- I can’t get email notification sounds on my POP3 account, or any email account.
I have a new Moto e4 with Android 7.1 and am currently using the remaining minutes of pay-as-you-go T-mobile account, before switching to Republic wireless. I love the phone and have downloaded Bluemail to link two email accounts, Yahoo, and a local POP3 account. I think all the settings are correct in “Settings”, but I get an email notification sound for the Yahoo account, but not the POP3.
“Do not disturb” is turned off
“Block All” is off
“Show silently” is off
The volume on the phone is at 100%
The only difference between the two accounts is that Yahoo is in “Push” mode, and the POP3 account is in “Fetch” mode, with the fetch interval of 3 minutes. In the Bluemail > More > Settings > Notifications > “Fetch or Manual” part of Bluemail there is a grayed out note that says “Push-not available for POP3 accounts”. My POP3 account is my main mailbox so I sure would like to get it ringing in.
- Update: It seems that people are having problems with many types of phones, with many different providers, and frequently after the update to Android Nougat!!!
The people over here:
seem to have the same problem with their S8s.
and the people over here:
have discovered that the problem seems to have mysteriously appeared with the update to Android 7.
My phone is less than two weeks old and came with Android 7.1, and I am suspecting that this is the issue.
I did decide to uninstall Bluemail, and went with K-9, which I like, but it has the same problem. I’ve been away from android for a while (daughter gave me her old iphone), and haven’t ever switched POP3 for IMAP, so will wait on that until I find out if the problem is with Android 7.
- At the advice of someone on another thread, I did a factory reset, and used only a gmail account, and then added my pop3 account. NO CHANGE! Seems like this is an ANDROID problem that needs to be addressed, and probably not a Republic problem.
Anyone else have this problem, or answers, or help? Thanks in advance.
