    I have two other non-gmail accounts linked to my phone to sync/push every 5 minutes and I never get an alert for when new ones come in, but when I go to the app and look they all pop up.
    Am I doing something wrong?


    Please help, these are university emails and business emails. They are kinda important =/

    Thanks for reading.

    Not exactly the answer you are looking for, but I'll offer it anyway in case it helps.

    I am using K9 as my e-mail client, together with the third-party "Email Popup" app for it. One of those two apps -- don't know which one -- has caused my LED to flash MAGENTA when I get new e-mails. The funny thing about this is, I can't find any settings in either of these apps to specify the color of the LED flash, but if I could have found such a setting, magenta is what I would have chosen.

    I use Handcent for text messages. It does allow me to specify the LED color and I have chosen BLUE for new texts.

    And finally, G-mail continues to flash the default GREEN.

    I suppose I am probably over-rating the gee-whiz factor of having the LED flash different colors for different kinds of messages but this way I know what app to open to get the latest incoming message.

    I would think that if you installed a new e-mail client like K9 or Touchdown you would be back to a flashing LED for new emails.

    FYI -- push accounts push as needed. Polling intervals are only applicable to pull accounts.
