Default email notification issue (delayed or stuck notifications?)

My girlfriend has the same phone and when she gets emails she gets a notification straight away but I have to go into the app to get them even though my notification settings are turned on.

I don't get my emails very quickly either. They come thru sometimes but mostly only when I open the application too. I cant figure it out. Its annoying.

to the op,
if your girls phone works, why not copy her settings over to your device?

if you are using the stock email app,

what accounts are you using that have this issue?

how long have you had this phone? and has this issue been happening since day one?

do you have background sync ticked?

Thought I would post too as well as the opp. I just did a search and read one of you earlier post about installing the yahoo app from the play store. Email is now instant. Thanks marctronixx! Opp give this a try.

Ok since posting this I've kind of pieced things together and realised that most of my apps require me to actually go into them and update and or sync them. My weather app constantly says 'no weather data available' and my shazam never has data available on the widget until I refresh it.
I am just using the stock email app but I use the gmail one too sometimes which has the same problem.
I use gmail as my account.
Ive had my HTC one for a few months
I actually noticed this happening a lot on my iPhone before this too but I just put up with it.
Might sound like a silly question but where is the background sync button?
Also, my girl has a slightly different setting arrangement which makes me think maybe she has a different OS to me.
Confused..

Go to SETTINGS* > ACCOUNTS & SYNC & ensure that "AUTO SYNC" is in the ON position.

*PHONE SETTINGS,which is accessible by pulling down on the NOTIFICATION BAR & tapping the GEAR ICON located in the upper right corner.

In Accounts and Sync, the Mail settings appear to affect Google mail - which I found odd...

I had all Google services set to sync and the separate Mail (which I assumed was for HTC's mail app) with Sync switched off. Reapplying this fixed a GMail sync issue (I.e. no notifications).

Default Email Icon shows new email when there aren't any.

Hello,

For the last tree days email icon on the apps toolbar at the bottom of the screen shows two new emails but there aren't any emails at all? I rebooted several times but it didn't fix this issue.

Any ideas?

rooted?

are you using stock email app? gmail app? other 3rd party?

install or uninstall any apps prior?

how many email addresses do you have?

any sync errors in the sync tab in settings?

same behavior over wifi as well as cellular?

remove the email addresse(s) and re-add?

Not rooted.

The issue is with stock email app icon.

No

Only one email account with the stock app. Gmail has its own app.

Gmail had sync error, but it shouldn't affect stock app (I guess).

Yes.

Will try this later.

you are correct. gmail and stock apps are different, however I did not know which mail app you were talking about.

removing the email address and re-adding may solve the issue.

Well, f***ing Gmail had 2 unread messages. And I think stock email icon removed that blue circle with number 2 after I checked those two Gmail messages before I removed and re-added email account to the stock email app.

Well, it happened again. I have one email notification - blue circle with 1 on email icon and envelope in the status bar at the top. And there are no emails in the stock app and no new emails in Gmail. WTH is going on?

Update.

When I pulled down status bar it showed that I had one message in my Gmail. When I checked the message in Gmail it cleared notification for the stock email app. Something is wrong!
