N73 not displaying "new email"

I have setup my N73 to connect to gmail via imap

First thing i have noticed that is when i go into messages i have "gmail" there but to the right hand side i have what looks like a purple egg timer which is slanted

So i click on that, then goto OPTIONS>EMAIL SETTINGS

then goto USER SETTINGS>NEW E-MAIL ALERTS and set this to ON

The problem is i get no notification on the standby screen telling me i have a new email. I have to go into messages then look for the red star on the left of my mailbox name

Am i missing something somewhere cause surely i should be notified of new emails (like you do when you get new SMS)

i experience the same problem. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

found it possibly has something to do with "send copy to self" option. when deactivating that, i ussually receive notifacations. but as soon as i've sent mail from the phone, even with "send copy to self" off, the phone still pics up on gMail's thread and download the sent message as new mail, which causes the notification to fail...

not much help i'm afraid, but you are not alone...

Was the solution to this problem found? I am experiencing this issue sometimes. Send copy to self is disabled in the settings. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it does not...

If there is a solution could someone post it / link to it? I was unable to google anything relevant out...

Thanks in advance.

Andrzej

For an old model like the N73, if whatever is the latest firmware doesn't fix it, then you'll have to live with the problem or switch to another phone (no more updates will come).

That's a major PITA... I am wondering what could have happened... it worked and it stopped all of the sudden. I had the same problem before and it fixed itself but I don't think it's going away now.

Thanks for Your reply / time.
