    Question Have to hit refresh to get email?

    Yesterday, (D-1 of droid ownership) my email worked flawlessly. I was receiving email in a timely manner (I didn't compare online to phone because I didn't care too much.) But today, I've been working on my computer and I noticed that I haven't received one single email. (which is weird) So I logged into gmail and I had 10 sitting in my inbox and not a single one pushed to my droid. I hit refresh on my droid, and they showed up.

    So my question, is this just a gmail/verizon/service issue at the moment, or will I always have to hit refresh to get my email? Or is there some setting that needs to be adjusted? (I didn't change anything between last night and this morning, that i know of anyway.)

    If this question has been asked before, I apologize.

    first welcome

    now go to your setting and make sure that you have put a check mark on "sync settings" for Gmail. if that does not work try powering off your phone turn it back on and go to the google talk (it should sign in with your gmail info. you don't have to do anything with gtalk after its signed in) don't ask me why but thats what i had to do for mine. then my email worked fine after that. hope that helps

    Well it works now. I didn't do anything, but I did check to see if sync was on. (It was) I'm hoping it was just a fluke thing.

    Thanks for the help though.

    While we are on the topic... I have several none gmail accounts the I check through my Droid using the @email program that comes with the Droid and it never checks my emails for me I always have to go through each account manually and refresh each one. Even when I use the "combined inbox" button.
    What should I do????

    That would make sense cuz I get crappy service in my house (thank GOD for wifi and standing by the window to make a call, lol) but I shut off the wifi before I went to bed last night and I still got email until 3am. Then I turned on the wifi when I got up and nothing....

    *shrug* I don't know what the deal was. And now that I've just checked, I had to hit refresh again. But this time, wifi had turned itself off? *eyeroll*

    Hopefully I'll get it figured out. I don't want to have to keep refreshing every time I think I might be getting an email. That kind of defeats the purpose, right? lol

    Wifi by default is setup to disconnect when the phone goes into sleep mode. So you need to change that in the wifi advanced settings menu.


    Also check your gmail settings and see how long it's set to wait between syncing.

    I believe there's a setting in the Email program about e-mail check frequency, though it did seem to not always be very accurate when I used it.

    You can allow gmail to check your other e-mails by following this advice, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...rding-you.html

    Or you should check out the market app called K9. It's an e-mail app and I've heard nothing but good things about it.

    As to the original poster, I was in another thread on this same topic a couple days ago. We figured out that if you clear the cache from your gmail app once in a while, it seems to do a better job at bringing in newer mail. Since gmail is supposed to push mail to the phone, not sure if that's actually the case, but we all feel like we saw results after trying it...

    Changed the wifi settings.

    But even without changing any settings, it comes and goes at will it seem. For an hour it works fine, getting true up-to-the-minute email alerts, then the next it's just sort of haphazard, then fine again. *shrug*
