otherwise go to the bottom of the list and delete the file called "vendor.xml".
Now, you'll connect your device to the PC and launch BBSAK. It will ask you for a password. If you don't have a password assigned, just click OK. Choose the option to Wipe OS. Once the wipe is complete, your device should reboot and you'll be left with a white screen and an error 507, which means the wipe was successful.
Then, in the same folder as the "vendor.xml" file, towards the top of the page is an executable file called "Loader" which will have a little phone icon next to it. Connect your device to the PC, then double click on the Loader executable. This will launch the process to re-install your OS. The OS will be displayed on the screen at which point you can choose to add the 3rd party apps you may have saved off earlier. The backed up apps are stored in a folder called Backup in the BBSAK folder (C:\Program Files\BBSAK). You'll navigate to that from the Loader screen.
Once the install is complete, you'll want to restore any data and settings from the backup you created earlier.
I know it sounds like a lot, so please post back if something is not clear (which I'm sure you'll find! ) or if you have questions.

I forgot to mention that when you go to set up your e-mail accounts again, do so on the internet from your PC, so you can avoid a similar hassle next time around.
Who is your service provider? Most have web-based services for this process.
