    I have problems with syncing my pop3/imap mail accounts. It does not automatically sync every hour. I have to do it manually. Sometimes, after 4 hours or so, it might (or might not) automatically sync.been struggling with it to be honest.
    it syncs normally for a few hours then somehow it blocks out and only works by manual syncing .
    What I tried:

    - Deleteing the accounts and new setup
    - fresh installation of ARHD 5.1.7 (with EXT4 script)
    of course I haved checked the auto update box. I do not have any problems with manual syncing.

    Do you have any ideas on how to get this over with ?

    Thank you.

    P.S , when i go to settings>accounts&sync>mail account , i have 3 email accounts setup and the sync time is always something like from when i last manually syncd it , unlike with weather and facebook , last sync time changes according to your preferences, but with mail its not.

    Mine is the same since the 2.3 update. I've not been able to sort it out either.

    Mine is the opposite. I use K9 mail, however setup the Mail application for some reason and disabled the syncing, but it does it occassionally anyway. I recommend switching to K9 mail. It is much better for everything, and the syncing works

    If you're using an alternative ROM, it could, potentially be an issue with that ROM as opposed to the HTC Mail app itself. Is it listed as a bug for that ROM, or does anyone else using that ROM have an issue with it?

    Incidentally, have you tried installing the latest version of ARHD? The latest version is 5.1.8 as far as I'm aware -

    [ROM] Android Revolution HD 5.1.8 | High Quality & Performance | O/C | Sense/no-Sense - xda-developers

    thx for the reply mate , yes i do have the latest ARHD and this bug isnt reported with the rom , so guess its not rom related cos the mail app isnt touched at all by the developers.
    im just wondering if people with gingerbread are having the same issues here with the auto sync imap mail usinf the HTC mail app.

    You may be experiencing a similar issue to the one I'm having with tweetdeck, it seems the wifi goes into a kind of sleep state when the screen times out, whereas if I lock the screen manually it doesn't. I havent noticed the affect on other account sync cos I dont really watch them closely.

    this has only been happening since GB (and happens on CM7 as well).

    Maybe try forcibly locking the screen when you put it down, to see if it has any effect?

    i can confirm this issue after gingerbread update.

    my issues been related mainly due to not updating in off peak period ! even though its set up to hourly auto updates during the off peaks. really weird.

    anyway to get through that ? its very important cos we r loosing a basic functionality of our phones :(

    thx for any help , appreciated.

    unfortunately, I have the same problem as you reported. I've not installed custom rom. I purchased DHD via Vodafone Turkey. When I got it, it had android v.2.2 which was flawless with both imap and pop3 emails. After updating the phone OTA to gingerbread (2.3) I am experiencing problems with my pop3 account.
    Besides that pop3 account, I have 5 different imap accounts installed which are working perfectly (mail check frequency for all accounts: every 30min for peak hours, every 2 hours for off-peak hours), however phone does not check pop3 account automatically. When I chose the account from account list, I am able to get new emails. I was not able to find a solution. Please help...

    yeah i guess its an error from HTC with the gingerbread update , dont know how to solve it after all this time but i think our only hope is that htc notices that and fixes it with an OTA update
