How To Fix Google Nexus 7 Stock Email Problems


The
most common email problem users experienced with the Nexus 7 is the failure to
sync. Many believed there is a bug in the stock email that is preventing the
app to sync normally. But according to a developer who has developed one of the
custom ROMs available for the Nexus 7 right now, there’s no problem with the
app. He said, however, that sometimes data (such settings and preferences) may
take a little longer to be saved in the memory or get corrupted the first
setup.

The
solution he recommended when the stock email fails to sync is to clear data and
re-setup the account. Owners who have updated their device to Android 4.2 are
strongly advised to do it if the syncing fails during the first setup. To clear
email data, do the following:
  1. Open app drawer.
  2. Tap Settings
    icon.
  3. Tap on Device
    option.
  4. Tap on Apps.
  5. Scroll down a
    bit to find email app and tap on it.
  6. Tap on Clear
    Data button.
  7. Go back to Home
    screen.
  8. Launch Email app
    once again and setup your account.
Based
on reports, the stock email app is best used for corporate emails or emails
with different domains. However, if you have a Gmail, it is advisable your use
the official Gmail App for Android.
Another
email problem reported by a Nexus 7 user is that even if everything is entered
correctly the message “Couldn’t finish: Couldn’t open connection to server.”
This problem usually happens to users who want to setup their Exchange email
account on their tablet. To resolve this problem, do the following:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Choose Data
    Usage.
  3. Look at the top
    right corner of the screen beneath the time, you will find 3 dots there.
    Tap on that and a sub-menu pops up.
  4. Tick Auto-sync
    data.
Your
emails should be available soon and that error message would be gone.
