    No connection with gmail

    from home screen I can access my RR and MSN in boxes and check my mail, however when i click icon for gmail I get error message " no connection " I can not send or recieve gmail from my DX. Read all the post I could find and tried what was suggested. Gmail on my PC works good. Sure could use good info on ports as maybe thats why I can not send or receive. I did get to the compose page in gmail but after sending I get the error message that it did not send.

    I haven't experienced this problem directly, but anytime my Gmail starts acting up, I go to Menu-Settings-Applications-Manage Applications-All

    Then I scroll down to Gmail, select it, clear cache and clear data.

    Have you tried this?

    I did not try clearing data because it said it would delete "accounts " as well, I took this to mean it would delete my gmail account.Is that correct?

    No, you will lose any settings though, and if you had multiple gmail accounts you will probably have to re enter them. All this does is "reset" the gmail app. It doesn't delete your gmail account.

    I don't think you are supposed to be able change any settings for gmail, did you try to add gmail into your email application? They are two separate applications, one for email, and one for gmail.

    You should use the stand alone gmail app, rather than the email app.

    If you open your app drawer, there should be an app for "Email," and down a bit further one for "Gmail." What happens when you open the "Gmail" app?

    I have never seen an instance where you had to enter in ports and settings to access Gmail.
