    For whatever reason my gmail application is not synching new incoming mail. I'm using the gmail application on my atrix. I just noticed this issue today when I logged into my gmail from my work pc and noticed 50 new messages, however, my phone showed no new messages.

    I have trouble shooted this issue thoroughly on my own, cleared the data, rebooted, etc etc but it's still not synching on it's own.

    What should / could I do about this?

    I've been through all of my settings and can't seen to get to my "account & sync settings" how do I access that setting menu. I go to accounts in settings and it only allows me to manually sync; there is no auto sync option.

    I appreciate any assistance you have!!

    Yea. The account & sync is not there once I enter settings. Accounts is available, but doesn't allow me to auto sync.

    Sometimes, checking and unchecking the background data box will do it.

    Settings/applications/manage Applications/All/Gmail/Clear Data.

    It will take a few minutes to reset itself. Should be ok then.

    From the home screen:

    Menu/Settings/Accounts & Sync/ then tap your email account name and a new menu will popup - is the "Sync Gmail" block checked there too?

    There is no "accounts & sync" tab on my phone. And three accounts tab only allows me to sync manually.
