    Just purchaased the S3 on Dec 28th. I set up my gmail account, my cox.net account and my yahoo account. They were all set up properly...nut I am not receiving any emails...when I check my accounts online with my laptop or is MS Outlook I am receiving emails.

    Just this morning there were no emails on my phone....so I wont to cox.net to check my email account on my laptop and I had 7 emails, my gmail had 3.

    Why are the emails not going to my phone?

    Is sync turned on? Go to android settings > accounts and go into each and ensure sync is on.

    Then go into both the Gmail app and email app and check the settings there for each account
