    Hi guys

    When I receive an email my iPad 2 does alert me with a beep but does NOT show the number of emails in red in the top right corner of the Mail icon any longer. My iPhone 4 is fine. Both on iOS 5.

    Have tried soft ( keep pressing power button for anew seconds and then move the slider ) and hard ( power + home button pressed for 10 sec. till Apple logo appears ) reboot to no avail.

    Anybody able to help with this problem?

    Have you checked in Settings>Notifications that everything under the Mail section is turned on?

    Yes. However, on my iPhone nothing is set to on in Mail in Notifications and yet it DOES display the number on the Mail icon when emails arrive.

    Hello Murphymar - welcome to the forum! :) You posted to a 6-year old thread and the last poster has never returned. A mod will likely come along and close this thread - in the future, take a look at the dates, simply a reminder. Hope that you enjoy the forum - plenty of great people here to help. Dave

    This thread is over 6 years old and deals with mail in iOS 5, 6 generations ago. As procedures have changed in the meantime and as the members in question have not been back, this thread is now closed to further replies.
