    Does anybody have any problems with backgrounder?

    The app works; however, my mail boxes don't get updated through push, even though my push settings for mail are on.

    My mail gets updated only when I open the mail app.The push notifications for other apps work great though.

    If I uninstall backgrounder, my mail app works great with push.
    It's a shame because I really really need it :(

    i dont think backgrounder had anything to do with it....once you jb, your push is jacked up. but there are fixes in cydia for this.

    Strange, I use Backgrounder every day and my Fetch-based email checks work just fine. What happens if you set yours to Fetch instead of Push?

    Same issue discussed here
    It's not Backgrounder causing the issue. Check the last post...

    I caught that, but no I don't have that installed

    and as mentioned above. push gets broken once you move to another network that is not at&t. I'm still on at&t and once I remove backgrounder it works

    I got rid of winterboard also, just to make sure it wasn't conflicting.
    I have status notifier
    five icon
    ireal quick sms

    OK then, within Backgrounder > Application-specific > Blacklisted
    what happens if you de-select/re-select Mail ?

    I found an issue with Backgrounder:

    I use HanDBase for as my database manager. Unfortunately, whenever I run this app in the background, it frequently loses my data entry. I was able to reproduce this error consistently, so I no longer run it in the background.

    That's not true. If you unlock and then hacktivate your phone on a network other than AT&T's network you can jack up your push, but simply jailbreaking and activating normally on AT&T's network is the same as activating a non-JB'd phone on their network.
