    I have Mail listed in my notification center however, I don't get notified of new mails. The red circle on the Mail icon that should notify me of new emails doesn't appear. So, I keep having to launch the Mail app to check whether or not I have new emails and wait for them to get downloaded, when I exit the app this is when the red circle shows up with the number of the unread downloaded emails. Is this how it's supposed to work? Can't I get notified without having to launch it?
