    If I kill the email "default that comes with the phone" as it wants to pop up all the time, does that also kill gmail?

    Seems since autokilling email, my gmail hasn't auto recieved new mail, if I actually open it with the gmail app and hit refresh, I can get them but hasn't done it on its own?

    Yes, it used to work fine before.... is there a relation or is it just being glitchy?

    I'm guessing Yes. Gmail is the default "Email" program so if you are killing that, it's not going to sync because it's killed.

    Perhaps changing your notification settings.

    I have default email removed and gmail works fine. Not sure if I just removed the icon or the app itself though.

    I still get my Gmail and I deleted the email client, so no they do not depend on each other.

    How are you killing it?... are you just killing the app everytime it pops its head up or did you uninstall it?

    I "removed" it when flashing to Sholes. However, I'm not sure if that removes the entire app or just the icon.

    I think we could get into some fun discussions about yours. I have a feeling we'd be on the winning side. :icon_ devil:

    hrmm. I never plugged any info into the email app, I use gmail as my main email. never had a problem with it poping up, at all, let alone often.

    Is there any account set up with "Email" I clicked on it, it asked me about settings, I closed it. Checked the task killer I have, it wasn't even loaded. Guessing if you have account info added it would try to check it, but I also imagine like most things it has notification settings.

    I only use task killers when I want to make sure a IM program or something isn't connected, so I'm not getting multiple messages in multiple places.

    I'm talking about yours. And I'd love a world without religion. But if we go any further into that discussion, this thread would drop into the closed position faster that my wife's hula skirt on our honeymoon.

    Humm...maybe there's no relation... I went into email and its not configured nor ever has been and I cleared the cache and attempted to force close it.

    After doing all that I can still access gmail.

    for some reason my gmail notification is not working... maybe its a temporary glitch.

    You da man!... boy do I feel stupid now! :mad:

    I never turn it off so I didn't even think of that.. but the other day I was playing with that setting as it seemed it wasn't syncing very fast and I forgot about it.

    As soon as I rechecked the "sync" button it fired up!

    thanks for making me look stupid! :icon_ banana:

    But I do appreciate you helped me find the issue!

    I blame it on being a guy thing "at least to my wife"..... get so tunneled on a certain thought pattern or look, shape, or color, can't see the obvious!

    That sounds much better than a senior moment!
