    We're looking for the "SYNC SCHEDULE" section
    .
    The sync schedule decides when the HTC One M8 will sync with the Microsoft Outlook account. That means when it will check for new emails and download them. We can set a schedule for how often they sync. What we can do, is decide when is "Peak time" and when is "Off-peak time". We can also decide what happens during those periods.

    Tap on the first option, "Peak time sync" to change that setting
    .
    This is what's going to happen during peak time. Right now, "Smart Sync" is selected. This means that it lets the phone decide how often to sync based on the phones behavior.

    To change that, we can tap on the selected setting
