    Anyone on ota 2.1 notice that email syncing is nor working as well? Since being upgraded I have noted that both my gmail and yahoo mail is not syncing on any regular schedule. If I wake phone it seems to sync but won't really check mail based on sync schedule I have set. Sometimes 2 or mores past 1 hour schedule I have set. Any others out there.

    I think only you and 2 other people have recieved the OTA update, so I doubt you'll find anyone that can answer any questions about issues concerning the OTA update !:eek:

    I have 2.1 leak v3, and I've noticed similar behavior in Mail (which I use for my work email). My Gmail seems reliable, but my Mail app doesn't seem to follow its schedule unless I've recently opened the app. For instance, every morning when I wake up, I should have ten or fifteen emails from work. Sometimes it already shows that I have messages, which makes sense. But sometimes it doesn't have any mail notification, and then I open the Mail app, and THEN it gets the ten or fifteen messages that arrived overnight. After that, they seem to arrive on schedule most of the day. I think the Mail service isn't always running in the background like it should. I don't use any task killers.

    Just a thought, do you have "Refresh mail when I open" checked to "on" under mail settings? Just wondering if that might have something to do with mail build-up. Is it interfering with the selected time of the mail program checking and downloading mail on schedule?

    I do have "Refresh mail when I open" checked to "on", I will turn that off and see if that fixes it, thanks.

    I've tried it both ways, with that setting on or off.

    What is your mobile network setting? Do you have the 'Always on' setting unchecked?

    I was using the Mail app for my work Exchange account for a brief period of time (quit using it because it bogged the phone down drastically and I hate the 16 character security PIN that changed daily). Anyways, I had mine set to notify me as mail came in instead of polling every so many minutes. When I turned off the Always On mobile network, I noticed some delay in getting my messages. Just a thought.

    Nope, mobile network is always on. I really think something is killing the Mail service, because once I check it manually in the morning, it works on the schedule again for several hours.
