For some reason Gmail won't sync to my phone. When i signed in with an account settings-->accounts-->google i entered my email address. Then I unselected everything for sync but the Gmail because Gmail is the only Google product I want synced on my phone. The problem is when i send a test email to my account through another email address I don't get a notification on my phone and I have to select the Gmail app then refresh and then the new email will appear.
Ideally if someone sends me a new email I will get a notification and I will know immediacy and I won't have to manually refresh the Gmail app to check for new emails. Is there something in the settings that I'm missing?
