View Full Version : Email not autosyncing on Droid X, Gingerbread

Since I've upgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.3 my email accounts don't auto-sync anymore. I can manually do a sync.
I have tried everything I have found in the forums....like removing the battery, deleting email accounts and re-entering them...etc.
I have tried changing battery saver to performance mode.
I have tried changing sync options for my email accounts fetch schedule from 15 to 30 or other minutes.

Bottom line is....email accounts still don't auto-sync. I can go into the Messaging application and hit sync and it works fine.
I didn't have this problem when I upgraded previous OS levels...just this one. It will not autosync email period.

Another problem I have with this release is that I have several shortcuts on my screens to apps that now when I click on them it says app not installed.
For example....the FM radio application. When I click on the shortcut it says not installed. HOWEVER...when I delete that shortcut...and copy a new shortcut...it works fine.

For your emails, go into settings > applications > manage applications, then go to your email and clear data. You'll have resign in and setup but your emails should resync.

I have removed and re-entered my emails addresses as stated in my original post.

your app shortcuts not working is not a problem. with the upgrade moto also slightly changed several apps therefore making it a new app so your shortcut will be broken. you have obviously already found the solution.

It's not the emails themselves..it's the app the email is using that's not resyncing...which is why I suggested what I did.
