    There seems to be a 5-7 minutes delay; doesn't synch right away with the other email apps. Here are pics of my email setting. I noticed the shortest time frame is 5 minutes, that's just too long of a wait. Thanks!

    Gmail and Exchange have push email but you cannot push Yahoo mail in the default email app. You can install the Yahoo email app if it's important to you.

    Is there an option to activate Gmail push in the stock email app?

    I can only answer for the Note 3 right now, but I can in the stock email app. I have a gmail account added there with push sync set.

    I miss the push send/rec. of the Gmail app but the combined inbox of the stock app is worth the sacrifice for me. I have 6 email accts.

    That's strange. Not sure why that would change. When I get my hands on a Note 4 again, I'll check it out.

    Ok, good. I thought that was really weird for them to remove. If the gmail app had the combined inbox and the choice to get rid of conversation view, I would use it but I hate those two things. I do use it for just my phone-only account that doesn't get any real email but for my actual gmail account, I use the stock app.

    I'm with ya. I've always used the Gmail app and decided to test drive the stock app this round and I'm glad I did. The combined inbox and no conversation view are invaluable! It's always drove me nuts, just wish I would have gotten away from it sooner. BTW just got my 1:00 am email update right at 1:00 am. Thanks again.

    Thanks for helping both of you. Before I tinker with it, is it possible that I forward or add my 6 Yahoo email accounts to my Gmail app, but then add those same 6 accounts to the stock email app so they all be "pushed"? Basically, I would like to have all my Yahoo emails reveived, sent, deleted, etc live or simultaneously. The Yahoo email app, which I have been using does that, but because I just bought the Gear S, I can't reply or compose emails from the Gear S, just read them. As of now unfortunately, Samsung's stock email app can do all those things.

    That's not going to help you. You're still only going to have the 5 minute or greater sync option for yahoo in Gmail or stock, not push.

    Have you tried either forwarding or importing your yahoo to your Gmail account? I haven't looked at what time-frame that happens so not sure if that is a solution.

    Edit: I see you asked about forwarding too- I originally just saw your question about adding. Adding will not work. About forwarding, like I said, I don't personally know if that is done instantly or not. Try it with one account and see.

    So, I was curious and tested this for you. I've only sent two test emails so don't take this as a guarantee it will work as you want, but it looks good so far.

    First, do not use the import function in gmail - that seems to poll at intervals and did not deliver mail immediately in my test.

    Second, set up forwarding in your yahoo account to go to a gmail account.

    Third, add that gmail account to the stock email app and set sync to push.

    Like I said I only sent two emails (from two different accounts) to test this, but both emails I got notifications in the stock gmail account within 1 second of them appearing within my yahoo account.

    So you can test further for yourself to see if it always works or not, but that was my preliminary test for you.

    I must be in the wrong screen on my laptop computer trying to figure out how to forward my Yahoo email account to Gmail. Attached is a pic of Setting in one of my Yahoo email accounts. As you can see, there is no Forward option.

    Thanks again, jpr! I spent an hour forwarding and testing my Yahoo emails to my one Gmail account, then to stock email...inconsistent results, so I have to revert what I had. Thanks for trying though.

    The new Gmail app handles pop and imap now. That will give you instant Gmail but still polling on other accounts all in one app.

    No, it is still the same sync internals as the stock email app.
