Thank you for the question. Can you please confirm that the email push settings are configured? To do this, go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then touch Fetch New Data. Make sure Push is turned on, and that the Fetch setting is set to Every 15 Minutes. At the bottom of the Fetch New Data page, go to Advanced and make sure that your email is set to Fetch.

Expert:  Techie_Ben replied 2 years ago.
I see, so it seems like there is a problem then. Please perform the following:

1) Click on Preferences at the top of the Mail screen
2) Click on Accounts
3) Click on iCloud
4) Click on the - sign at the bottom of the accounts screen to delete the account. Note, the account will only be deleted from the Mail app and not actually deleted for good.
5) Click the + sign to re-add the account
6) Enter your email address and password XXXXX re-add the account
7) Attempt to check the mail again and let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
