    Just so you know, this problem doesn't affect everyone. I've never had a problem using Exchange (or Gmail) on my G2 using WI-FI and cellular. It has all available updates and is not rooted. I've had it since November (until which I used a Palm Pre-2). It's a VS98011A running Android 4.2.2. The standard email program is set to check mail every 15 minutes in both Exchange and Gmail. I don't really know if I'm using "push". Maybe the phone has to poll every 15 minutes. Exchange has zillions of settings. I'm guessing a setting in Exchange would fix problems like this though I don't really know. My company has many different smartphone makes, models, and ages using Exchange (2012 I believe) without issues. My contacts and calendar also sync fine with Exchange and Gmail.

    1- I don't believe you're running the 12B update
    2- 15 minute sync means you're not using push

    either of those settings means u aren't affected at all.

    fwiw I've been using touchdown for years. it's by far the best mobile email experience available and has a TON of settings like quiet times, remote touchdown app wipe, and tasks support. if you depend on email to do your job and get dozens of emails per day than u need touchdown. it makes life better.

    Same boat here. And every time I make any changes to the email client I have to put in a helpdesk ticket because my IT team wont provide the information. Therefore pretty sure Touchdown is not an option for me (although it's my phone, they're pretty strict about how you access their servers). Just piling on this thread in hopes we get some tech support because I haven't even seen evidence they're looking into it yet. This was exactly why I was hesitant to get an LG.

    Touchdown will still comply with the same security and secure access needs for Exchange. It's just a client other than the stock client. And honestly, since I have switched to Touchdown, I enjoy the experience so much more than any other stock clients I have used previously(HTC, LG, Samsung and Samsung Nexus). And maybe a little advice... Save your exchange settings somewhere, once you have them, they should not change and you shouldn't need a ticket every time you are setting up your mobile client, no matter what OS or client you use.

    Good ol' AC. Have been dealing with this issue for a week, and had been blaming my company for it (should've known to check here.) My company requires us to change passwords every 90 days. I did not experience any problems with my Exchange email (the only one I use the native client for) until after I changed the password; then it just stopped working altogether. The coincidence of the timing - in addition to past issues on a prior smartphone - led me to assume it was an issue with our company's email servers. But, when they couldn't solve the problem, I began searching online and found this thread. I've tried all the usual tricks - including nearly all those mentioned in the very long thread over at Verizon Communities; still no love. As of yesterday, I began using Touchdown for now (complies with my company's security requirements), but it is far less than ideal, and I'm not happy that I'll have to start paying for it if this issue isn't resolved in 30 days. I'm mostly pissed because this update was apparently pushed to my phone without my consent. I never install updates until I've researched them, and certainly would not have installed this one. It's completely hobbled my phone for business use. Anyway, I'll keep my eye on this thread and the one over at VZW and hope for a fix sooner rather than later. Either that, or release KitKat, though I understand it has its own issues. *sigh*

    Save them even if its on a piece of paper. I have taken the setting and used them on iPhones android phones to include a multitude of different email apps and now on my Lumia Icon. That ticket nonsense is to scare away those who aren't confident in their tech abilities. Unless of course they use certificates.

    Had terrible problems with stock email not pushing. Got it at best to sync at 5 minute intervals by going into system settings, accounts and sync then checking the top box named Auto sync data. When checked i went back to email settings and was able to choose 5 minute instead of doing it manually, which is a pain if you forget and are late receiving anything important.
    Hope this helps some of you out.

    and with this update Email seems to be functioning properly again. we only had to wait 4 months to get what was originally working well in the phone. albeit that even outlook.com email syncs with html now which it wouldn't previously.

    Yes, working well. It really is annoying it took this long to fix. A month ago when I spoke with Verizon, the tech said this was a known bug. They charge you hundreds for the service, but then can't get one of the most critical and valuable features for which we have these phones, updated when it's not working. Now there are other little bugs to deal with, but at least this is working. Hate to say this, never had these problems with the last two Samsung phones. There's a reason they're number one with Android phone sales.

    Yeah. Mass production and marketing! They still don't offer the best product.

    Thank the Lords of Kobol! It worked for me, too.

    I'd read that there may be a few other minor issues with Kitkat, but after doing some research here on AC and elsewhere, there don't seem to be any major complaints, and I need my Exchange account to work properly again, so I went ahead and installed the upgrade.

    It definitely fixed the Exchange problem.

    ONE NOTE, though: if you are/were using Touchdown for Exchange mail after 12B broke it (as I was), make sure to UNINSTALL Touchdown before you try to set up your Exchange mail on the native client again. I did not, and it took several tries before I could get Touchdown to stop intercepting/interfering with the native client. I finally had to completely uninstall the app, but once I that the native client worked like a charm again.

    To uninstall Touchdown go to Settings>General>Application Manager>Menu Button>Uninstall Apps and then select Touchdown. Simply moving it to the recycle bin won't do it.

    Happy Exchange mailing all!

    Sad thing is gave up this phone to my other half and got something else to fulfill my needs. While setting up exchange for her I saw how nice the phone was again.

    HOLD THE PRESSES!!!

    So, everything was working fine for a couple hours, but now I'm experiencing the exact same problem I had before the Kitkat update: push won't work. It will sync my sent and drafts folders just fine, in real time/push (which makes absolutely no sense to me), but it will not sync my inbox, whether via push, manual or timed fetch. But it was working earlier!!! I don't understand! So FRUSTRATING!!!

    Anybody experiencing the same thing ... again? Any thoughts? I'm about ready to throw this damn think out the window!

    Just sent a test email to SO's phone and it worked perfectly. That's after stopping all email processes and making sure the app was completely closed. It all seems to be working as its should.

    Default Re: Verizon LG G2 - Exchange email issues after update

    Here's a question I hadn't thought to ask: did you all get a new version of the email client? Does it look different? I was just reading online about the new look and new features of the new Kitkat version of the email client. But, mine looks just the same as before. And, in Application Manager it says it's the August 2013 version. This could be the problem I'm having.

    Also, I now keep getting a message that says "Unfortunately, email has stopped". Sometimes this happens at the screen where I name the account; or, if I get past that, it happens shortly after the account set-up is finalized.

    Anyone have any thoughts? This is incredibly frustrating.

    Thanks in advance for any shared wisdom.

    So, I've sort of got email working now, but there's definitely something wrong. I deleted everything and started over again, but changed the update schedule from push to manual before completing the set-up. By doing that I got the email to work and to actually sync. Then I tried having it check mail every 15 minutes and that worked; and then every 10 and then every 5. It's getting my mail, but the client keeps crashing and giving me the "unfortunately, email has shut down" message. It usually crashes when I try to read an email. I just don't get it. Oh, and push will not work at all.

    Sorry, I really don't mean to "spam" the thread. I'm just looking for advice, and also hoping I might be able to warn or help others who might be having the same problem.

    No big deal in my opinion about "spamming" the thread. This thread is about an email issue and that's what you're talking about. It may be worth a hard reset on your end( oh my now I sound like vzw support) since it seems to be working well for the others in the thread. We were a very vocal group about it having issues and this time it may be just you.

    Made me almost snort coffee out my nose.

    Thanks for the suggestion; I had a similar thought about the hard reset. It's sort of firing on 5 cylinders at present, so I should be okay until I get some time to back everything up and do a reset. It' just seems odd that I seem to have gotten everything with the OS upgrade exceptthe new mail client that others have talked about. Just one more piece of bad luck that confirms my suspicions that I must've been a real asshat in my last life.

    Hi all, good reading but I'm a little confused. So this new KitKat update that came out yesterday has done to my phone what you have been talking about the last 12 months, my email (Yahoo and GMail) is now in manual mode only, I need to refresh it now and then to get new emails. Say something about a hard reboot, don't know how to do that.
    I have a LG 4F LTE

    Appreciate any suggestions for getting my mail pushed to me automatically.

    Cheers

    Are you using the Gmail app? Yahoo app? Are these accounts setup through the LG email app?

    Hi all. This is my first post in this forum, so be gentle. I use the stock mail app to get my work Exchange mail. Since I got the Kitkat update, I no longer have the option for getting mail in HTML format. The only option listed is Plain Text. I work with the guys who administer our Exchange servers and they verified it's not their policy. They allow HTML. I also checked with some other folks here with iPhones and Windows phones and they are getting HTML, so I'm fairly sure it's not on our end. I read a post in this thread that someone else had the same problem but I didn't see any replies. Anyone else having this problem? If it's a limitation of the stock app, can someone recommend a good alternative app (preferably free...)?

    Be for kitkat I was unable to get html. It didn't play nice with outlook.com. Now it works with both my SO's work email and her outlook both setup as exchange ActiveSync so my experience has been the opposite. i think k-9 mail is free.
