    Default Strange Mail Problem

    Hi folks.

    My Note 3 has suddenly developed a strange problem. I use Gmail and until today when I received a new email I'd get one gmail notification. However now I'm getting a notification for Gmail AND a notification for the built-in email app. What's changed and how do I change it back?

    Thank you.

    I don't know what may have changed but to stop the stock app go into Settings Accounts and turn off sync on that stock app. You'll still get the gmail notifications.

    That worked, thanks. I've also got no idea what happened. I've been at work all day and certainly haven't been mucking around with the phone. Very strange.

    Anyway, thanks very much for fixing it for me.

    If you don't have an email account set up through the stock email client you shouldn't receive a notification. Do you have your Gmail set up in both apps?

    I do Mike. Should I delete my Gmail account in the stock client or just leave things as they are? I'm not getting double notifications now anyway. What's the general view of the stock app anyway when compared with the gmail app?

    I would totally delete Gmail from the stock app. To me the Gmail app is much nicer. Is there a reason you need it in both?

    No, no reason. To be honest I came from an iPhone to this monster with no previous experience of android so I just did "everything".

    So is the stock app still using battery monitoring an email address when I've no intention of using it?

    No, not if sync is turned off.

    Delete the account from the stock app and just leave the Gmail one!
