    Hi all,

    I've configured both the HTC Mail app and the GMail app to access my Gmail account. I'd like to use the GMail app, but it looks like I can't read any mails without an email connection - it just reports "No Connection" and offers a "Retry" button.

    I have the relevant labels set to "sync all", and otherwise have no problems or errors.

    If anyone could tell me whether this is normal behavior or not I would appreciate it.

    Hi and welcome aboard.

    Could this have something to do with the way you're connecting to Gmail. I mean, I have major problems connecting to the internet through my wireless router at home - so I'm stuck with HSPA connection - which works fine. But sofar that's the only solution for me to get my mail through the Gmail application, hence my problems with the WI-FI.

    Hi SlowMoe and thanks for your response.

    I haven't had any issues actually connecting via wifi or EDGE - both work at expected speeds for mail, web browsing, etc and I've had no problems.

    However, today - without making any settings changes at all - I can read my GMail offline without any error messages. The phone is just a few days old so perhaps it needed time to sort itself out? I'm not sure but thanks for your comments anyway.
