    For whatever reason, Android is very slow to sync, especially the first time. Are you getting any errors? Is the sync symbol showing in the status bar?

    3 accounts - you need to remember, that could be a lot of data being transferred. Are you attempting this on 3G or wifi?

    I saw a weird thing when I created mine. When you put the info in it does not ask for the smtp info until you enter your pop3 info then go back. until you finish all the info it will never sync. once you do it is quick .... a few seconds.

    From the home screen, go to menu, settings, accounts & sync, click on each gmail account and make sure Inbox is checked, then hit sync now at the bottom of the screen.

    If these are gmail accounts you should be using the included gmail app to add them to your phone.
