    Default Stock Email Notifications not working after GB

    After I updated to GB I changed the update schedule on one of my email accounts and now none of them are updating. I have it set to check hourly between certain hours. As I recall it worked after the upgrade but stopped after I changed my settings. Anyone?
    Thanks!

    Make sure you've turned on background data and autosync. Menu-Settings-Accounts and Sync.

    One of my accounts no longer syncs automatically. Checked all settings, everything is correct, and it is set up to sync.

    UGH!

    I'm having the same problem. Email client doesn't check emails except manually, for me.

    I noticed I often have to manually sync gmail. It will say 1 email is in inbox but it never appears. I hit sync in the app and there it is.

    I have tried changing the times, turning on and off autosync, etc. It is syncing every now and then like 430am? No idea how else to fx except to delete and read the account. I dont want to do that if possible. Any other ideas?

    It won't let you delete the primary account. You'd have to do a factory reset afaik.

    The latest Gmail update changed a few sync settings, you need to change them back if you want your inbox to sync like priority inbox does.

    May thank. I have turned off the autosync for gmail but that did not help. Is this what you meant? The sync is working once a day and is moving. It started at 330am EDT, then next day was like 4AM, each day it seems to be advancing by 1/2 hour. Very weird. Otherwise it is not syncing when I restart the phone either.

    I think I resolved it. I just deleted each account and re-added it and it seems that this has worked. I still have google sync off and did not do it to the google account since I dont use it. Time will tell if it starts up right tomorrow morning.

    Well, so much for so much. First I did not uninstall the primary gmail addr. I had several other yahoo and other ID's im referring to. After re-adding them they worked until the auto time ended. They once again checked for emails at a strange time like 5am ( keeps advancing every night by 1/2 hour). Today it did not start up on its own and even when I pulled up the email using the stock email I had to hit refresh. Before the update it checked all the emails when I pulled up one, Now I have to do each individually. Ugh! got this phone the first day and its been nothing but grief all the way through. Would have been nice to have the opportunity to enjoy it.

    The only thing I can think of is the dreaded system restore. Maybe a different email app?

    Update - First many thanks to Defcon999 for the excellent suggestion to use MyBackupPro INSTEAD of Backup Assistant. It made it a lot easier. Stupid me to expect Verizon bload to work correctly. I did the dreaded factory reset and then re-set up the email and it all worked good. The trick has been going from peak to non-peak and then back to peak. I have non-peak as manual and before it was not starting up again when it hit peak. This morning it started up and worked correctly as best as I can tell. I set up 3 yahoo, an aol, and a gmail account and sent emails at different times to myself to test the pick up. Two of the accounts lagged a while but eventually picked up the emails. So far so good. And one other thing. I chose not to load any task killers and Im trying not to do any myself and leave it to Gingerbread to figure out. I know scary isnt it?

    Well, what a stupid piece of buggy crap this phone is. The emails worked the first day after the factory reset when I set them up. Most of them woke up after the off-peak period and updated the next day. By the end of that day however only one email was still syncing hourly as set up. Today none of the emails went back to syncing even though the settings showed it was set to update hourly. I was able to manually sync them but they did not go back to hourly even after that. So much for the miracle of factory reset. Did I mention buggy piece of crap yet?

    I've never tried to micromanage my email deliveries based on peak/non-peak. Mine have always worked flawlessly. Why not just forget all that peak/non-peak stuff and set them both the same? Just a thought.

    As for unneeded, unnecessary and ineffective factory resets... NO KIDDING!

    The reason I use peak/off peak is so that I dont get awakened all night long as spam email is sent to my accounts.Before I reset I downloaded Maildroid to try and get around the stock email app and it also stopped syncing after a day or 2. That says to me its the phone processes not the set ups, etc. Why I expect more from a phone that was shipped with a video camera that records no sound I dont know why. If I released software with such a basic bug Id have been fired. Cant tell me that no one tested the video camera before release, they had to know it didnt work as Im sure all the rest of the issues.

    inhale deeply - ok, my basic reason to go to verizon and the TB was because I could not receive phone calls at home on ATT because of their crappy service in this area. I will take a deep breath and be glad that at least the phone part works! For that at least I am ahead of the game. Therefore (LOL) If one is handed a thunderbolt, one must make thunderbolt aid!

    Im wondering. I created a second Gmail account and had the stock email app sync it along with the default Gmail, 3 yahoo, and AOL. I primed it periodically to see which would work. The two Gmail worked correctly and one of the 3 yahoos worked correctly. The AOL, no go. All get the email when I do it manually. First I thought it might be that POP is only available for yahoo in the paid yahoo plus which I dont have. When I look at how the email was set up to sync it is set as IMAP not POP. I researched it and as stated POP is only for the paid accounts in US. According to Wikipedia however, IMAP IS available for mobile devices only. If it didnt work it wouldnt work at all, not because a program cant track time.
    I thought to set up for GMAIL to manage them but Gmail doesnt allow you to select the frequency of the update, it chooses based on how frequently you get email. Here comes the wondering part, thanks for sticking in with itthe patter of the yahoo email syncs is like the frequency of the emails. One gets lots of stuff so its the one generally that works. A second gets some so it shows up like once or twice a day. He third gets very little so doesnt really show a lot at all. Finally, the AOL gets really nothing and it never seems to be one of those that work. Sounds like the Gmail rules to me.
    So I was wondering, could something Google be interfering with the process? I dont use GMAIL app, just stock, and I have notifications turned off for GMAIL app.
    Any thoughts?
