    I don't want that.  I want the way it was suppose to work.  If they don't fix it in 5.0.1 I will be ******.

    5.0.2 is already in Beta, and I don't want it either. But I'm getting all of my email all the time. I'll delete the other account when they fix it. It's really no different. You get the notification and open it from the notification screen, and it updates both accounts. I just choose not to suffer.

    I deleted my iCloud account from my iPhone last week and it started pushing again but only for 48 hours.  Then I turned iCloud Mail off, switched my phone off, switched the iPhone again and then switched mail iCloud switch back on.  I've now had 5 days in of perfect (normal MobileMe) service.


    In fact, in the last hour or so all of the updates I have had on this thread have hit my iPhone about twenty seconds before they hit my MacBook on which I write this.  My 3G connection seems to be quicker than my 100M SDSL line tonight...


    My solution has been bolded - I suspect it means the problem is at the server end rather than at the client end.

    This getting crazy.


    Here's what we've gathered:  iCloud mail is broken, others have reported Yahoo is broken too.  I believe both rely on the iOS push method.  Gmail works fine; it relies on ActiveSync.  People have tried tinkering with settings and mistakenly convince themselves it's fixed and then it becomes obvious at a later point that no amount of "turn this off, turn this on, stand on one foot, and wave your hand in the air" is going to fix it.


    If you want push email that works, for now you need to go to a provider with Exchange support.  iCloud mail is pretty entry-level stuff anyhow.  Do yourself a favour and move to a provider that gives you vastly better rule support and lets you pick which folders to push.  You may not need it today, but you'll eventually hit a wall where iCloud mail is much less than you need for efficient use of email.  You can even forward your iCloud mail there so you don't miss a message.

    This was my experience also - until yesterday.


    My Push was working since I deactivated iCloud Mail Push, Rebooted Phone, then reactivated iCloud Mail Push late last week.  Worked flawlessly.


    Monday morning I had to Reboot my phone (it stopped working with my alarm clock).  Mail continued to work throughout the day, hours after the Reboot.


    Then off of a sudden it stopped and at 9pm I checked and had 7 emails from 5pm - 9pm that were never pushed.

    This seems to happen on and off. Happened also with MobileMe.


    Apple, please fix!!!!!!

    To those that are interested. I have set up an additional iCloud email. The settings are a few pages back. But when one Doesn't push, the other does. I've been getting all of my email pushed. It's not a solution. But a work around for now.

    Just adding to the discussion... I have a iPad2 and an iPhone 4S both running iOS5. Push email works flawlessly on ipad2 on wifi as long as the mail app is running in the bkgd. But on my iphone 4S it's hit and miss. Sometimes they get pushed, sometimes they don't. I have the same settings on both devices.


    Any ideas???

    Like many people are saying it's hit and miss, works then don't work.

    What I find odd is if adding a new icloud account fixes this, how does it change anything in the iPhone or iPad for it to then start pushing 100%.

    One more here. Didn't push, then, about a week or two ago, pushed for a bit. Now hasn't pushed for at least a week.

    This has been working for me now for about two weeks but not for my mobileme aliases.


    On that note, does anyone know how I get back the ability to send from different aliases on the iphone? It's very confusing for my recipients.

    I updated to iOS 5.0.1 yesterday and push has been working ever since. Let's hope it stays that way...

    Well after update it seemed to work but this morning I had 3 missed emails not pushed.

    Anyway decided to do hard reset and on reboot I had no account, the reboot had removed the account.

    Added the iCloud account again and it's been pushing 100% since.

    Seems the 5.01 needs a reboot and re-add of account in order to function correctly.
