I won’t be notified of new mail until I open the iOS mail app. Any ideas why this is happening or how to fix it.

Hello Cleanmachine1,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!

I understand from your post that you are not receiving emails unless you open the Mail app. What you are describing sounds like the Fetch New Data settings are set to Manually. Use the settings listed below to change the frequency

Tap Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Fetch New Data then choose Automatically, Manually, Hourly, Every 30 Minutes or Every 15 Minutes.

Best Regards.

My settings are already set to automatically. I’ve tried all the settings and none seem to work until the app is open.

Is this a Yahoo email account by chance? If so I've read that they have stop pushing emails, most likely to get user to ue their Yahoo mail app instead of Apples.
