iDrive - Reading Emails with IOS6

Hi Guys,

Found some time to eventually install the 006 Telephone update in my car so I can get my iPhone 5 to send messages to the car.

I've got the Text messages working fine, and it's quite funny hearing the darlik read out messages, but I thought it was possible to get the Email sent as well? I've set the Emails up the same as the text messages, but they don't appear? I do have 3 email addresses going into my phone, but didn't think that would be a problem.

Has anyone else for the Emails working yet? Any tips/hints/advice?

There is a bug in IOS6 at the moment. To get it to work at the moment, wait until the phone has synced with the car, go to notifications on the Iphone, go to mail, toggle notifications off and on.

Just go to software update - it will update over the air. I'm going to try the toggle notifications as suggested above - is it necessary to do that each time you connect to the car?
