    Email app not sending notifications

    Hey. Besides using the stock Gmail app, I also use the stock Email app for my hotmail account. For the last I don't know how long, I haven't been getting notifications about new emails...and I've missed out on some activities and purchases because of it. There no longer seems to be an option in the settings for the frequency of updates, and usually when I manually hit the refresh button it doesn't show new emails. Then two or three says later I show 50 new emails. This is asinine. Please help!

    Are you sure your email is synced and notifications are selected? I

    I never had any luck getting the Motorola email app to work correctly, I would get long delays till email would be delivered to my phone and after trying multiple ways to fix the problem that had no success I decided to move on from using the stock email app

    I added my Hotmail/Live and Verizon.net email accounts to my Gmail account so all my mail can be accessed in one place, connecting to my one main Gmail account using the Gmail App I have never had any problems with getting email pushed to my phone as soon as it hits my inbox

    if you want to use two different apps for email there are other alternatives to the Motorola Email app like K-9 Mail or Microsoft's Hotmail app for Android

    How can I add my hotmail account to my Gmail account?

    I've never had a problem at all with the stock email app until after my factory reset.

    I hate to be a pain but I tried to follow the directions in that link but I cannot find the options for adding a POP3 account. There is nothing in my app resembling that, and on the website itself I found the settings and account areas but not the additional steps.

    if you still can't get it to work or figure it out you may find an easier explaination of the process by trying to google something along the lines of "adding Hotmail account to Gmail" or try the same search on YouTube to find videos demonstrating how to add accounts to Gmail

    Just forward your hotmail email to gmail.

    I too had issues with changing the freq, and it's because you can't easily do it. You have to delete the hotmail account and re-add it. Once you do this-during setup you can set the frequency (and only by doing this), hope this helps mate.
