: New email alert, but no new emails

Aug 24th, 2008, 06:15 PM
So... this is a new one. Out of the 3 I've had, this is the first one to do this...

At least twice now today my phone has buzzed/alerted me of new email, yet when I wake it up to check, there's nothing there.

Has this happened to anyone else yet?

Check your junk e-mail folder. The mail app on the iPhone doesn't junk filter mail, but your desktop may have after you'd already received the mail.

my iphone just started doing this. im using yahoo push mail. if i watch the mail icon, the phone buzzes, the new message counter goes up by one, then drops back down. if i then go look at my messages, it checks for new messages and downloads the new one. the counter then goes up and stays up.

it doesn't appear to be a spam/filtering issue, because the new mail is in my inbox when i check it.


did you ever resolve this problem?

My phone just started doing this. It will buzz and do a little ring like I have gotten a new email but there is nothing there. I don't know...

i've noticed that it does not happen the first time you receive a message from particular email address.

so i send from [email protected] to [email protected] for the first time ever
phone buzzes, new mail counter goes to 1
i send another email from: [email protected] to [email protected]
phone buzzes, new mail counter goes to 2 then immediately drops back to 1

i take that back.
it is intermittent, still haven't figured it out
