Default Notifications for new email not working?

Using the stock email app, I am not receiving visual notifications when new messages arrive, even though I have checkbox selected to do so. The email account I'm downloading is IMAP email. Anyone know why it may not be working?

Thanks.

What is your Sync schedule? Is it set to Push? If it's manual or some other (longer, especially) time delay then your phone won't know it has email until the Sync occurs.

Go into Sync settings, Sync schedule, Set sync schedule, and select Push.

Also, I assume you are talking about notifications up in the notification bar, correct? If you are talking about the little 'badges' that show up on the email app icon, that's a whole different story. You need an app for that.

Yes, I mean the notifications at top. it was set to push, though it was also set to Peak Schedule, so I unchecked peak schedule. I'm guessing that was the problem? Why would you want Peak Schedule checked?

Thanks.

I am still not getting notifications for this account. Any other ideas as to why it may not be working?

Thanks.

Some folks want or need their email to come ASAP while they're at work, and then don't want to be bothered (or bothered as much) when they're home. Others are the exact opposite, because they have access to a computer during work hours, and then are "on-call" when at home. The "Peak schedule" setting allows those people to set the email app to sync differently at different times of the day.

EDIT: never mind... just re-read the first post...

Hmm.....a strange problem indeed.

EDIT2: (Sorry for the scatter-brained responses...I've been preoccupied for most of the day)
The email type shouldn't make a difference on the notification being received, but as someone else alluded to, it could affect when it's received. Who is the email account through that you're using the email app for (Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.)?
