    I bought a LG G3 a few weeks ago and the same day I upgraded to Lollipop via factory reset before updating, then adding my accounts. I haven't had push email on any account since day one and I've read several threads in where it's claimed there's push email on Lollipop, or at least the gmail app. The lack of complaints about this tells me either it works properly for almost everyone, or it doesn't and few people care. I'd like proper push email, like I have on my Z10, but I can't seem to figure out where the problem lies. When I send myself test email the Z10 sounds off as my finger lifts off my mouse button, and then my desktop as soon as my Z10 goes quiet. Sometime in the next hour my G3 receives the same mail. It's the same result whether on WiFi or carrier connection.

    What type of email account is this for?

    As Ry said, what email service is this? Gmail, Yahoo, Exchange or ?

    You're using the Gmail app, correct?

    Are you certain that you have support for push email notifications (aka IMAP IDLE) enabled in the settings?

    4 Gmail and 2 Outlook accounts, all with the Gmail app. Occurs to me I should mention the Inbox app as well as the Outlook/Outlook.com apps suffer the same problem, and so did the Type Mail app for the brief time I was trying it out. I no longer have the outlooks or Type Mail, just Gmail and Inbox, figuring from what I read that since Gmail had push it would do fine and I wouldn't need more apps than necessary. I tried to find relevant IMAP/POP settings but it appears I haven't found the right ones yet.

    The Gmail app *should* work. But since it's not for whatever reason, and since I'm giving you credit for already checking the push option in Gmail, I'm gonna suggest that you try another email client.

    My favorite by far is AquaMail. I've used it for a long time and never had a problem with push notifications. You might consider Maildroid or K-9 also.

    Do the emails show up when you open gmail?

    Thanks - will check those out. :yes:
    As a new Whovian it would definitely be awesome if K9 mail does the trick.

    Everything syncs as soon as I open gmail; but it's not pushing on or off WiFi. However, I noticed 5 times today as soon as I would switch from one connection to the other it does push, both ways.

    Not having 10 posts again is really annoying, just lost everything I typed because I forgot to remove that link. Long story short: downloaded Aquamail, K-9, Cloudmagic, created a new address just to spam myself with an address not on device. All day on Verizon, all evening on WiFi, seems to be "push when it feels like it" no matter the connection. At best I'd get all of gmail addresses pushed, OR all outlook, but never everything. Sometimes I wouldn't even get all, I'd have to refresh per inbox. And oddly, the only app getting email pushed is Gmail, but that's the right direction so that's a good thing (I think). I'm hardware savvy, but software issues trip me up, I can't figure out what's the problem.

    So just to be sure I have this right...

    It makes no difference whether you're on WiFi or VZ mo old data, you don't get mail notifications pushed consistently, but you go k get them eventually and can download mail using either connection. I get that. But is it true that you might be on either connection when notifications come?

    Its makes no difference what software you use?

    The IPV6 test fails on either connection?

    Have you contacted VZ?

    You have it correct, behaves exactly the same on either connection. And no, hadn't considered contacting Verizon because of that. I've only contacted them for select hardware issues and some signal problems in the past.
