    You need a mail account that supports "push". Who is your provider & what type of account?

    When you say "I tried notification centre", I assume you have done the following.  If not, try it:

     

    In Settings > Notifications > Mail > Gmail:

    1. Set Notification Center to "On".
    2. Select "Banners"
    3. Make sure Badge App Icon is "On".
    4. Make sure New Mail Sound is <something>
    5. Make sure View in Lock Screen is "On".

    Hey!

     

    The reason your iPhone isn't telling you, you have received a new email, is because it hasn't been told to. On the iPhone 5s (same on all models -- 4s) the default setting for emails is hidden.

    Here's a guide path to help.

     

    Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch new data -> scroll to the bottom, and set the fetch time from 'manual' to 'every 15, 30 or 60 minutes' 

     

    Your iPhone will now notify you of a new email.

     

    Hope everything works out!
