“Push” mail notification on Rogers Yahoo mail

As far as I can see with a Rogers Yahoo email account, and an Apple Mail client working with the latest iOS, “push” mail is not possible, and it must be fetched. Why is this? Any references to “push” email notification that I have read online state that any modern email server should be able to push the emails, rather than have my phone fetch them.

Hello, @mhancock0.
 

Thank you for posting your query in the Community. The Mail app should be able to fetch new emails automatically; have you checked the ‘Fetch New Data’ settings for Rogers’ email?

 

Go to Settings > Mail > Accounts > Rogers email > Fetch New Data. If ‘Push’ is selected and it’s not downloading the emails automatically, then you can try selecting ‘Fetch’ and select ‘Automatically’. 

 

Please keep us posted on the outcome. 

 

Cheers,
RogersMoin

Thank you for replying.
In my case running an iPhone 8 with the latest iOS, Push notification is not made available to me specifically in Rogers Yahoo accounts. The only options are Fetch or Manual. In the Fetch setting the options are automatically or after a specified time period. When in this setting it can be up to 15 or 30 minutes later that I get an email in my Apple Mail app after it has been received by the Rogers Yahoo servers and displayed in my Rogers Yahoo app.
Since my original post, I have learned that Apple Mail running in iOS will only fetch automatically if the phone is connected to Wi-Fi and in a charging state.
Does this make sense to you or any other forum members?
I cannot believe that Apple would put such restrictions on fetching mail. Perhaps not enough people use Apple Mail in iOS to be frustrated by this otherwise I’m sure Apple would have changed this procedure.
