    Ok I have no idea what to do here, I can manually sync my accounts but they dont refresh like they are supposed to. I even tried turning push off, battery pull etc NOTHING.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, I really need my email on me at all times! :)

    If you have a Task Killer installed, uninstall it, and reboot the phone and see if that resolves it.

    If not, keep the TK uninstalled...and delete and reinstall one of your accounts. See if at least that one account starts syncing again. If yes, you'll need to do it for the other ones.

    Try to live without the TK for a week and see if your emails stay sync'd. If yes, then reinstall the TK and see what happens. If probs re-occur, you'll know that the TK is the cause.

    Push and hold on a home screen, select widgets, select power control.
    Make sure sync (the circle arrows) is highlighted.

    Is background sync on? Do you have Juice Defender installed?

    Not sure where background sync is (I know pathetic) I know on my HTC incredible it had a different Sync menu. I've got it set to push OR fetch every 15 if push isnt available.. I'm going to start killing 3rd party apps to see if maybe its something I installed, no juice defender.

    Oh I ALSO just noticed my last sync for Backup Assistant was 10/27 and normally it does it everyday... VERY odd...

    Ok here is what I did, although I think the last step is actually what did it :)

    1. Cleared the Cache
    2. Cleared the Email Cache
    3. Installed the Android Power Control Widget on one of my home screens and cycled the sync button. When I restarted the phone my email pushed immediately and now seems to be working.
