    I haven't been receiving my email on my gmail account. I logged into my gmail account on my Macbook and I have 10 emails that never showed up in my Droid. Any ideas?

    On a sidenote, what's the difference between the gmail icon and the email icon that are in my Droid?

    thats only happened to me once. Maybe just a bug in software.

    To make sure that you receive your email through gmail ensure that auto-sync is enabled. to check this go to Settings, accounts and syncy, and make sure that auto sync is checked in green. Lastly ensure that your accounts are set to sync (green)

    Thanks for the tip P3. So is it also normal for gmail emails to also appear in the email app?

    Okay, I'm confused. I made sure that my Gmail account is set up correctly and that sync is on. I just got an email at 9:02pst that showed up in my Email app but not in my Gmail apps. So I opened Gmail and hit refresh and the email showed up. I also noticed that the email was delivered at 8:54pst. Why isn't my Gmail being pushed to my phone???

    I had this problem yesterday too. My main gmail account tied to my phone had no emails all day, but then later that night, 3 emails popped up on my phone. All the times had been from early that morning, but I didn't receive them until much later. I had 3G reception all day so it isn't like I was out of the service area.

    I have my AOL mail account loaded and notice that I get email notifications. But, when I click on it to see the new emails, half the time there aren't any! I see stuff I already read, but nothing new. I have a gmail account, too, and it happens there, too. Anyone else?

    Same thing is happening for me. I have all my settings & synching options setup the right way. I tried the battery pull but nothing. I ended up setting up a Email account pointing to my gmail. It seems to then work for a bit but now I'm back to no sync emails. If I hit refresh in the gmail app I do get them. My work around for now is to use the other email account & get info every 15 minutes. I do have exchange setup & it works perfectly...
