    Are you using GMail app or Email app?

    If using GMAil app, do you have the setting for syncing GMAil checked under accounts?

    Did you go to Settings>Accounts> Google>Name of your account and there is no check box for 'Sync Gmail'?

    Yes i did that but only appears to do manual. Like i press the phone sync, download the email and that's it. Is basically the same when i go to the app and do refresh/sync.

    Can you take a pic and post or send me to my email (duarteoliveira95@gmail.com)

    Set up label sync then. I am not willing to use my email address to send anyone anything.

    So in the pic where it says your account is not being auto synced and the button to Turn gmail sync on, that doesn't work?

    You may want to remove the pics and your email address. You never know what some evil person may spam.

    Atomicmachine .. try this. Go to Phandroid and download the new Gmail that came out today and install it. See if that works better for you.

    I had the same issue, go to Settings -> Data usage -> menu key - > Auto Sync Data needs to be ticked. This fixed it for me.

    Let me know if this helps.

    You should lock this topic because apparently is something that no one from your team knew it that can happen.
