Problem with push email notifications?
Hi all. I have a 3GS, and notice an email notification problem. I have a yahoo and gmail account on push, and 4 other email accounts on fetch. I had thought that with any new email that comes in (whether pushed or fetched to the phone), you should get a notification to your home screen dock email icon. Instead, I have to go open the email app, and then the notification pops up that I have several emails. Why?
Isn't it supposed to let me know I have emails waiting for me from the home screen? I don't want to have to open my email application everytime to see if I have any new emails. Is there a setting I can do to fix this? Thanks for any help.

Well Gmail has been going on and off with push for me the past few days. If you don't get one pushed and open the app it checks them all so anything that got messed up or hasn't been sent in your fetch period will get delivered then.
Also, in my mail settings, I pulled up a page where it shows SMTP settings, and it is ON for my Yahoo SMTP server, but OFF for my gmail, aol, live, and AT&T SMTP server accounts. Is this the right setting? Yahoo is my primary server.

Ok, another question- when I go into the SMTP page in my settings, it shows that the primary server I chose is the yahoo SMTP server. There is also a section below it showing Other SMTP Servers (which contain 5 other email servers that constitute my 5 other email accounts either pushing or fetching to the phone). For those settings, they are set at OFF. So, only the primary server is switched on. Is this this the correct setting, or should I turn all of the other SMTP servers to ON?
Thanks in advance.

dont feel bad, i've got mobile me and have the exact same problem. its been happening to me more lately, i'll notice that i dont have any new email, open the mail program, and the phone starts beeping because all my emails are coming in. yahoo works fine, but mobile me isnt. i chatted with support a few weeks ago, and i'm gonna do it again here in a sec. i end up having to go to the email settings, turning push off, then back on. the emails start showing up after that. i wonder if its something to do on a server end somewhere. i cant see this being a phone issue.

Bumping this thread out of sheer frustration. I'd hoped that one of the last few updates would've fixed the fetch and push problems on my 3G, but it's only gotten worse as far as consistency is concerned. Now, I get about one alert of new mail a day if I'm lucky even though I'm receiving new mail all day long.
How is everybody else faring? Anybody happen to find a fix?
(For the record, I have a Yahoo mail account set to push and a Gmail account still set to fetch every few minutes. Neither are working.)
