No e-mail sync or notifications
I have two non-gmail accounts set up on my cappy and neither one will work like they're supposed to. The only way to get my mail is to manually go into the mail app and individually go to the inboxes then they will scan and find my e-mails. It is set up to check every five minutes....any ideas? Same thing also happens with the facebook app (i've heard it sucks anyway) where I get no notifications.

*Set up your Gmail account to fetch mail from your other accounts (accessible in the Gmail settings online)
*You set it up exactly the way you would if it was a mail client (pop settings).
*Gmail then fetches mail (about every hour, varies a little bit, but never longer intervals than hourly)
*Set up your gmail account to sync gmail on your captivate (settings, accounts & sync, gmail, sync gmail).
*Every email fetched will show which email address it came from.
This method works well, because the Gmail app is very fluid and it utilizes push. As soon as mail is fetched and is present in your Gmail inbox, it will appear on your phone in probably less than a minute.

Re: No e-mail sync or notifications
Well my recommendation is to switch over to maildroid and do not use the stock Samsung email client! There were a couple of issues I had with the stock email app! One was the negative number on pop accounts and the headers were not right because the only email clients that ignore the mime header is Thunderbird and outlook but eudora and Mac mail would display gibberish! Maildroid fixed those issues!

If you are trying to retrieve pop email, you may have to change the port number to something other than the default (I think it's 25). For my host at hostgator - they also have port 26 for email. Once I changed the port, it worked fine.
The hostgator help section says that some wireless companies (att in my case) don't allow pop through port 25.
Hope that helps.

Tried to change the port but would not let any more than two numbers. I actually am trying to use these accounts as IMAP as opposed to POP. Now have a single, different, e-mail account in the mail app and no difference no matter what I fix. Any fix for the lack of facebook notifications as well? Would you guys swap it or is the other one gonna be the same as well?
