    Does anyone know how to turn on auto sync instead of the schedule sync for emails?
    The shortest time is 15 mins which is too long for me. Need instant notifications for emails. Helppppp

    GMail has push, not sure what you're looking at.

    It has auto sync, in fact, they usually pop in on my phone before they do on my PC. In the email settings you need to select the account you have synced and then under "Sync Schedule" you have the options to select "Auto (when received)", Manual, or at different time intervals.

    Depends on the service you're using. I've got four accounts in the standard Samsung email app, work MS Exchange, Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo. The only one that doesn't auto sync is Yahoo, and that's because Yahoo doesn't support it except through their own app. All the rest come in almost instantly.

    In the sync schedule it does not have Auto sync options.
    Only Manual, 15, 30, every hour, 2 hours, 4 hours or once a day.
    Are you saying choosing Manual will auto sync?

    I was experiencing this too and it drove me crazy!

    I was using the Gmail app for email and noticed that I was getting email notifications on my computer but not my Gmail app on my T-Mobile Note 5. It would be delayed 15 minutes or longer. I tested this by sending myself emails from a Yahoo Mail account.

    Then I googled the issue for possible solutions and tried removing the email account and adding it back. Went into the Gmail app settings, Manage Labels under data usage and made sure the box for Notify for every message was checked. Even tried factory reset. None of this helped. My email notifications were still delayed.

    Then I tried the Samsung email app out of desperation and it worked! Instant or near email notifications. So I've been using the Samsung email app but I would still like to use the Gmail app if anyone has any suggestions on what to do.

    I agree the samsung email app will do auto sync just fine. I have mine set to automatically sync during work hours (it calls it peak) I've set then it does every 2 hours during non peak hours.

    Tried type mail and other email apps, kept coming back.

    This is driving me crazy. With my Note 4 and Yahoo Mail, the delay is only 5 minutes; with my Note 5 is 15 minutes. Is there finally a way to shorten the waiting time? Anyone here using the stock email with Yahoo Mail, and see if there is an option for Auto or 5 minutes?

    Thanks, I will explore Type Mail in the near future. As for now, the stock email is a must since my Gear S smartwatch is only compatible with the stock email in terms of receiving and replying. I tried other 3rd party email apps, but they are limited. It's just odd the Note 4 sync waiting period for Yahoo Mail is 5 minutes, but the Note 5 is 15 minutes! Seems inconsistent. Hotmail and Gmail are fine.

    I've used AquaMail for years, and on three different phones, with absolutely no problems. I have a gmail acct. and a hotmail acct. It's set to receive at 5 minutes, but comes in much quicker. The email hits my laptop, and within 10-15 seconds it's also on my phone.
