On my Samsung Galaxy S, gmail only loads new emails when I press the 'refresh' button.
Is this normal ? Or should I set some options somewhere ?
I thought gmail should push emails to the phone.

In answer to my own question (and in thanks for the answer already provided), but the problem was that in my office, my phone uses Wifi router which is connected to the internet via a firewall . And on this firewall one of the necessary imap ports was blocked.
My collegue changed this setting , and now gmail is behaving as expected.
I am really not in the habit of choosing my own answers as the selected answer, but for this question, this was the solution.
Hope it helps others !
