    Messaging App not Fetching Gmail

    I have linked my Gmail acct to the Messaging app. Problem is that it will not automatically fetch/refresh Gmail...to get my Gmail using that app I have to perform a manual refresh.

    I have checked my settings all over....any help? What am I missing?

    fyi...if I just use the Gmail app, I receive email notifications just fine....I just would prefer to run it through the Messaging app.

    Thanks!

    The messaging app won't let you use it to fetch gmail.

    are you sure? Because there's a 'fetch' option with settings, etc. Well at the very least I have the 'Data push' turned on...which according to the description is meant to have messages appear on my phone as they are received by the server.

    Furthermore, the Messaging app notifies me of an email if I have the Gmail apps notification turned on. But then I receive two notifications, which I don't like. To me the point of Messaging app is to do this for me...along with any other social network, text, email accounts I add.

    So again...is what you said really true???

    Thanks.

    If you use gmail you'd still receive the notification. I'm on motorola droid x, I have the same app and never in the time that I've had it has that app ever retrieved my gmail. The notification it's for all messages...

    Right....my problem is that it does not...or at the very best sporadically....retrieves Gmail automatically.

    I almost always have to manually refresh/sync to Gmail from within the Messaging app to retrieve the messages.

    I have 'Data push' setting turned on...so I don't know what else to do...hence the post.

    If I might ask what settings did you use to get the messaging app to retrieve your gmail?

    Do it the other way around and use Gmail to fetch your other emails and push them to you phone via the Gmail app. I've been doing this for about 18 months now and love it. The Gmail app is better (imnsho) and it saves battery power: Using Gmail as your own personal push mail server

    You can set up your gmail account as an exchange account in the stock email app. This works very well for me. Here is a link to the settings:

    Hope this helps.
