- I have 1 gmail account for my business/work related emails only I
- have an outlook.com account for my personal emails
- I have another gmail account for non-important things i.e. newsletters and freebie sites and other 'spam' type mail.
I would like to use the gmail app on my phone for the business emails only and I want to use the outlook.com app to take care of both personal and non-important emails.
Steps taken so far:
I have installed the outlook.com app on my nexus 5, running the latest android.
I have then added a secondary account to it, via the web interface on my computer. This is my second gmail account that is used for non-important things and is linked via the POP3 settings, and shows up as a separate folder next to the inbox/outbox in the outlook app.
The app is configured to notify me by both sound and vibrations (both options checked in the settings) - and it is configured to receive push notifications.
However, the app behaves quite strangely. For the main account (my @outlook.com address) the push notifications are pretty instant and the phone vibrates/makes a noise. For my secondary account (gmail linked via POP3) there is no notification, I see these updates when I open the app (it shows unread count). How can I make the phone notify me of ALL messages that appear in the outlook.com app.
