Supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo! and other popular accounts.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I've done everything suggested but still receiving not synced yet message.
    Any other ideas?
    Could it have anything to do with PlusNet?

    It could be the trouble but don't Quote me on that,
    How long do you have to wait until it sync?
    Have you also tried a refresh to see if that cures your problem

    Mine is set up as Brink as shown in 5

    Also on mine I have used the link app that shows and brought all my inboxes into one
    You can also rename the link
    I am using my user name
    Once done just press Save,

    That makes your Mail also sync quicker

    Thanks, I'll try the link and let you know.
    Don't have to wait as it just doesn't sync.
    Bye the way, how should the privacy settings be in a perfect world?

    I have read that if you don't allow Mail to access the Calendar you won't get Mail to sync properly , so check

    Under settings -> Privacy -> Calendar, You need to let the Mail app have access to the calendar

    Thanks Kbird.
    Have tried that previously to no avail.
    I've given up on the app and now use Thunderbird instead.:)

    It seems to have helped but the jury is still out though, the "gmail account settings" box is taking a long time. But I never did get to this step before. Is this normal?

    Thank you for helping :)
