    I've just upgraded from an S5 to an S9+

    On the S5 I had all email accounts set for manually reading. I don't like the term sync as I'm not using IMAP nor syncing multiple devices. I'm just manually checking if I have any new mail when it suits me.

    On the S5 Inbox screen it has 4 icons at the very bottom and one of them is a Refresh button (a circle with an arrow tip) and that is there for manually checking for new mail.

    On the S9 I cannot find any similar feature. The only way I can get any new mail is to enable Auto-sync that I detest.

    So I would appreciate some help from any genius on this forum, thank you

    Welcome to Android Central! Try swiping down on the screen, which is the standard gesture for Refresh.

    Thanks for the welcome BD

    Perhaps moving from an S5 to an S9 is too big a familiarity jump?

    My grandkids would have figured it a flash.

    Thanks mate

    So I assume that worked, right?

    The S5 didn't get any higher than Android 6, while the S9 should be on Android 10 -- 4 major Android versions ahead. There have been a LOT of changes over that time frame.

    Yes, worked perfectly thank you

    I checked and it is Android 10.

    One other slightly annoying email thing... on the S5 there was a 'mark all' box to tick for bulk deletion. On the S9 there's no such box and each email individually seems to need a 2 second touch to get a tick. Annoying when I have a dozen to delete

    If you long-press an email, do you then get a multi-select interface?

    With long-press of any email I get a small window at the top containing an undo arrow with a count of emails ticked, a trash bin, an envelope icon that opens/closes on touch but does nothing else and 3 vertical dots that open up to offer only 'Add star'
