Notification Light with Incoming Email and Gmail update issues.

Hi,

 

How do I configure email to blink the notification light when an email is received?

Also, I have 3 email accounts configured: Exchange and 2 Gmail accounts. I changed the Gmail accounts to sync email every 15 minutes. The Exchange account works but not the gmail accounts. Gmail has IMAP already enabled.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

Re: Notification Light with Incoming Email and Gmail update issues.

The notification light only has options for new messages (SMS, VoiceMail, etc) and Missed Calls. I cant find the option for email.
For Gmail, mine worked when I used the normal Gmail icon when setting it up, but I didnt like it. I set up and Exchange email for my gmail so that it would sync my calendar as well. (The normal gmail option wont do this). I do remember with Anna that I had to DECLINE the terms of service when setting up the email for it to work. The last tidbit would be to check your retrieval settings. Mine first defaulted to 9am to 9pm Mon-Friday. Hope something helps.

Thanks for the response.

 

For the gmail issue, I think I believe I know what was going on. If you have two IMAP clients (i.e. phone and laptop), then gmail won't tell you of new email. I disabled my laptop's IMAP and things work. Also, the phone only lets you have one Exchange account which is why I have to use IMAP for my gmail accounts.

 

As for the notification light, I wish that functionality was implemented.

Just can't understand why there is no notification light for new email! Even whatsapp has an icon appears in the status bar when a new message arrives!
