To make this short and sweet, after finally getting the email issue straightened out by using k9 and being able to setup an embarq account, my phone will not notify me of new emails unless they are sent from someone who has a gmail account - i.e. email@example.com. I have had 2 people with gmail accounts email me and the phone notifies me with all the bells and whistles. The same 2 people emailed me using different accounts such as embarq or whatever and the phone will not notify me. I have to go into my email to see if there is anything there. I have checked, double checked and triple checked all the settings. My husband has a droid set up exactly like mine and he gets notifies of incoming emails. Anyone out there have this problem?
