Gmail Not Deleting... fresh rom problem???

    I've checked the other threads and it doesn't seem to be the same problem as mine.... so here goes.

    Everytime I receive an email, I delete it. When I delete one email... it'll show the inbox with the number ZERO in between parenthesis. Then 1 more email comes in.... the paranthesis number is 2. Delete the email that is actually new, and the new parenthesis is 1. Receive one more email... it'll show up as 3.

    Basically, the ones i deleted aren't deleted on google's server, but they won't show up again in my phone inbox- only in the "unread" counter. And no... it doesn't go away after a few minutes when gmail syncs.

    Do I really have to get onto a computer to clear the "unread" count??

    I am running fresh .7.

    Are you using the HTC Mail app or the Gmail app ?

    Gmail app. I would use the htc mail app, but it seems as though gmail mail receives it faster.

    That and... gmail seems to be built in. No point in using HTC mail because it'll have to sync too. Wasting more battery and memory by syncing through gmail and htc mail.

    Ok, that is what i wanted to confirm. If you were using the mail app from HTC i could see how this is a problem.

    Can you check your gmail account settings from a computer and make sure under the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" section that you have IMAP enabled?

    It's enabled of course. I don't know for sure, but I don't think I'd get emails if it wasn't enabled.

    You get e-mails just the same if its disabled. I just tested it :p

    I am having the exact same issue. it started after the MR. I have had it on a stock rooted setup as well as with Fresh .7. Would also love to figure this out, It's diving me nuts!!

    I'm running the .6 fresh rom and not having that problem at all. I wonder if there is some other app that is conflicting for you guys.. or if it is something .7 related. Have you talked to flipz yet over at XDA about it ?

    No, haven't talked to him yet.

    Funny... now my phone mailbox says (-4) due to some mixups because of facebook mail notifications on comments

    Did you ever find a fix to this problem? I am having the same issue?

    I had the same issue yesterday.



    What you are looking for is GMAIL and GMAIL STORAGE. If you don't see GMAIL STORAGE hit MENU<FILTER<ALL

    clear the cache on both of these. Then go back to home. THEN:


    That should fix the issue. A reboot wouldn't hurt either.
