I just got an iPad, so this might sound like a n00b question, but it's bugging me a lot.
I have an iPad 2 Wifi, running iOS 4.3.5. I configured my Gmail in the mail app, have set the mail to Push, and am connected to Internet via wifi.
Now the problem is the mail app only checks for and downloads new mails when I open the app. If I press home button to go into another app, the mail app wont check for new email. Its only when I switch to mail app does it update. I would like it to be set up so that the mail app has push mail functionality and gives notifications automatically.
