    Weip, I use Pure Messenger widget, which has a full screen scrollable widget, and skinable, that works with Go Launcher EX and a few other launchers. And I use K9FP which works with Pure Messenger widget.

    I get my emails, Yahoo and gmail on a home screen and all my email notifications without fail.

    I guess it depends on what you want out of your phone. Pure Messenger widget is payware, but cheap. Go Launcher EX is free, K9FP is free.

    The default email clients don't work right, never have........

    Edit;
    Or try the regular K9 email client, free and in the Market....

    I have had this same issue for the past few weeks now (no notifications in the status bar, no sounds). I have missed out on some opportunities (work related, slick deals etc) due to this bug by not getting notified promptly, it has definitely been a annoying bug.

    I have tried everything as far re-installing yahoo mail app, trying other apps such as K-9, changing all different kinds of settings within android and within the yahoo app.

    However, I got the notifications to work today! (knock on wood)

    I went to:

    Options >> General Settings >> About Mail >> Report a Problem

    and I reported the issue through the app, saying something along the lines of "I am not getting notifications in the status bar on my Android device. It used to work just fine"

    Within 30 minutes of me sending that report, my notifications started working again! It could be a coincidence. Or perhaps Yahoo did something on the backend. I am not sure, but it is defintely worth a try for those of you still having trouble.

    BTW, I do use Gmail and it is great, but I just prefer to use both. Dammit I use too much Googles! (Search, Gmail, Chrome, Android, Voice, Plus, Maps, Docs etc)

    I tried the Yahoo app & had the same issues so I deleted it & just added my Yahoo account to the native mail app & I haven't had an issue with missed notifications since. I think there's an issue with the app running on the Evo because I know a few people that had this same issue.
