Maybe I am missing something. On the old email client in IOS 5at the bottom left was a way to manually check for emails. With IOS 6 it has gone. It is important for me because push for iCloud mail does not work in Germany where I Live - was part of a Motorola lawsuit here or some such. Which means the fastest my iPad can check iCloud mails is every 15 minutes. Not much use if you are having a "back & forth". The manual check button solved that problem, but now it has gone!
