How do I change the settings on my Moto G so that I can check email while on cell?

A year or so ago, in an effort to restrict my use of cellular data, I followed some advice about adjusting the settings on my Moto G (running Android 5.1). As a result the phone only checks my email when I’m using wifi. Now I’d like to occasionally check email while on a cell network, but I can’t figure out how to change the settings so that this is possible. Can someone help me? Thanks.

Cell data is required for this so you must be on a plan that includes data. The easiest way I’ve found to manage data is in the Republic app where you can turn cell data on when you want it, off when you don’t.
