    Default My mail is not being pushed!

    I've updated to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2. Now my Yahoo! Mail is not being pushed to either device. Never had a problem before. It is the only e-mail account I use. Have tried deleting account and setting it up again on both devices. Didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Yahoo email's been up and down all day, outage issues reported here if you don't believe me:

    I can get my mail when I manually open the app, it just won't push the mail and notify me. Do you still think that has something to do with it? Thanks.

    My yahoo mail had no trouble pushing after my update, I did go and manually enter my login info to make sure it was setup proper.

    yesterday i sent myself an email from my work computer, and it didn't push, but i did another one today just to test it, and it pushed immediately. I think it had something to do with Yahoo's servers yesterday.

    I've been trying everything for the last 3 hours. Nothing works. Quite upsetting I must say.

    I'm having the same problem with my gmail. I have notifications turned on, under settings, but my gmail isn't pushing. If I go into the mail app, it starts checking for email and I finally get the mail. However, I'm not getting any push or notifications of email.

    I might add that the yahoo account is my only account I have. Have not set up an iCloud/me.com email address yet. Hard resets, delete and set up yahoo again, nothing.

    Ok. So I created a me.com address...and now my yahoo! mail works! Push is back! Go figure! So I assume you have to use iCloud mail for push to work for any account.

    I have been having problems with Yahoo mail push as well. I did notice (and tested) that if you have the Mail App running, Yahoo mail is pushed. If it is not running it is not getting pushed!
