    I have tried to look into the setting of the " Email" app ( that is found in all samsung mobiles ) to make it push email, but could not find any setting.
    It only pulls email in shedules times or manually .
    Is that true or I am missing something here? Thanks in advance

    I want to use this app instead of gmail, becuse I need to use it with my business email as imap .

    It depends on the mail server not on the app...
    If the server doesn't support push you'll have to live without it...

    What mails do you want to get pushed? Gmail?

    Thanks, but I tried this server on Maildroid, zeus and the mail are pushed instantaneously, but neve for the native email.
    I tried even to use this app for my personal gmail account, and it is not pushing.

    I am using a hosting company called Hostica for my business email .

    have you tried this app pesoanlly ? please try it with your gmail for example, and let me know.

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm currently working with the stock email client on my S3.
    I'm using outlook.com and gmail with Exchange Active Sync and email get pushed in an instant.

    How do you connect to your server? POP3 or IMAP?

    I tried gamil and failed to get push emails.
    attched is the setting page for that native email app.
    if I leave the schedulse as is, thisnis not pushing, this is pulling at certain times.
    if I make it manual, then it does not push or even pull.

    How did you configure this page in your case?

    Creating a new account, I choose manual setup after entering the login-name and password. On the next page I use "Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync".
    It usually finds the correct server settings for it, IF the server supports EAS.

    I don't have that page, instead I've got this one

    I've seen some reports though claiming Google wants to shut down the possibility to log in via Exchange for new devices. I'm not sure about that, for my part it works flawlessly over EAS.

    It has to be said that not all email-providers give access to a pushmail-feature though. Yahoo for example has push only enabled when using its own client. When using the stock, I can only set an interval for mails to be checked.

    I've moved this to the main gs4 forum:)

    Well, It's not actually a S4 related issue...

    Well it's an issue with the Samsung email client which is slightly different depending which phone and firmware you have. Since the thread was originally in the gs4 all things root the main gs4 forum seems the best place for it. :)

    I never had such a pge with the word " Push" . I remind you that my business email is not Micosoft exchange, it just a notmal imap/smtp email hosted on an campnay called hostica.

    Yeah, I've read the name of your provider in your last post already ;)

    Haven't worked with Maildroid and Zeus, so I don't know how they configure it. Perhaps via IMAP-Idle...
    I've used that variant long time ago on my Nokia E71 to receive Push-mail when it actually wasn't available the easy way...

    One thing you could try is that you let your workmail getting relayed to your gmail-account. Then add another account to your client with your workmail credentials and set its sync to manual.
    By this you could send your email with your work-account and simultaneously receive them via push with gmail.

    Dirty, but it works...

    Thank you, I know this solution and as you can see in post 3, I have tried it and it is not working also. the native client is not pushing at all anything, only polling.

    In all other apps I tried, there is always a chance to choose between scheduled sync or pushing, except this one, I did not find any pushing choice.

    Is it only an issue with your work account or also with Gmail?

    This issue is with my work email and my gmail personal account.

    Strange enough, I tested it with hot mail account and iy gave me the option to push !!!!!

    I do not know whay hotmail only ???

    Because of EAS... Outlook/Hotmail still offers push and EAS to be used outside of their own apps.
    I prefer this above all other solutions so far, because this works on almost all devices that support Exchange.
