    Though I have never used a Windows Phone, here is what I could find when I searched for the solution-
    1. Tap on People tile either on homescreen or app drawer.
    2. Tap the 3 dots to bring up Menu.
    3. Tap on Settings.
    4. Tap on and then tap on Google
    5. Enter your Google credentials and tap Sign In.
    6. Tap Back and come back to your accounts. Tap Gmail to adjust settings.
    7. You can adjust the sync interval and other settings for your gmail account here.

    The above steps are for Windows phone 7.5. There could be slight changes in the latest version.

    Live....and Let Live!
