Hope it helps>>>
I've followed all the tips outlined in the forum and still can't get email to work properly on my iphone since the upgrade.
i can't send email from the phone and messages that do come in don't synch with my computer when i delete from either place.
when I deleted iCloud, as someone suggested, I lost everything. Contacts, etc. Fortunately, restoring it brought them back. I've deleted and resotred my email account on the the iphone, too and still nothing.
Thoughts on what to do now?
I have iCloud set up on my iPad2 (with OS5) and iPhone 4s (with OS5) and "push" mail works 100% everytime on my iPhone but works only intermittently on my iPad.
I have removed my iCloud account, re-added it, tried it with Mail On and Off but it makes no difference. I have deleted my Gmail account from my iPad and reset the device several times then reloaded Gmail (as Exchange mail using m.google.com as the server) but it makes not a jot of difference.
I can no longer rely on notice from my iPad of incoming mail but only on my iPhone.
My iPad and iPhone sync up to my Google Account, I only use iCloud as a backup medium (I think... but I get easily confused...) and on the face of it both devices are setup identically but only one works! This morning my iPad started to resond to "pushed" email but later on decided it didn't like doing that and now only "finds" mail when I open the app.
Irritating is too small a word for it!

I've found a fairly straight forward fix if you're having this problem, I'm sure it won't work for all but it will work for some. This is easier to try than restting your network settings and deleting your iCloud account, so try it first.
If you've already got an Exchange account set up but not working - you get the "Password Incorrect" message then; 1) delete the Exchange account. 2) set up a new Exchange account. 3) enter your Domain name. 4) continue set up as usual. My iPad 2 wifi/3G is connected to iCloud and my company Exchange server, I get the full Outlook suite email/contacts/calendar/etc.
I found that for some reason omitting the domain name during set up, even though Apple says it's optional, it isn't. If this doesn't work then try the other methods.
Delete the Exchange account, then create a new one. Enter the Domain name (its not optional like set up indicates) and everything else. Do NOT just enter the Domain name to an existing Exchange account, that won't work. You must delete your exchange account off your iPad and iPhone, and set up a new one and enter everything. Both iCloud and Exchange should play nice.
I had the same problem. After updating to iOS5 my office based outlook exchange would not push email to either my iPad or my iPhone. I re-set repeatedly without any change. Additionally, every morning (or after midnight if I was checking it that late) I would receive multiple messages that my password and settings were incorrect. I had to open the settings and change something (it didn't matter what I changed) to get the connection to work. I would simple delete one letter in the domain name and then re-type it to connect. After reading all of this thread I figured out that iCloud is screwing with my exchange connection. The only thing linked to outlook via the cloud was my notes. I turned notes off and viola, all emails pushed. Additionally, the morning re-set problem disappeared as well. Unfortunately, now all my notes are gone. I've determined that if I need to read or create a note that I have to turn notes on in the cloud settings, open notes (my notes then quickly load) read my note,mclose notes and then turn notes off in the cloud settings. It's about 10 extra steps but it works.
same here. on my ipad 2 ...
ios 4.x worked faultlessly all the time
ios 5 didnt give me any auto pushes.
ios 5.0.1 was intermittent and occasional.
deleting my icloud account seems to have solved the problem, even though ALL of my icloud settings for every option were set to OFF and i never used it in the first place.
