    I have two gmail accounts on my phone.
    both get mail all day long and generally its very good about it. here lately it has sucked, hard.
    Looking at the accounts will show unread messages, the inbox itself will show unread messages via the counter but there are no messages to click on.
    Log into google on the web and there they are, as I delete them the message counter counts down but still never shows the emails on the phone.
    This seems to happen in the mornings.
    Restarting the phone does nothing.
    Running BB V1 No aftermarket email apps installed.

    I am having the same problem. My default mail app is registering emails into my gmail account. But my Gmail app the counter will change with no email to click on. I also checked manually syncing it and all my other google services sync but my gmail portion of my google account will not and says last sync 2 days ago, no matter how many times I try to sync just that one or all my google services. My contacts and calendar update. Not Gmail.

    Are you also running a ROM or are you stock?

    I'm not sure what you mean. I have the Incredible. I know you probably have the Moto Droid. I dont know what you could be using ROM or stock in their proper meaning ... pertaining to our google accounts not syncing?

    Gmail came stock. I am not running any skinners or anything.

    Ok, so then you are stock and a different platform all together, interesting. wondering if its a google problem now....
    Anyone else with such an issue? or a fix?
    Next time I see it come up I'll clear all cache files and see if that will help.

    I've always had problems syncing Gmail. It never syncs. I always have to go in an manually sync it. I just thought that's how it was supposed to work?

    clearing the cache does nothing for it.
    and no, manual sync is not how it should work.

    Yeah mine doesnt send out either. I went into my Google Account settings undid IMAP enabled... and re did it... didnt change anything. I would appear to be a Google... or an Application problem... nothing with the phone because I am recieving emails on my default email client.

    Settings, Accounts & Sync, click your google account (under it should say sync is on) make sure there is a checkmark in sync gmail.
