    People may have noticed the recent TLD change for UK gmail addresses previously googlemail.co.uk and now gmail.com

    With this, it seems to have messed up my synching and authentication for some reason. I changed over the other day and ever since I kept getting a message saying the authentication failed. I then added my gmail address as another account and set it to sync gmail (can't sync the calendar for some reason it's not an option)
    I have not received any push notifications of new mail and I have to manually refresh from within the mail app to get new e-mails.
    I don't want to remove the previous googlemail.co.uk as it says I have to restore my phone to factory settings (possibly losing messages etc)

    Can anyone shed some light on the situation?

    The only way to switch the phone from @googlemail.com to @gmail.com is to do a factory reset and go through the setup process again.
