    When receiving mail on yahoo (push), it instantly appears on both my ipad and iphone. But after reading the mail on the ipad, for instance, the iphone lockscreen notification never clears, and the mail app always shows 1 unread email until I explicitly open the app on the iphone and hit refresh.

    Is this a common problem on ios 5.0.1?

    Sounds like your Yahoo account is a POP account. Change it to IMAP.

    it is

    it is set on imap. when receiving mail, the notification is instant. it only fails to auto-update the read messages.

    PS. I don't even think you can configure yahoo mail as pop on iphone.
