E71: Stopped receiving email notifications on home screen

I am not getting any email notifications whatsoever on my E71 homescreen, I only have my gmail account setup on imap. But all I get on the homescreen is the small @ on the upper right hand corner. And I have done everything, gone into personalization and enabled email notification 1, set the email notification to gmail, and set up new email alert to 'On' in the email settings, I've even done a hard reset. But no luck. What gives, I used to get email notifications then it just stopped.

Have a look in the active standby plugins and enable the email plugin.

Re: E71: Stopped receiving email notifications on home screen

I figured it out, my email account was gmail set to imap, when you setup imap as well as automatic retrieval the phone downloads your entire inbox, so if you have thousands of messages in your inbox like I did, the phone gets overwhelmed and stops displaying notifications on the main screen. When the went on and archived all my old mail on gmail, the problem was gone.
