Hi MiniEgg and all. No I am not still suffering, but (all this was a year ago) I can't figure out why after a quick look. I deleted the BT app and got my email via the phone app after a while, since there seemed to be no improvement. However, my wife persisted on her ipad, and after a while things seemed to stabilise, so I reinstalled and it works fine for me. I don't get dropdown or sound notifs (hurray - I check periodically anyway) BUT I don't get an unread counter badge either. All my notification settings are turned on, so offhand, I can't figure out why.
