Motorola Droid :: Email Messages Not Arriving Automatically
Jan 2, 2010
When I first got my new DROID a few weeks ago, new email messages arrived and I was notified by a ringtone, and a blinking green light in the upper right corner. Now that has stopped completely. If I want to check for new email messages I have to manually start the email app and manually select refresh for the app to go out and look for new messages (via Yahoo pop mail). What happened? Is there a simple setting somewhere that got switched?
I have setup three imap email accounts on my new DROID and for the most part they are working great. The only problem I seem to be having is they will not check for messages every 5 minutes like I have it setup to do. If I open each folder it will check and download fine but no alerts or downloads without me checking.
I'm upgrading from my Droid 1 to the Droid X tomorrow and would like to start my use of the DX with it's new 32gb card in place of my old 16gb card from my Droid 1 but need to know if there's anything required to copy from my droid 1 16gb card to my new DX 32 gb card that would be required or helpful in the DX use.I will obviously transfer music/vids/pics but are there any essential files, apps, etc. that are needed.Or is it a good idea to use my paid MyBackupPro to copy the old Droid 1 apps/data for use in the DX larger memory card or is this not copatible to perform between the 2 devices?
I just upgraded from the Droid to the Droid X and am now having a problem. The email I receive through gmail works fine with emails arriving automatically and the notification settings working. The problem is with the regular email program that comes with the phone and my Yahoo account. Even though I believe I have it set up to automatically check email and to receive notification when it arrives, I only get new email when I manually open the app.
Anyone else getting full HTML email properly in their corporate exchange accounts? All my gmail based accounts are showing up with HTML formatted messages as they should but all of the HTML formatted messages on my exchange account end up looking like markup language. I turned off the accept all certs and I'm now able to properly download attachments from exchange just not able to get HTML emails to display properly.
Just curious, it's taking some serious getting used to this phone but I have a question about the messages box. Why is it that I have an separate icon for GMAIL, EMAIL , and MESSAGES? Why is Gmail separate from the "email" icon? and why can't I have my email and gmail as an icon in my messages box which currently houses the universal inbox, facebook, and twitter, and text messaging?
Is there any way to separate alerts for text messages and email? I've called Verizon Support and looked for apps without success. I don't care when I get an email but I have missed several texts because the alert tone is the same and I just ignored it thinking it was more unimportant email.
Anyone know how to setup notifications per user for email and text messages? Applications or setup are find. The one feature i miss the most from blackberry to android, that i have not found a work around.
I can access my AOL, Comcast and obviously Gmail with no problems on my Droid. However I want to be able to access my companies email I have set up through powweb.com (they host my website). Anyway I keep getting error messages that it could not finish set up or sometimes it says Error: check user and password details. I triple checked and made sure I was putting in the right info and then I even went on the powweb website and made sure I was putting in the correct settings and even contacted someone there and they gave me some info to try and help and I am still getting error messages. I have tried POP and IMAP. The exchange account, is a fee based account.
I might be leaving my incredible to come to the Droid X bc I'm having a lot of problems. I don't want to switch to another phone and have a lot of problems. I'm having random restarts, mms messages not downloading, blown speakers, email not working with aol. Yeah so what problems are happining with the Droid X?
So I was using my the handcent sms app on my Droid today and all a sudden the person i was sending messages to was receiving the messages 3 times. Then all a sudden when i went back to text someone else my whole thread was gone and all my messages had been deleted. Then I try using the stock messaging app and obviously all my threads are deleted but messages send twice, any suggestions?
Anyone having issues with gmail and their evo today? Nothing has changed in my settings / haven't installed anything new in the past few days but gmail isn't downloading new messages automatically. I can open the gmail app and manually sync it and new messages will show up but outside of that there is nothing doing.
I have a HTC Desire, running Froyo on the o2 network. My text messages automatically deleted during the middle of the night, this has happened once before... but paid no attention to it, thinking it a one off. Has this happen to anyone else?
I hope nobody's already answered this somewhere -- I've been searching for a few days now with no luck. I'm wanting to disable the audio in received mms messages. I absolutely loath those messages that scream, blare music, say offensive stuff, etc. With my old Lotus, you actually had to choose to play the attached audio, but I can't find anything anywhere to set this on my new Evo. If anyone knows how to either make the audio in messages manual instead of automatic, or just disable their audio completely, I'd be eternally grateful to learn this!
how to set a profile of a location and have my phone compose a text when I arrive there. However, I only want this to happen if I have arrived at location B after leaving location A. Basically, its so when I leave my parents house and arrive back at my college dorm I want it to auto send a text but I do not want it to send the text every time I arrive at my dorm.
I noticed a thread in the HTC Hero about something called ChompSMS that stops this. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do so that I still get a notification (vibrate/sound) that I have a text message or an email, but nobody can SEE those messages on my lock screen?
Every few weeks or so my Droid keeps deleting all of my texts. No message with it or anything I just open my texts and there all gone. What the hell is causing this? I told verizon about a half dozen times and they told me that its impossible that its doing this.
Whats the deal with receiving pic messages on this phone? When I get a pic messages it doesn't automatically download it, it prompts me to download and sometimes it won't download. I've checked the settings but cant find anything that will let me automatically download.
I love Handcent but this inability to resend automatically is killing me. I don't have good signal at home (basement flat), so I often send a message and then just wait for the signal to drift in, so it sends. My old blackberry or Nokia had no problems with this. Handcent doesn't handle it well. it either gets stuck with the little whirling whindmill thing and never sends, or it comes up with the red X and the process stalls. I actually prefer the red X, as at least that enables a quick "retry". but it seems to be totally random whether it gets stuck or fails to send. Why oh why is such a simple feature not bug-free in an app like Handcent that is so popular and has been around for some time now?
Is it possible to have all SMS (text messages) automatically stored to the SD card? I recently had to reflash my ROM and as such have lost all the messages I had stored - about 800 or so from my partner and a few semi-important ones from both work and my basketball coach.
I recently switched from sense to home and I have a little problem.My email and messages icons dont have the notification icon when I receive my emails.Usually if you have two or three new emails it says so on the icon, well im not getting this.I am getting the notification icon up the task bar, but not on the icon.What to do?
I am relatively new to Android. Just got a Droid 4. As part of the setup, I added my gmail accounts. On the regular web interface, I have about 20 labels (folder) to archive the old messages. Then, I also had about 80 messages left in the inbox. Five days later, all of a sudden, I only have 1 message (a chat converted info a message 2 months ago) left in the inbox. Everything else in the inbox is gone. If I use the gmail app on the phone, that's what I see as well.
However, if I use the "mail" app on the phone, I am still seeing all the messages originally in the inbox. And the inbox is associated with my gmail account.
Now, comes the question: how can I restore all the email messages viewable by the "mail" app back into the inbox viewable by the "gmail" app, which is also the inbox in the web interface on my computer?
I just received a replacement N1 because my original unit accumulated quite a bit of dust under the screen. Anyway, ever since I transitioned to the replacement unit I've been noticing some strange behavior in my Gmail accounts, namely the fact that all my new email messages are being automatically marked as read. It doesn't happen immediately as best as I can tell, but probably in the neighborhood of 30-60 minutes after they are received.Has anyone else ever come across this issue and can advise me of a solution?
