    I am really trying to like Android...it does much more than my blackberry...but the things my blackberry did...it did easily

    I have a brand New HTC Evo and I am not receiving gmail...unless i open the gmail application and manually hit the refresh key.

    How can an android phone not push gmail? Insane

    Please help...this is a deal breaker for me if i can't fix!!!

    thanks in advance

    HTC Evo...gmail is a google apps account (not sure if that matters)

    Did you go to accounts and sync? In settings and make sure that mail is checked under Google settings

    I had a hard time with 2.1 until I did a hard reset and then it was fine. Try that!

    I'm having same problem, except with my secondary account. My main gmail account is syncing and pushing email perfectly, my 2nd account doesn't push email even though the settings are both the same. Using 2.2 unrooted.
