    Hello everyone,

    I upgraded from a brick-phone (Sony Ericsson w810) to a Samsung Galaxy Ace (Telus network in Canada, using Android 2.3.4 "Gingerbread") about a month ago, and so far love the phone and Android. So I am pretty new to smartphones. However I have one problem which has popped up recently.

    I only have 1 email account setup on my phone, it is a university based IMAP account. And I am using the stock Android email app to push emails from the IMAP incoming server to my phone (so I see the emails on my computer's Mail client as well as on my phone, etc). I have the app preferences set for: 10 minute refresh, and notifications setup such that an icon appears in the status bar of the phone and a sound plays whenever I get a new email.

    Initially, the notifications seemed to be working 100% fine.

    However, in the past week or so, without changing any settings the email notifications have gone a bit loopy. For example:

    -Sometimes I will hear the email notification sound, but there is no new email in the inbox
    -Sometimes there is a new email in the inbox when I manually check it, but I did not hear the notification sound, or see any icon in the status bar

    This seems to occur whether I am on wifi or on the 3G/HSPA data network.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? I tried taking the battery out and re-seating it, changing some settings slightly, etc. Nothing seems to help.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! ;)
