This is a problem that suddenly appeared (or rather didn't!) on my Nexus One running Cyanogenmod 7.

It was fine and then all of a sudden I could no longer load any emails in any of the labels, it just says "loading conversations" but never loads or times out. Search is affected the same way.

I don't often have to use labels so I put up with it. However, it is still happening on my new Samsung Galaxy S2.

Choosing to sync specific labels for offline access means I can get to them fine, but it's impractical for all labels.

As suggested by Google mobile help I tried deleting the data for the Gmail app (though there is no additional "gmail mail storage" app) and rebooting before re-syncing, to no avail.

During all this I have always been able to access labels on my 2.2 tablet and having just reinstalled CM7 on my Nexus One am now able to access them fine.

Any ideas?

Well, looks like the issue resolved itself, though I'm at a complete loss as to how. If anyone has any ideas, I'd still be interested in case it happens in future. – collabeta Jun 18 '11 at 12:54

Ok, so this problem reoccurred a couple more times until I realised it seemed to happen after my phone restarts and sorts itself out after killing a few running services I didn't need.

I narrowed it down to an app called Announcify.

The lesson for me, and others, is to try selectively killing services to troubleshoot any such problems in future.
