I have recently inherited my mums iPhone 5. It keeps alerting me to my new emails (day and night) so I changed the setting to 'none' but it still alerts me. So I took it to the apple store.. He didn't know why it was doing this, but showed be how to use the 'do not disturb' for night. As I had other issues too he told me to come back to the genius bar(!) I did and they just gave me a new phone!!! But this one still alerts me to emails!!! What am I doing wrong please! I set me do not disturb to stop at 7 In case I need to be contacted for work.. But forget to change it for weekends and it's like an alarm!!!
Any ideas??? :-)

Have you tries the Airplane mode?
Go to settings, sounds, there is a range of sounds listed. The bar at the top is like a volume one. I turned that right down. Further down the page are your mail settings. Check those to make sure they are ok.

The man at Apple suggested this to prolong the battery.. But forgive me for being old fashioned, but I'd still like to make and receive calls on my phone!!! It's a pain to be woken first thing to a crappy email. But them they come frequently through the day (and 95% of them are of little interest!)

The new mail is set to vibrate only and the volume is as low as it can go!?
Don't include Mail in the Notifications

It's set to include 10 unread items.. But can't find where to cut it out all together
Settings/Notification Center/Mail
I am using an ipad2 but if you tap on the 'new mail' in sounds I can change it to none. I was having the same problem.
Settings/Notification Center/Mail/Show In Notification Center
Just had another look at settings. Go to 'do not disturb' & turn manual on. Also at the bottom of this page 'Silence' tick the box for 'always'.
