    For no apparent reason, my phone stopped checking for email (on 5 separate accounts) G-mail still pushed fine, so it took a couple of days for me to notice, but in the meantime, my battery life nearly doubled.

    A re-boot fixed the email issue and battery life is back to normal- 12-18 hours average use. I had set the other five accounts to check for mail at varying times. One was set for every 30min, the rest were every 2 hours (or more).

    I did not realize what a battery drain email checking was causing. YMMV

    That's why I just forwarded all of my email accounts to my gmail.

    After reading this I decided to forward all of my mail to gmail. I did fail my first test, since the server decided I was a spammer... So I added my alternate email addresses to my contact list, and now they get through.

    I like it better to only deal with mail in one place anyway. I was in the process of moving as much as I could off of Yahoo mail, so I will continue to check that manually until I am sure nothing important is going there.

    How do you go about forwarding all your mail?

    Is there any way to update the email manually?

    I think this is what you're asking about...
    Open either the Gmail or standard mail app, hit Menu and select Refresh.
