    I am not getting my gmail on my Eris.
    Everything else works fine. I am even getting mail
    from my other email accounts like yahoo and mac mail,
    but not gmail.

    However, if i open the gmail app and click "refresh"
    all my gmail pops up. So, in order for me to read my gmails
    i have to enter the application and click "refresh."
    All notfications are set to on, etc.

    Anyone know why this is happening?
    thanks!!!

    If you go to the settings > accounts & sync > click on your gmail account > is Sync Gmail checked?

    Tere, I was having this issue too. My gmail account was synced but I wasnt getting notifications. Try checking your wifi settings. Mine was off and when i checked the box to turn it on, i started getting notfications. It's still sporadic sometimes, but that helped alot.

    p.s. i am NO expert. This was just a freak discovery. good luck

    Forgot to mention, if you do go into settings >sync and un check /re check the sync box, it will reset and when I do that i immidiately get email notifications.

    it worked!! thank you!
    I just had to put a check in the gmail sync settings.
    Now i'm getting gmail on my Eris.

    One question: shouldn't i see a little number on the gmail icon,
    indicating how many emails I have received? or some other kind of indicator which tells me I got a GMAIL, and not an email from my other email accounts?
    I get an indicator (a number on top of the mailbox icon) for my other email accounts.
    Is there something like that for Gmail?
    thanks again!

    That did the trick, but I will keep in mind the wi-fi info,
    just in case it happens again. Thanks!!

    No, you'll just see an M up there to show you have new mail.
