Are you choosing a path to install all apps to SD card? This will occur on phones when users do this because the SDcard they have/the app is not setup to work that way. Check your WiFi settings and then your application manager settings. If you have the apps set to just open when on mobile data this can happen. For WiFi, settings like Keep WiFi ON during sleep can cause an interference. If the problem persists then hard reset the Nokia Lumia 535.

Completely uninstall both apps/email accounts. Then log in on the PC to the accounts and reset all of your settings. Start from fresh to see if the syncing gets corrected. If not then you will just have to use two separate apps for the email accounts. I had the same issue where I would add both accounts to the main email yet one or the other would randomly stop working. Finally, I just downloaded their apps and have had no issues. Sometimes there can be server errors when they conflict with the other email.
