Just to recap for all those newcomers who acces this app, here is the solution to the problem!

Settings >connections tab , then 'Data Usage' , then click on hard menu button (bottom left) of phone-check (tick) Auto Sync data
hope it helps.

:)

Hey A w

The solution was pretty simple. I fought for a long time on this email thing. You gave the apt solution.

Hello, this is my first time here, reading the posts reminded me what I did wrong. "The thing" that everyone is referring to is the sync icon, and you will find it in the NFC ,or the notification panel, and it is under the HEADING (device) at the top of your screen when you pull the home screen down. You can also edit the NFC, so that you can put the apps. you use most at your fingertips. It might not actually show up when you first pull the screen down. You may have to click on device, notification panel, and then drag and drop your sync icon. Hope this helps a little bit more. I tend to need step by step instructions...lol.

AW you are an absolute genius!! How simple and obvious but I never looked at it and was ready to take every app off the phone and start over!! That would be a great place for a "pop up" box to explain that when you can sync your email in the first place!! Thank you

Well, Johann battery doctor has messed up the email sync didn't get that :? I was using Battery Doctor previously and never had such issues, the thing I like most about the battery doctor is, the Intelligent power saving mode i.e. It will automatically enable and disable the data connection as per the requirement. I think you have accidentally switch that mode on and what is might be doing is keep switching the data connection off.
