    Maybe Im not understanding you right, but when you say you "update it" are you referring to hitting "refresh" within the Gmail app, and waiting until you see your mail?

    I'm having the same issues with my gmail not updating unless I refresh and wait a few minutes for my emails to sync.

    Maybe it is getting killed by the android internal task killer? Try using the supercharger script by zepplinrox, it changes the phone's low memory settings to be less aggressive.

    Not sure if you solved this, but I had the same problem and figured it out. In the Accounts and Sync section, you need to go to Manage Accounts and then select your Gmail account. I found that my calendar and contacts were checked, but mail wasn't. After enabling mail, everything works perfectly.

    Thumbs up

    That was it, thank you. I did a test email and the LED is now blinking when I receive email.
