    So far I love the new SS4.7. My only problem is that Gmail always force closes. If I try to open it I get a force close message and anytime I get an e-mail I get a force close message. I tried fixing permissions but that did not help. Is anyone having a similar problem? I might have to try reinstalling SS4.7 and wiping. That would give me a chance to use bkapps because I haven't tried it yet.

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Gmail

    Clear data and cache. That should fix it.

    Double-check that you selected the "All" apps tab at the top. You may just be looking at the first tab, "Downloaded" apps.

    Thanks, I did filter > all and found gmail. I cleared data and cache and it still seems stuck on sending. The thing that has worked for me is to go to menu > back to inbox, then menu > refresh, and it has sent. But it's kind of a pain to go through all that just to send an email. Any other ideas?

    Fixed it!

    Somehow the autosync was turned off. Here's what I found on another site:
    First select your gmail icon, then hit your options button and select accounts. On top should be the envelope with the gmail written next to it underneath should be your gmail account. Next, hit your option key again and seletct account settings. There should be a Background data checked green and underneath is Auto-sync. Make sure that is checked green. Mine wasnt and after highlighting that option, the section beneath labeled "Manage accounts" switched to Sync is ON with a grean circle (refresh symbol) appearing.

    This fixed the sending problem for me, as well as not telling me about new emails. Thanks for the help!

    Whoops. I thought I put that first response on another thread. Looks like they moved from from Newbie to Junior Droid too soon...
