After going to my contact list, I hit the menu button and went to "Accounts" since I remembered it showed the accounts for google/facebook syncing there. It showed my google account as off with an error. I tapped it to turn it back on, and it connected. I think looked under the google account where it shows options for contacts, gmail etc...
When I tried to disable and re-enable the gmail option, it said that gmail syncing had a problem, but would be back shortly.
So, maybe google is doing something or it is temporarily down?
Let me know if anyone else is having this issue or if its just me.
I noticed that recently, my GMail app that comes pre-installed no longer syncs with my GMail account. It never alerts or shows any new emails.
I can see my new unread emails on the mobile web browser, but not from the app itself. I noticed that I had set "always use https" in my settings on gmail a few days ago, and it caused my GMail Notifier program on the PC to always get an error. So today I changed my settings on my email account to "do not always use https (the default option) and now my PC GMail Notifier is working, but my sync with the DROID's GMail app still will not show new/unread emails or notifications.
I tried manually using the refresh option on the app in the phone, andi t shows the refreshing icon for a few seconds in the notification bar, but its still not reporting new emails...
