    I tried:

    "Check for new email"

    "Refresh my email"

    "Do I have any new email"

    It doesn't refresh my inbox. I have my mail set to not manually fetch or push, to save battery life. How to I make siri check my mail?

    I haven't found a good way. She will tell about new email if it's on the phone but she won't refresh it.

    I'd be curious to learn a way too though.

    Siri is quite limited. Just about the only thing I find she does well, consistently, is set reminders.

    I think he just wants a "refresh" function. It wouldn't have to actually "look" at your mail, just check the server for anything new.

    You don't get the joke. Check the OP's thread history.

    Email's like sex. You shouldn't force it.. You should just let it happen and enjoy it when it comes...
