    My gmail app suddenly stopped working. i have background and auto sync on. contacts and calendar syncing without any issue. mail is the only problem. i uninstalled ADW launcher which i updated right before this problem and all related apps for that launcher from the phone. i rebooted the phone (several methods including holding down power and volume buttons down, power off and battery out) but the problem still persists. I am unable to see the gmail app in the android marketplace from my phone. Otherwise, i will uninstall the one in my phone and reinstall the same. Another crazy thing is..when i open manage applications under settings, i dont see gmail app there. i have to app on my tray but not found in the applications list...what is going on???? HELP PLEASE

    You will not be able to uninstall your stock gmail app. Unless you root. That's probably why it's not in the market as you're never suppose to NOT have it (and frankly I don't think it gets updates). Your best bet would be to return to your applications list under "manage applications", hit the options capacitive touch button (the far left one) hit "filter" then select "All". The gmail app will now be in the list. Try clearing the caches etc. *NOTE* If you return to your applications list you will have to change your filter setting back to "All" because as you exit it will default back to only showing 3rd party apps. Hope this helps!
