    I've just noticed my email icon in the notification bars is not showing up anymore,
    i have notifications turned on but its stopped showing when email arrives
    all i get is the green dot with numbers in on the mail shortcut on my homescreen

    anyone else got this problem or any idea why its happened?

    Thanks

    J:D

    hi,

    having the same problem here with the sms/email notification icons.

    the icon shows up in the statusbar, when the screen is turned off and on again, the icon has disappeared.

    I found the stock email a bit flakey in a few area's so have now forwarded all my hotmail emails to my gmail account and it works perfectly. Gmail also push the emails so no data charges :D

    I find that most little bugs like this clear up after clearing the cache and turning off then on.

    Settings, applications, manage applications, then go into the app and there should be a clear cache button

    Forgot to mention I have a Samsung Galaxy instead of a Desire.

    Apparently a specific AutoKill setting in the Advanced Task Killer was the cause, the problem was solved after disabling Auto Kill.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy and my email icon has disappeared. I understand if I disable the Autokill feature, it will correct the situation. Where is the AutoKill listed?
