Manage email folder synchronization

Your email folders are synchronized automatically each time you open the app. After you open the app, the inbox is synchronized periodically in the background. You can also choose to automatically synchronize your email folders. Otherwise, folders are synchronized only when you open them.
The number of folders that you set for automatic synchronization will affect battery life and data usage on your device. You can turn off automatic synchronization for some folders to improve battery life or lower data usage.
