Hi Guys, Thanks For Looking,
Coming from an Env2 to the Droid I am loving it but confused over emailing and syncing. I figure I have a bad setting or am missing something.
I need layman's terms here because I am smart phone GREEN and I think I am loosing emails. Or getting FALSE notifications?
Not good because I am job hunting!
Every so often I'll get an email notification tone and when I pull down the box WOOSH! Nothing there, Gone! Nothing in any deleted folder either. No trace of it. I go to my Comcast and gmail servers on my desktop and no sign of an email ever coming or going at the time I got the notification. I do an Outlook send/receieve and there is nothing indicating one has came to my Comcast account. I do not use Outlook for gmail. Gmail is Droid or Webb based only.
Here are my details.
I have a gmail account setup in the phone. I take it the check mark next to it in the list means it's the default?
I have a Comcast.net email account also. Nothing special in the settings was done, just added the POP3 amd STMP and such and Never Delete From Server remains selected.
In the Droid Accounts & Sync I have Background Data and Auto-sync checked and the message accounts (gmail) has the green icon and says Sync is on.
So what do you think. What else do I need to check. I build my own computers so I know better than to fudge around.
Is there a history of false email notifications with Verizon, Comcast or with the Droid? I just got it a week ago. I have had only one freeze and reboot. It may have been from me going crazy through it to find the perceived problem.
Also, I really do not need another email account but was told I did @ verizon. I am not a power user. I just need my comcast account basically. I add contacts very rarely and can do it painlessly by hand if needed. I have experienced Sync issues in the years past of duplicates or lost contacts.
What Doy you Guys Think.
