    I recently rooted my D2G and flashed fission to it. I am really enjoying this ROM, but my emails aren't coming in as they should. My phone won't sync any email unless I reboot. I know the email is there, because I have others that get some that I get and I can send test emails, but unless I restart my device, nothing happens when I hit refresh. Anyone else have this problem?

    Hey, I'm not near my phone atm but I thought I remembered seeing some kind of email hotfix in the FRM. I'm not sure if that would solve your problem but just putting it out there.

    I have a d2g running fission 2.4.3 as well but I don't use it to check my email, so I'm not sure if I would have that same problem or not.

    What email app are you using? I strongly recommend the following concerning all emails. Also, by using the Gmail app, it is very easy to fix an issue with non-syncing by going into apps/manage apps/all/gmail/clear data. So here's my suggestion:



    Emails: I don't know what email app you use, but try this. It saves battery power and in some cases emails arrive quicker. This scheme will have you using only the Gmail app on the phone for all email accounts whether they are pop3 accounts or Gmail. Go to the Google Gmail inbox on your computer and log into the Gmail account. On the top right of the screen is an option called Settings. In there is an option to have the Gmail program poll your regular, non-Gmail accounts (From the inbox; Settings/Accounts & Import/ Check mail using POP3). Provide the email address and the password. The Google Gmail program will then poll your other accounts on a frequency from 1-5 minutes and push the email immediately to your phone. The polling frequency is determined by each account's activity - more emails = faster polling. This saves battery power because on the android OS pop3 accounts are polled at a frequency of 1-30 minutes and that really eats battery. Because the phone goes and checks those accounts for mail whether there is mail there or not.
