Gmail - completely stopped working on my phone
What gives? Hop on my computer, and I have like 8 new e-mails that didn't show up on my phone. Auto sync was on, and I have a good signal (and wifi), and I have NOTHING. I tried manual refresh... the sync icon pops up on top of the screen, but the e-mail doesn't refresh. In fact, it doesn't show any e-mails from the past several hours, despite them clearly being on my account. I don't even think it's sending, and when I scroll to the bottom of my inbox it says "Loading Conversations," and then "Connection Failed". Makes no sense because I can browse the internet using the phone's browser and wifi.
Um, what's going on here? This is quite bad.

what email app are you using (HTC app or gmail app)?
are you using pop3 or imap.
are you using pop3 or imap on your computer?
is the inc set to delete on server? is you computer set to delete on server.
is the computer checking your mail when you are not in front of it (autocheck or the like)

Got it fixed... did the "Clear Data" thing under Gmail storage, and it reset itself. This better be a one-time thing... not cool to find out a bunch of e-mails have been sitting unread all day (kinda important for me).
For what it's worth, turning off wifi did NOT fix it, although I will say my wifi router had a problem before this happened last night, causing me to have to reset it. Maybe related? Who knows.
