Default Email Widget not refreshing

So I set up the Email Widget with my POP email account. The widget looks cool in that you can scroll through your email without opening the email app. The thing is, the widget doesn't seem to get updated with new email. Anyone have any experience with this?

I put that up today and noticed the same thing. I loved how you could resize the widget, but it never would update when new mail came in.

Im having the same problem with my galaxy nexus on verizon. Seems the only way to refresh the email is to delete the widget an re-add it. Any help is appreciated!

I have this issue as well. Very frustrating considering it is a feature I will use ALOT!

Try scrolling through the widget to older emails. This forced a refresh on my Exchange email widgets.

I created a bug report: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=23279&thanks=23279&ts=1324398205

star it to promote it. If you have something to add on replicating the issue, do post. But if it's going to be just a "i have a problem too" post, just star instead of posting.

Guys can anyone test it without expanding the widget and just leaving it at it's original size? That seemed to do it for me.

Has anyone found a solution to the email widget issue? I have exchange linked to the widget for work emails and it will work for a bit, but I will have to delete the widget and apply it again for it to work properly which is a pain. I still get notifications for new emails, but I need to open the app itself to see the email which makes the widget pointless.

Yes, i've seen this as well, but have come across an app which will quickly refresh the tablet and in the process, update the email widget.
Its called FMR memory cleaner. Its free.
I've found it also helps speed the whole tablet up for quite a while after running it.
Im using the motorola xoom, and the app works great.

Are these phone specific bugs for these apps?
