Messages (mail) app keeps hanging / won't refresh or get new messages

I've been having an issue with my playbook since pre-OS2 where the messages app won't refresh / download new messages.  When this happens, doing the scrollup/refresh won't work, closing and starting the app won't work, so i have to reboot the tablet and then mail will start flowing again.

 

I currently have the following accounts configured...

1x twitter

1x linkedin

2 x google apps premier

1 x facebook

 

Any suggestions?

Re: Messages (mail) app keeps hanging / won't refresh or get new messages

I also find the email app to be very unstable resulting in numerous reboots to get the native email client to become active again.  I am running the latest OS and need to restart 2 to 3 times per day.  It would be beneficial if there was a way to just "kill" the email app and restart the app.  I find if I just close the email app it is still hung if I reopen the app.  The only way to get it working again is with a system restart.

 

If anyone has any ideas of how to resolve this problem please let me know.

yes my issue exactly.  Agree that an "app kill" ability would be a godsend since rebooting is painfullys slow.

 

Anyone know of a solution to this?

I am also having many issues with the mail app. It will not pull in all the messages and I know there are messages as I see numerous ones on my BB bridge  

- it automatically deletes messages after a day  or two,

- the options that are supposed to exist for this app are no where to be found.

- it will not sync my contacts with the contacts on my BB bold. I have to enter each one individually.

And finally - rebooting does not solve any of these issues - It simply is not working the way it is supposed to.

I have the same problem. However I find that if I turn off the WIFI connection for a few seconds then turn it back on, my messages load on to the PB.

Thank you - have tried your suggestion  - still not working properly. Not getting some of the messages that I should, still deleted messages automatically. I have rechecked the account settings and advanced setting - these are correct.

Another poster had the same problem. The culprit was the Facebook account. I believe it was deleted and pb was rebooted and re installed the fb account.

Same issue and restarting the whole system is the only thing that works.  Even that sometimes doesn't work.  WIFi cycle does not help.  I have 3 Gmail accounts configured but no other complexity.  Simple email.

Messages app is not usable in this unreliable attention.  I hope RIM comes up with a solution soon.

Adventuresome,
Have you tried deleting all your Gmail accounts, do a reboot of the PlayBook and then reinstall all your accounts. When you do this, disconnect your phone and turn off Bluetooth etc when you reset your accounts. Let me know the results.
