    For some reason my Gmail isn't getting pushed to my phone anymore - it's acting like it's polling or set to manual refresh. I didn't change any settings that I remember. The only thing that changed was an update to the Quick Settings app.

    Anyone else having problems?

    No, I have two Gmail accounts set-up and haven't had any problems.

    Are you using the Gmail app itself or have you configured HTC Mail?

    I sometimes have noticed this type of behavior and doing a manual sync (look in the menu for the Gmail app) seems to clear it for the future.

    Bundy, I had this exact same issue and posted my fix the other day. Not sure if this will work for you, but give it a shot. Change your Scene to a different one, give it a minute or two and see if Gmail starts working. Mine did, then when I changed it back to the one I was using it continued to work and has been fine since. I have no explanation for this, but after about 15 hours of trouble shooting, this accidental move solved my problem.

    Can someone explain the differences/advantages between using the HTC mail program (exchange) for my Gmail account and the dedicated Gmail app on the phone.

    Thanks!

    turn on auto snyc. That was my problem and once I turned it back on, I got my emails pushed to me
     
  8. Settings -> Data synchronisation -> make sure Gmail is ticked

    @ Topshelf - thanks for taking the time to post that, you are true to your name.

    @ bryn987 - that was my problem - I came back to post that I figured it out when I saw your advice. Thanks.

    I am not an expert yet, but from what I have read/experienced, the IMAP Idle that is used with the native gmail app (or the HTC one if setup using IMAP), is not true push email. But I think that the exchange/activesync is. Therefore, you will get your mail almost instantly with exchange, and just a bit more slowly with IMAP Idle.

    I really hate the "conversation view" (threaded view) that google likes to use. Its harder for me to quickly see my new messages, I have to open up each thread. I know some people like this, but google should really give people a choice.

    ANYWAYS, thats one reason to use HTC exchange. I believe both are push.
