    Hey guys, I don't get the notification anymore when I get a new e-mail.
    My battery is set to performance mode and my gmail settings say to notify automatically, but I don't get the notifications anymore.
    When I open up the gmail app, I have to click settings and refresh just to get the new e-mails.
    Anyone know what's up?

    Do you have 'Sync' enabled under 'Settings:Accounts:Gmail"?

    I have a google account there (my gmail address). There's no option to click "sync", I can only click sync gmail when I have it open.

    But I do have "email notifications" checked in the gmail app.

    add the "power widget" to a home screen. make sure the arrows forming a circle icon is enabled. thats the sync icon. every once in a while my sync gets disabled for some reason
    bear_lx and heelsbigc#AC like this.

    Click on the account. It will open up the sync page.

    Menu>Settings>Accounts>Choose the email account you want and turn on sync for email.

    Can someone clarify how the power widget helps this issues? I just got an S4 and the Gmail app notifies me with a quick vibration when I receive an email but that is all. It does not display unread messages the way the the email app does. Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a fix?

    Thanks!
