Gmail not syncing properly after system update

    Hey guys,

    A few weeks ago my Samsung Note 4 received an OTA update - nothing major, I believe it just added some security patches and removed some bloatware. But since then, my gmail app has not been syncing properly.

    The sync is definitely still ON, because it does sync sometimes but it's very sporadic. But it's not syncing as soon as emails come in, and often it will take a couple hours for new emails to show up (which I can see if I'm home near my computer). Some mornings I'll wake up and my emails from overnight will be there, and some mornings, nothing will have synced from overnight.

    And as far as I can tell, there's nothing specific that finally prompts it to sync (in other words, turning my phone on, or simply opening gmail doesn't make it sync. It just seems to be totally random).

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks!!
