Sometimes the email app goes for half a day without doing any syncing, even though my account is set to sync every 30 minutes.

Looks good. Some more testing in real world conditions needed.

There is one more related issue: emails are not synced because Jolla is not connecting to known WiFi when available. The expected action would be, that at the point of time, when email gets synced and no network connection available, then WLAN scan has to be performed to connect to registered WIFI.

@ortylp - Please open a new thread for the network issues with the relevant data, email MW can't force the connections, it needs to respects the network logic.

@VDVsx Thanks for the fix! It works for me so far!

I still have the problem and I'm using I had the sync interval set to 30 minutes and it worked fine (at least I think so), but when I changed the interval to 15 minutes, Jolla still updates every 30 minutes.

@jjaoneI think that is the question you were referring to: https://together.jolla.com/question/500/bug-e-mail-syncronisation-does-not-work-as-configured/ Anyway it is VERY inconvenient, as e-mail nowdays is getting as essential cell phone functionality as SMS. For me it is a core for smartphone

for me it doesn't work as expected. i have more then 10 dirs in imap folder and the sync does only sync at the intervall the dir there am in.
so if i am in inbox, inbox is synced at the intervall, but why not all folder are synced?
