Android Activesync Push Settings Not Re-sending Failed Mail Send, Upon Network Reconnect.

User has Android Samsung Galaxy S5 with Office 365 Exchange account and Push settings setup.
Problem: User's phone often doesn't have network coverage (WIFI/LTE). Attempts to send mail=fail. Once Re-connected to a network, the email doesn't try to send again.

Am I missing something here, would the activesync not see that an email failed to send, and then try to send said email once it is connected to the network again?

Try going through all of the settings in the Android app.  It might be an option that might be turned off because constantly checking network availability is a definite battery drainer.

You should also consider using another application for your Exchange needs.  The default Android app doesn't have a lot of settings for the user that other paid apps have, like Nine.  I used to use Enhanced Email a lot, but  when I got my S5, it didn't have a menu button to use (since samsung got rid of their default menu button).

I believe we will be going with an Email app for this case. I completely understand about having Push on constantly draining the battery. I appreciate your feedback on this.
