Why is GMail on my Android phone not working?

I have an Android 2.1 Motorola Defy. Recently, after doing a “restore to factory settings”, the default Gmail app suddenly won’t update unless I force refresh it (before it would automatically update without me having to do anything).

Also, any emails sent from the Gmail app are not sent and do not appear in my Gmail sent folder when I access Gmail on the PC.

Last of all, if I access emails on my Android and I delete or archive them, the changes are not reflected when I log back in on a PC. The emails I deleted / archived on my phone are sitting in the inbox unread.

IMAP and POP are both enabled so it’s not that.

Any ideas?
