Amyone else experienced this?

They will show up after I open "Mail" but not on their own

change your mail settings to either push or fetch at certain intervals. it sounds like you have it set now to manual, therefore it will only check for new mail once the mail app is opened or refreshed.

I have this issue with an inbox set up from my schools Microsoft 360 account. I'll get the audible alert and vibration but the badge won't show up.

Is badge selected for your email account in the notification settings?

Didn't even realize you could set those for individual accounts. Badges were on but alerts style was set to none. I'll see what that changes next time. Thanks for the tip.
