    Do you use Outlook.com on your iPhone 6/6 Plus?
    If so, are you receiving emails and notifications for it, in a timely manner, i.e. without opening the app?

    I have the latest official OS, not jailbroken. When I setup my Outlook.com account on my iPhone 6 Plus, I used the Outlook.com option. Even so, when I receive new emails in my account, despite having notifications on, and PUSH set, I don't receive new emails, unless I open the mail app.

    Do you happen to experience the same issue?
    Maybe I should setup the account as Exchange instead?

    Thanks in advance
    Ivan

    Initially I'd removed the account and re-added it. With the issue still pending, I removed it and added it as Exchange.

    Thus far, all seems well. It is almost euphoric to resolve your own issue...

    Have the same problem. Every time I get an email it doesn't notify me unless I open the app. Pretty useless

    It's fetching. You may have it set in Settings to fetch manually. Go to Settings >Mail,Contacts and Calendars >Fetch New Data > Scroll down to set fetch to your choice. I have my Gmail set for once per hour. But it can be less.

    I get instantaneous delivery of my Outlook.com email along with the standard notification tone I have set. I have my email for Outlook set to "Push."

    Should I setup an Outlook account and have my Gmail sent there? I have to also manually check for emails.

    I get notifications and badges on the stock mail app for Gmail. They're just not immediate. I have mine set for once per hour. I could set it for every 15 minutes, but hourly works for me. I have mine set where the only badges I get are those I have in VIP. That's family, friends and a few important businesses. All that works great for me. Most of my chatting takes place in Messages or Facebook Messenger.

    My issue was that I do email often throughout the day to developers helping them out etc, and I just check my email in general, so I didn't like having to manually check. I'm now using the Gmail app as I should have. I already had it installed but it wasn't doing its job as I was using the stock mail app.

    I see you came to your senses. I told you about this app and you wouldn't use it. Listen to your elders, we've been around longer than you and know much more than your young mind. :p

    The last part may not be true, and I only used the app as I saw I've already had it installed on my iPhone, I just didn't realize why it never alerted me of email, and that's because I was using the stock mail app for Gmail.

    Do you know about marketing, accounting, economics and much more that I've learned?

    You do not have to manually check email to get email alerts for Gmail with the stock mail app. You just have to change the setting from manual to fetch and select an interval. No, it does not push, but it will fetch it every fifteen minutes and it will alert you.

    I like to respond to mail fast, when they send it. :)

    I knew you would say something about push. I'm not sure if you realize it, but you do this every time I correct misinformation that you post. You said it doesn't alert and you have to check it manually. I am just saying you don't have to keep it on the default manual setting and that you WILL get alerts if you switch it to fetch.

    My bad that I didn't say that it does send the mail to my phone, it just doesn't push, which is upsetting especially when I am waiting for email and I check often to see if I get it. It would be nice if you could set it to lower than 15 minutes.

    Nonetheless, I am using Gmail app now. I use Gmail as it does better junk mail filtering than Yahoo did.

    You should probably take more time composing your posts then. I noticed a pattern here a long time ago and I usually don't reply to you because I feel like I am wasting my time since you always do exactly what you did here. I don't want to go back and forth with you. I just want to correct the misinformation. The point is not that you want it to push in the stock app. Of course we all would. The point is that you said you have to check it manually to get alerts - and that is not true.
