    I have no problem with my Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or privately hosted email accounts. They all work fine. If you're fussed over GMail not being pushed I real time I suggest you create an outlook account and have your Gmail forwarded to it. The delay should be very small.

    You could have just created one outlook address with a alias for the secondary address. This way you have only one outlook account to go to/manage.

    omg

    this works

    add forwarding from the gmail to outlook and it totally looks like your sending gmails from outlook

    still need to setup gmail on it for calander and contacts, but that can be on hourly syncs

    I'm having real issues with this too. Gmail just loops and hasn't updated in hours. Setup as standard account not exchange.

    I currently have my yahoo address pulling into my gmail account. I can send as either account. From my android I can send as either address. I could forward everything to outlook.com but I want to ensure I retain the ability to send as @gmail.com or @yahoo.com

    This is a bit of a show stopper for me.

    If you go into the sync settings for your phone's Outlook account, there should be a field that says "Email address". Make sure that says ****@gmail.com and any emails you send should report themselves as being from gmail.

    Personally, I think this has something to do with Microsoft trying to decide what to put in Windows 8RT vs. Windows 8 Pro. The only problem I'm having is when I turn off the Cellular data and try to use company network that is behind a firewall. My company Exchange works fine because it's on the same side of the firewall, but my POP3 that is on the outside FAILS miserably. If I turn off the Wireless and then turn on the Cellular data the POP3 works fine. It seems to have something to do with the Corporate Network (Enterprise) and/or the Firewall that is perhaps blocking something.

    I'm also using Android devices and iPad/iPhone devices and NONE of them have the problem the Windows Phone 8 (Lumia 822) has. And these problems do not persist anywhere except at work. Home network is super fast and no connection issues at all.

    I have tried it with it setup as exchange and the default

    I have it set as items arrive

    Sometimes its instant, sometimes 5 minutes, several time its been nearly 30 and I've gone and refreshed manually.

    signal not the issue, 10 to 18mbps at home and 2 to 3.5mbps at work

    3 days of poor email delivery reliability

    the .live.co.uk one is lighting fast

    just the gmail sucks

    Pity Cause I do love the OS

    ideas ?
    Ditch Gmail and go Outlook.com much better, faster and less spam on ANY platform WP, Android or iOS.

    I think it's google's fault.
    I don't get any push notification on my iPhone, so it's not a WP problem.

    I think I'll redirect all my emails to my new outlook account as soon as I have my new Lumia 820!

    Google has crippled functionality of a number of its products in Windows Phone on purpose by failing to give Microsoft access to APIs necessary to access their services well - Google is very simply trying to force people into Android. You should be complaining to Google, not here.

    So, you basically have a choice:
    1) Capitulate to Google and let their anti-consumer behaviors dictate your phone choice
    2) Dump Google's services in protest of their purposefully poor support

    Personally I'd go with 2) just because I don't want Google indirectly dictating what phone I buy and Outlook.com is way better than Gmail anyway, but YMMV.

    I am starting to seriously consider going back to Android. And the more I think about it, what exactly would we not be able to do anymore if switching from WP8 to Android? I can't think of anything to be honest. And I hate to say it, but I can think of several things I can't do with WP that I can with Android. If anything keeps me on WP, it would be how much I like the 920, especially the camera, which has nothing to do with the OS. Now I have to figure out if that is enough reason to stay.

    as someone who went back to Android yesterday and is now back on my WP8, i missed the OS fluidity. And at least i know now that Microsoft plans to support their phones for 18 months.....that alone is reason to stay with Microsoft simply because no android phone(except a nexus maybe) gets that much support except MAYBE a Samsung or Motorola product and even then...it really depends.
