    K-9 Mail used to automatically get new mails the moment they arrived on my mail server - so for instance, if I sent myself a test email, it appeared in my K9 Mail inbox a second or so after I sent it, without any need to manually refresh my inbox. Now, new mails don't appear in my inbox at all until I manually refresh my inbox - although they does appear in the built-in email client automatically.

    I'm currently therefore having to use the built-in email client simply to notify me when new emails arrive, which I then read in K-9 Mail, because I much prefer K-9 Mail's interface. But this is far from ideal.

    Is there some setting that I need to change to get K-9 Mail to automatically get new emails as it used to? I've looked at all my settings and can't see any that are obviously the culprit.

    I'm using a brand new Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) - but I had the same problem with my last phone, which was a Galaxy S2. I think the problem started a couple of months ago. I have K-9 Mail version 5.010.

    I've just tried changing "Push Folders" from "All" to "First Class", and that seems to have fixed the problem! That's very counter-intuitive to say the least. Do you have any idea why that would have fixed it? I don't really understand what the setting means.

    Anyway, it's a relief that I've found the fix to the problem.

    Dave - happy you fixed the issue - have you ever used Blue Mail? I am considering that, and K9 - and I was wondering if you could provide any comparison points?

    Thanks in advance for any help!
