- 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.11-12-2012 03:10 AM
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.11-13-2012 03:01 PM

- 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.01-08-2013 10:45 PM
- Nokia 820
Gmail update plain just sucks
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 ?01-09-2013 05:26 AM
- 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.01-09-2013 06:08 AM
- 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.01-09-2013 06:20 AM
