Can anyone please help me figure out the icon provided by me in the screenshot that appears on the top left corner of the notification bar which looks like a message box with an exclamation mark! Whether it is an app notification icon or android system based icon.

Top-left corner

  • Pull down the notification bar to see which is the app responsible for this

  • Being on the left side it is an app icon and not system icon

  • This looks like a mail client not able to send messages in outbox, due to poor connection or wrong outgoing server settings. Review the settings and try resending the message again, it will disappear Jun 4, 2017 at 7:12

You can pull down the notification bar, tap and hold on the notification and then tap "i" to show more information about the app that pushed the notification.

  • Thanks for your advise, was an issue with my mail client. However the notification icon wasn't showing any details but rather stayed static with that icon, even when I tried to swipe it off to clear. Thanks anyways.
