    Default 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 settings
    -tap email application
    -manage accounts
    -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)

    Glad you got it working But if you have an Exchange account, you shouldn't be setting it to check every 5 minutes as this will drain your battery faster. Most e-mail accounts these days support Push messages.
