Notifications for mail when phone is in sleep mode

After 5 min my phone goes into Sleep? mode. How do I know if I have mail without turning it back on to check. I guess I just want to know if there is a notification(like a ring)

  • You can set the ring tone for mail in Setting-General-Sound. If the phone is on vibrate it will not ring for anything.
    You can also set push notifications for mail in Settings-Notifications. You can also set push notifications for only those contacts that you have set as VIP Contacts, to avoid every email you get coming through as a push notification.
