    For some reason my email won't notify me when they come in. I have to manually refresh it. I just got the droid razor, and what a jump from the original droid! Its taken me a little while to figure it out. This email thing is bothering me. I have my fetch setting at every 15 min, but it also notes that it isnt being used with any accounts. I just cant figure out how to add my hotmail account to the fetch schedule. Any suggestions?

    You don't want it set to fetch, you want it set to push. That way as soon as something hits your email, your email will PUSH it to your device.

    To alter your settings, you'll want to log on to your email via a computer or you can go to gmail.com through your browser, then at the bottom of the screen, tap on desktop. Hope this helps?

    To add your other accounts, from the PC, go into your settings. It will allow you to enter other accounts to be forwarded to the gmail account. Sorry for the multiple posts, its one of this days :)

    I use hotmail and it is listed as my main email default and linked to my gmail. Right now my settings are set for push and not fetch. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Which app are you using for your email? You may try clearing data on the app and see if it starts to act as it should.

    Also, do you have a good stable data connection? Perhaps your using a battery saver that is shutting off your data connection as part of its effort to save battery?

    I do have a battery saving app that came with the phone that I use. That could be it. Also I haven't gone on my laptop and try to change any settings that way. Ill give it a shot.

    Now I am not receiving any mail even when I refresh it. Ill try the email settings through the pc. I don't know what's going on. I don't think its the battery saver any more. All my accounts are showing up on my email settings. Completely dumbfounded.

    Hmmm, its probably some setting in your email. But have you tried clearing data in the app for gmail.

    Go into settings, applications, manage applications, all, gmail try clear data. if you haven't already.

    I tried removing my hotmail and gmail accounts and was going to put them back on. Now I can't even remove the accounts. I just get a message that says http response exception.

    Well I think I solved the problem. I just downloaded another email app. Windows live push. Seems to do the trick so far.

    It was just the email app that came on my razor. I don't think it was just a gmail app. There is a separate gmail app that did come with the phone. One thing I don't care for about the razr is all the bloatware that came with it. I get these goofy notifications every now and then trying to sell something and I think it is coming from one of the apps that came with the phone. I'm not sure. I'm still new to the razr and just stumbling my way through it.
