    I've noticed that for the last couple of days my Gmail app hasn't been notifying me of new mails unless I open the app.
    Thing is, I don't seem to have an option to change the frequency of send/receive.
    Googling reveals that it's under "Gmail," "menu," "more," "settings," then "send/receive." Thing is, I no longer seem to have a send/receive option to access? I'm sure there used to be, and it's there for the htc Mail app, but I cannot find the Gmail one.

    So, old age setting in? why can't I find it? any help gratefully received...

    EDIT: Sorry, after reading the feedback for the app, it looks as if it's a problem with the app itself and isn't resolvable until they update it. unless anyone knows differently of course

    I don't know about the bug, but the fact you can't set the frequency of the send/receive is because gmail uses a different form of communication with the server. When you get an email, the server tells the phone; so the phone doesn't need to keep checking in and wasting battery :)

    Ah Ok,thanks for that.
    Strangely, it all appears to be working this morning, it just seems to be glitchy. Hopefully they'll release an update soon to fox the problem.

    (Sorry for putting this in the wrong section too :eek: )
