Gmail secondary accounts not syncing after 2.2 Update

    I've seen info about this dotted around but I thought it would be good to bring this all together as it seems to be an issue across all devices and carriers.

    After updating to 2.2. on Wednesday my secondary gmail accounts (5 of them) will not sync automatically. I have to go into them and hit refresh. I tested this by sending the same email to all accounts from a non-gmail account. My main account got the email instantly on my Evo but the others are not showing the email (eventhough it is on gmail if I go on the web).

    I have not that some people resolved this by doing a total reset and others by removing the secondary accounts and going through a convoluted process to set them up again.

    I am hoping that Google is working on this since it's a bit ironic that it's own email is not working on it's own operating system.

    gmail push thread

    I caught this last night. pwnster clued me in on it. the threads already been started in google forum.

    hope this helps you guys with more than 1 gmail.

    also, posed the question of whether or not this same problem could be contributing to battery drain for some people. passed that along to people smarter than i am.

    I've tried everything that this google thread told me to do, but I still cant get my contacts to sync with my gmail account. I've never had a gmail account before, created one the day I got my Evo, so is there something I'm missing about syncing my contacts? All i need to do is sync contacts from my phone, login to gmail, click on contacts, and they should be there. Right? Or do I need to import them manually on my computer? I really would like to have my contacts on my gmail so that I can do a factory reset but my contacts are not showing up in gmail. Please help
