    Welcome to Android Central! When you open the Gmail app, are the new emails there automatically, or do you have to manually refresh it? If the latter, then make sure your Auto-Sync is turned on (in the swipedown Quick Settings toggle menu).

    Go to Settings>Accounts-Google, and make sure Gmail's sync is turned on.

    b.diddy -- everything is synced there as well with the background data active. This is just crazy isn't it? Have you got any other possible solutions? I appreciate your help with this

    Ok, go to the Power or Battery menu, and look for a Battery Optimization setting. Make sure Gmail is not optimized.

    Also, if any general power-saving modes are turned on, turn them off.
