Syncing Email

I have my phone set up to access my aol account.   It only syncs when I'm connected to wifi.  I want to be able to see new emails when I'm not connected to wifi.  I think I have the sync setting correct.  Can you help, please?

I want to ensure your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 device is syncing your AOL email even when not connected to WiFi. I would love to help.

Please check the setting for “Restrict background data” in the “Data usage” section of the Settings menu: If this is checked, then your applications may not sync in the background when you’re not connected to WiFi. Please keep me posted with your findings.
