Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0.1, all other apps seem to sync and notifiy fine. The email app has the settings:

  • Inbox update frequency: 5 mins
  • Email notification: Checked

It doesn't appear to be syncing at all, however as soon as I open the app it goes and gets all the new emails from the point I last closed the app.


Is the following settings enabled in Settings -> Account & Sync:

  • Bakcground Data,
  • Auto-sync
  • 'Sync Gmail' inside your email account
  • I believe DanH is asking about the Email app, not Gmail.

  • True, but Email app appears to have exactly the same setting there which was turned off. I'll wait 5 minutes and make sure it worked, but I think we have a winner :D

  • Strange that this setting is not accessible from within the Email app interface though, at least as far as my endless manic button mashing can tell.

  • Hmmm, curiously this setting appears to have made no difference

  • OK finally seems to be working now
