Background Sync needs to be enabled under Settings > Data Usage

I had the same issue when I was using Galaxy S3 with Stock Android.

i was not getting any email notifications at all unless i physically went in my email and refreshed . but i fixed it and heres how: first i went into settings and then app. manager, i totally removed my account (force stop,clear data and clear cache).then i went back to the e-mail app. i have hotmail but instead of hitting the windows live icon i re-entered my account under "others" on the list,( I DID NOT USE THE WINDOWS LIVE ICON !) and then i proceeded as usual with the the e-mail info (user name and password) then i went into the e-mail settings and put in my notification tone under both ,the general preferences and the "added accounts" (someone@ hotmail.com) and that did the trick ,ive been getting my notifications ever since, hope this helps! p.s. REMEMBER , ADD YOUR ACCOUNT UNDER "OTHERS"
