    Lately I find that the rotating circle notification won't stop. It apparently is K-9 checking for new Gmail.
    The only way I can stop the notification is to Force Stop the K-9 app.

    Is this a common problem and is there a fix for it?

    Go into your K-9 Mail menu and tap on 'Settings', then 'Account settings', then 'Notifications'. In the Notifications menu there are numerous options, along with LED settings and what shows up in the status bar.

    Another option you might also want to think about just disabling the auto-checking of your email completely, and whenever you do want to check it just start up the K-9 Mail app and tap the 'Refresh' button at the bottom to manually load up any new emails. (Look at 'Settings' >>> 'Global settings' >> 'Network' >> 'Background sync'
