i noticed a strange behaviour with my phone about the googlemail account (don't know if it is the same with an other type of account). When i connect the phone on internet with the wifi. I get from time to time my synchronized mail from google mail account. until now (in my description), that is and was always normal. In the past, I configured the phone to do this.

The point that now, make me to report on tjc the strange behaviour is, that the google account which is bound to my mail-account is and was for a long time "not connected" with the phone.
I mean with it, that sfos display it as "not connected".

What's happened ? could it be that the sfos gui in "settings" informed that the google account is disconnected. But indeed in background the account is still connected?

How could it happened that my mails come up anyway, on the event view, and are readable with the mail app. Even If the phone has the status "not connected" on the settings?

How may i check without the sfos gui the status of google account connection? if it is connected or not (maybe with shellex or fingerterm).

Could someone explain it? or there is a ghost in the shell? It would interest me that someone help me to understand this behaviour.

thx in advance for interesting and helping.

Your Gmail account is probably set to 'Active' in Settings=>Accounts (Réglages=>Comptes)

Does this occur only when Aliendalvik is running?

If so, try this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rechild.advancedtaskkiller&hl=fr

and use it to kill Google Services.

Shortly happened to me something which support this shinning connection issue.
Has i reported here .
Happened last sunday that my device had a behaviour similar that a initialisation. Where all my app-folders disappears. Some background apps where closed, and a contact entry was cleared, after i switched the wifi to On, and it went in standby.
All happened fast. It was a matter of seconds. Between i switched the display from off, to on.
