    I've been playing with this for days and at my wits end.
    I do not get notification of emails, ie no sound,no notification at email icon.
    Yet if I click my email and then inbox sure enough I receive them.
    So have have read many articles, and tried everything suggested,ie re booted,reset,deleted email account and set up again,turned on push and fetch etc.

    Ok here's the obvious I have my phone and wife's iPad by my side all receive email, so it's not wi fi.
    I have installed yahoo on iPad, this receives mail ok, it just the ready installed email that dosnt receive ....until I hit the inbox, it used to work perfectly but no longer.

    I don't know what else to try suggestions please

    If you want to receive notifications, you'll have to set this up for the account in Settings - Notifications - Mail - the account.
    If it simply has to be the small red circle with the number of new emails, enable "Badge App Icon".
    It's also possible to select an account specific sound there.

    You'll find all the other options how to receive notifications as well:

    Hope that helps.

    You have to go to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars>Fetch New Data and turn on the Push switch. Then tap on the email account desired and select Push. Now your email messages will automatically download and you will receive the notifications mentioned in the previous posts.

    Thank you but have already checked this,the only thing I can think of is maybe server settings are wrong.
    But email is there after tapping so assume they are ok ?

    Did you set up the account for the Mail app using Yahoo?

    Yes I set it up via yahoo as per your email,didn't work,I then added a gmail address to see if yahoo was the problem,still didn't work
    Last night I tried to reset to factory settings,it's a 4 hour download, but my internet times out after two hours
    .so still with problem I have sat down with wife mini iPad and checked every setting andd still have the problem.
    I can only assume that is a glitch in IOS 8.3 that is compatible with mini iPad but not mine

    I can't find a way to roll back update ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Use iTunes to restore your device.

    Reset your iPad afterwards: press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of both. The iPad will power up on it's own.

    In case you're thinking of reverting to a previous software version: that's not possible. The only iOS you'll be able to install is 8.3.

    I have tried to restore via iTunes, but it say I want 4hrs to download, that's not a problem for me but the internet times out after two hours.

    So stuck until I get BT infinity hopefully then I can try again
