    Hi,

    since yesterday I don't get notification banners for email anymore.

    Once an email is received (via push) I get the notification sound, the icon badge and the symbol in the statusbar (from OpenNotifier) but no banner pop-up.
    Changing notification settings from banner to alert style doesn't help - no pop-ups will appear.
    This also affects the lockscreen as no alert bubbles will show up on lockscreen when email arrives.

    Apart from email, notification banners and pop-ups are working properly on all other applications such as Calendar, iMessage and 3rd party apps.

    All kinds of changes in the settings (with and without rebooting the iPad) didn't help.

    Does anyone know where to find the corresponding plist to check the actual notification settings?

    Or any other clue how to solve this?

    Thanks,
    Henry

    Try running it in safe mode to see unit still persist. If it does then find the bad tweak.

    Settled...

    I went into safe mode, but before starting to check for problem causing tweaks I (fortunately) checked the notifications settings.

    And guess what, the mail settings showed the pop-ups set to 'none' and view in lockscreen 'off'.
    Settings of all other apps where same as in 'normal' mode.

    So I changed mail settings to pop-up 'banners' and view in lockscreen 'on' and exit safe mode.

    Everything's running properly again since.

    No idea what initiated the mail notification settings to turn off and what impeded any alteration in 'normal' mode - but as long as it keeps running I don't care at all ;)
