    since i made the android 9 update i don't get any new email notification from my Gmail app. Only if I open Gmail and synch manually all the new emails pop up.
    Notification settings on Gmail are all on
    If have even deactivated all battery saving setting, but that doesn't help either
    And why isn't Gmail in the battery optimization list?
    I appreciate any help

    Make sure you have "Sync Gmail" option turned ON in Gmail > options > settings > select your gmail account > scroll down to Data usage > turned on "Sync Gmail"

    Hi, I am guessing android is killing the app in the background, consider using the app "inbox" by Google same as Gmail,, but also lock the Gmail so it does not close in the background (via recent apps) and also very very important turn off battery optimization for Gmail,, these two things are very important for any app you want to hace running in the background ... Also restart the phone after changing the settings

    Hi, thanks for your reply

    -I installed the inbox app but I couldn't get in, because I'm using a gmx email address for my Google account. Inbox accepts only Gmail address

    -like i said, Gmail is missing in the battery optimization list. Pre-installed apps such as Gmail, are always running in battery optimization mode

    Guess I'll give up, hoping that the next update will fix this problem. Thanks buddy

    Also consider using K9 mail app or Typeapp email app, both work very well and can be used with all types of email accounts

    I solved the problem disabling the application, delete all data and enable it again. Accounts are not lost.
