Now it is working.
I receive over hundred emails a day, of which 40 or so actually matter for work, etc.
It sounds like if you have to switch on notifications to Alert on your accounts, I would go bonkers receiving all these email alerts on the phone while not in the car.
Am I missing something?

The benefit of seeing emails in the car would be greatly offset by the nuisance of the notifications on the phone.

Text messages on the other hand make more sense to me.

The biggest issue I had hoped for IOS6 to resolve was to play my whole music library that I have via iTunes Match. I thought they would switch to streaming, not downloading.
So far, I can only see the empty playlists, as before (via USB).
