Email sync figured out!!!
Like everyone, I've been wondering why my email won't sync automatically anymore. When I first got my S5, emails would sync left and right and I would receive updated emails every 5 minutes...and then one day...no auto-sync
What I have tried:
-data mobile, data restrictions off and email still doesn't sync
-deleting the account, re-making the account, refreshes emails. *only lasts momentarily*
-and other various ways from people's advice.
WHAT WORKED!!! Directions below
-tap email application
-tap email account you use (....@gmail/yahoo/hotmail.com)
-tap sync settings and make sure SYNC EMAIL is checked
-tap sync schedule and while on this page
-set synch schedule to...(every 5 min. or every 10 min. whichever one you want)
-then go back one page where it then shows *While Roaming*
- two choices, manual or use above settings, and choose above settings!!!
- then go back and what I did, was turn off peak schedule
- after I exited and went back to my home page where the EMAIL APP was...VOILA!!! EMAIL synced and were refreshing every 5 minutes!!!
Hope this helps!! (I struggled for weeks trying to figure this out)
