That should be it.

What problems are you having? Push is not showing up as an option? Or after you configure push, it's not working properly? Either way, I would try the quit/restart routine mentioned earlier in this thread and see if that fixes the problem.

Also remember, as per the thread subject, that push doesn't seem to be working for any folder other than Inbox if you're using the "new" server settings -- imap.fastmail.com. So for now at least, to get push on your subfolders, you need to use the old mail.messagingengine.com set-up.

When I use a sieve rule to put a new mail message to a sub folder I don't get a notification or see any "new message count" . I use the standard iOS and mac mail apps. But I had not configured the settings I mentioned in my post. Nor used the old imap server name as you suggest. So I will try again and see what happens.

Ps iOS settings are many, what happened to the apple idea of it just works. Separate conversation. Not a dig at fastmail

I'll be curious to learn if you're properly receiving push notifications on all your selected folders. If so, then perhaps FastMail (or Apple) fixed/changed something and the problem has gone away.

I haven't tested imap.fastmail.com since the push problem appeared a couple of weeks ago, so it's entirely possible that things have started working again since then.

I don't get much email but for the folders I do receive mail, notifications seem to be working.

Another problem I just noticed : when an email arrived, the notification appears on the lock screen, but then if I unlock the iPhone, the notification is not in the notification center.

I didn't have this problem before and I don't have this problem with Gmail app notification for instance (the notification are on the lock screen and on the notification center).

In the Settings / Notifications / Mail / Account, the "In notification center" is checked though.

Do you also have this problem ?

I seldom use the notification center, but I just checked and it is full of mail notifications, so apparently it is working.
