    Try this (if you haven't already):

    Go to Power Control widget (in Apps). 2nd icon from the right controls sync/refresh or whatever. If it isn't highlighted, Gmail doesn't check mail in real time. Something like that.

    I checked it. It is on. The contacts and calendar sync is working perfectly fine. Here is something weird i noticed. My Gmail app is not working now. Not getting email. When i search for Gmail app in the market place i am unable to see the app for my samsung captivate. I know the gmail app got upgraded to 2.2. may be that is causing instability on 2.1 devices that came without gmail preloaded????? Anyone else seeing this?

    My gmail's working fine. Try rebooting your phone. That usually clears up emai/sms issues for me.

    I rebooted the phone (holding volume and power button down) twice but the problem still persists..i am going to try another method of hard reset and see if it clears it..or i have to do the painful factory reset :thinking:

    Did you add any new apps recently?

    Yes. That's what I would do. Sorry you have to go through that, but better that than a hard reset.

    I tried all stunts. Nothing seem to revive my gmail app. I uninstalled ADW launcher and all related things to that (like ADW themes etc.) and i did a hard restart (removed the battery and booted again). Gmail app is still not working. also, i am unable to see Gmail app in the market place for my samsung captivate. Does this mean that i have to give up and do a factory reset and reinstall all apps again?

    Have you uninstalled your Task Killer? That seems to resolve this particular issue with a lot of folks.
