    Really weird thing...

    My Hero has been synching perfectly for months. I wake up today and saw I had no emails. I logged into my PC and saw that there were 5 unread emails.

    I thought this was just the 'clear data' in applications fix. Well I did that. It didn't work. So I checked all my settings to make sure that it was enabled to download automatically, thinking I changed something accidentally. Still, everything was right.

    So I tried a couple other things. Including, soft reset, taking battery out reset, and even a complete wipe to factory. I set up my Gmail again, still nothing. I then even tried a Sprint ROM. Still nothing.

    So...my last idea was to log into another Google account I rarely use. Well that one synced my email perfectly in like, 3 seconds. I can't find for the life of me what is going on with my Google account.

    Does anyone have any fixes to this? I really do not want to start another email account....everything I have is set up to this one.

    You know, some days my mail is really slow to come in. If I reboot, or go to airplane mode, than back to normal it seems to help.

    the thing is that it is instant while testing my other google account...

    I was chatting with one of the other staff members today, and they were having troubles even opening their gmail...

    ^ That would be me!

    Gmail on my Epic, the wife's Evo and my old Hero have been buggy for the past 2 days (consistently). Sometimes nothing happens, othertimes it freezes on updating, etc.

    No idea why/how though. Clearing data/cache doesn't do anything either. Maybe it's something on Google's end?

    Well...maybe its a Google thing. I can't figure it out. I went far beyond normal trouble shooting by trying different Roms and hard resetting. I definitely pegged it down to my actual Gmail account. Who know, maybe Google is having some issues with different servers or services???? Maybe my one account is attached to the buggyness and the other not? Is that even probable?

    ^ I would assume so?

    The weird thing is is one minute it works and the next it doesn't.

    Well, thankfully Gmail has a great forwarding tool...it keeps the email in my main box and forwards to my other Gmail. I am going to do this for a while and check back on that other email address after I am done being frustrated at Google.

    New Development.

    I've found that when I have both Gmail accounts, one forwarding to the other, that the one which was not synching, is now syncing - meaning I'm getting two notifications. But if I remove the Gmail that it is being forwarded to, I don't get any notifications.
