Same issue. But my iPhone 4 does it as well. Only thing is with my iPhone it maintains a persistent 3G connection so at least I'm getting my messages as they arrive. But if I relied solely on WiFi and my device was in sleep mode, I wouldn't get any notifications.
On my iPad 2 I've tried forgetting the network, renew lease, rebooted, airplane mode etc. Nothing works.
It's not crippling my device but it's really annoying and it's not the way it should behave.

yes i have been experiencing this issue too in which none of my email accounts will push/fetch messages unless i go to the app and manually fetch the messages. i'm on ipad2 wifi only version
just curious but have you been experiencing problems with imessage as well. it seems that whenever my email is not pushing messages, imessage isn't working

Yes. iMessage requires a persistent data connection (wifi or 3G) so when it's sleeping and I'm only using wifi, wifi goes to sleep too so no messages come through.

Does anyone know when this mail problem will be sorted, is it worth uninstalling ios6 and reinstall ios5?
I am getting so annoyed at not being able to send and receive mail.
Any replies would be appreciated.

I have IPad 2, since upgrade to IOS 6 my email has been extremely unreliable. I have deleted and set up accounts again but same results. At least 50% of the time not even manual updating of inbox works, for instance have just tried to update email now, but after refresh it is telling me last update was last night and inbox remains with old emails. I have also had same issue but less severe with iPhone 4.

I seem to be getting pushed emails, but sending has been a nightmare...particularly forwarding or sending a page/link from Safari. Doe anyone know a fix for this? Is Apple working on it?
