    Hi guys, this has been an issue for a long time apparently but I was wondering if anyone knew a work around to get my Gmail account to automatically push for new emails in the stock Mail app? I really like the stock app compared to the Gmail one. I've tried setting the fetch intervals to 15 minutes but the mail app won't fetch mail sometimes up to hours if not days at a time. Thanks.

    Sharing the same problem: I opened the mail app, then saw it hadn't updated in three days (!). Guess what, 100+ unread emails coming in. :(

    Any way of updating this?

    Question 2 (and sorry for hijacking this topic) : if I decide to move my prime email account to iCloud, how wise would that be, considering I am now a Gmail user?

    It’s broken in iOS 10 but works fine in iOS 11
