Default Why don't incoming gmails produce an "alert"?

Something's missing. I've failed the setup. Incoming gmail should produce an alert of some sort, and it's not happening. I haven't found the button, switch, trigger, or ?? to do it.

The mail is on the phone, but new mail should alert me. It doesn't.

Obviously, it's part of google's IQ test - and I didn't pass.

???

Maybe someone will give us both a pointer. There must be a way.

Do you have data always on and gmail set to sync automatically? Did you choose an alert sound? Mine always notifies me...even at 3 set am when I wish it wouldn't.

Well, let's check the obvious things. Within gmail, menu->settings. Is email notifications checked? Have you selected a ringtone?

Data's always on and a ringtone has been selected, but I don't know how to tell gmail to sync automatically. It does, however, because emails appear frequently.

It's just that there's no alert when they do.

But thanks - we're on the hunt!

From within the gmail app. Menu>more>settings>
make sure notifications is checked and you have selected a ringtone.

If notification is checked, check the notification volume in settings... the notification volume is different from the ringer volume.
