Hello Everyone,

Trying to get this figured out. It's driving me crazy.

I'm on latest beta versions for both watch and IOS 12

I get the notifications on my watch but I don't get a ring or a buzz. Settings are all correct as far as I can tell.

All other notifications work fine.

I dont think this is a beta problem, no one else has mentioned it yet.

Thanks!

I've noticed that my vibration and sound works with my POP email account, but the exchange email account will only do sound. I can't get vibration to work. Also, I can't get the "ALL INBOXES" to show up...even though I have two different accounts.

Just upgraded to watchOS 5 from watchOS 4 and I'm now getting the same problem. No sound or haptic for mail alerts except VIPs, so not fixed in the final release.

I have an IMAP FastMail account and an Exchange account.

I'm experiencing same issue and thought I was going crazy over the weekend after installing WatchOS5 GM last week. I'd look at my phone and see I got emails but could swear I never felt any haptic notification on my watch.

And this is with Mail.app using iCloud email address, so using native Apple "things".

EDIT: I've posted this to Apple Discussions (https://discussions.apple.com/message/33883318)
