    I'm having this issue with my Gmail on the iPhone. It autochecks, receives a new message, downloads it, and does the "new mail" sound. But then if I go into the Mail app to look at it shortly after the sound, the message disappears. It then autochecks, downloads the same message again, and gives the sound.

    This seems to be pretty consistent, I very often notice hearing 2 "new mail" sounds and then only see 1 new message. I also don't know if this is a 3.1 thing, because I don't recall this ever happening before a few weeks ago.

    Any thoughts?

    Edit: For clarification, I am using Gmail over IMAP, not Google Sync/Exchange.

    same problem here... i have to refresh the email, and then it usually stays in the inbox.

    I've had similar issues on occasion with MobileMe push too. Must be a 3.1 issue.

    i figured it was either 3.1 or gmail messing about with trying to get push working, i noticed it after 3.1 but when gmail released push i figured that could have done it.

    Yeah, but isn't the Gmail push only truly push when you're using Google Sync / Exchange?
