    Gmail Syncing

    Hello. Recently, my Droid does not sync with Gmail correctly. I am getting the emails sent to my account, but when I delete or move them, it does not sync back to the internet gmail. So I delete it on my phone, and then I have to delete it on my computer. How do I fix this? Thanks!

    I'm confused as to what you are saying about your gmail not syncing correctly. What I would do is have your regular email sync every hour and have gmail sync your mail for you like it's suppose to.

    When you say it's not removing it from the computer are you referring to gmail or some other client?

    I'm not quite picking up what you're putting down. Do you have your email forwarded to gmail using imap? If you don't you should.

    Ya sorry, it is a bit unclear. Ok, story time.

    I hear my droid go "droooid" so I pick it up, and read the email. After I am done, I delete it. Later that day (like 4 hours later), I go on my computer to check my gmail. I find that the emails I deleted earlier are still there, unopened.

    My computer will sync to my droid, but my droid will not sync to my computer.

    Hope that makes it clear.

    And the client that you are using is your droid, right? But when you go back to your gmail on your computer you still see the mail there.

    Is there any kind of tag that you see attached with the email? Do you see it in your in box or is it in the all mail?

    Finally make sure that you have Google sync checked on your settings, click on yourname@google.com and make sure that gmail is clicked to sync. It should not be showing up in you in box unless you go right to it immediately afterwards.

    There are no tags, and btw this is just in the inbox. No special area.

    When I go on my phone, click on gmail app, click menu--labels. It says
    "Number of days to sync -- 4
    labels
    Inbox --4
    ..... etc"

    Does this mean it only syncs back to the computer every 4 days? If I bring it down, it only goes to 1 then 999 if I go lower. So should I just put it at 1?

    I reviewed your settings with what I have.

    Here's what I have: In box Sync 4 days, Sent Sync 4 days, imap/trash sync all.

    If you have got that set that way then I'm out of ideas. It should be deleting your email shortly after you delete it from your phone.

    OP, are you synching your gmail through the default email client? there are two email clients on the DROID. GMAIL and Email.

    @Hookbill -- I have everything set that way except for the imap/trash sync all. Where did you acess that? I can't find it.

    @640k -- I am using the Gmail client.
