  • The Virgin Mail app for Android running version 8 is not automatically syncing anymore, I only installed it from scratch a few days ago and was picking up emails properly then, but for some reason yesterday it stopped doing that and leaves a message at the top of the inbox saying "Syncing disabled", so I have to manually refresh the sync! How do I get it to go back to automatic mode?
