    Based on the forums, I decided to install K-9 yesterday and love it. I noticed today that I wasn't getting emails. When I go into the application the bar at the top says "polling off'. It's that way for all of the accounts. I went into each account's setting and polling is turned on to the amount of time I set for each account. Is this a known glitch? Anyone know what's going on?

    Thank you in advance!!

    I know this is a dumb question, but is your internet running?

    "polling off" is the default after the install.

    But it was polling fine after the install. How can one turn it back on when I've checked all polling settings and they are on. Right now I have to check manually.

    It really isn't that dumb. You rule out the obvious first. It is on.

    I've come to the conclusion that it's reading the unread messages on the server itself. At least that belief lets me move on and not think about the why of it all. :)

    okay it was totally my fault. I was using the power control widget and had sync turned off to save battery life ('nother topic, 'nother time). Didn't realize it would affect that application.

    Now I know why my fixes wouldn't work. It wasn't broken!!

    Thanks for "fessin" up and letting us know. Many people would have just left us without an answer rather than admit a tiny little mistake. :)

    Well, I felt it might answer another person's problem. Something simple but not considered...

    Hi, just following up to some previous conversation on K-9 here as a new Android user (Droid X).

    Is there no way for K-9 to go out and fetch/download email on a timed schedule without leaving background data and sync on? For example, my beautiful widgets is set to refresh on wake and it does that without the background data being continuously on. I would like to keep my background data and sync off and just have my phone look for new emails to my gmail account every 30 mins or so. Thanks.
