Some more observations on the flaky behaviour of email (SMS seems to always work):

Switching iDrive (ignition) off and back on again stops email working again (no icon, no emails listed under messages in BMW Office)

If you have iPhone notifications setup correctly, changing the Alert Style from Banners to Alerts or making any change to the Alert Style fixes the problem and you then see new emails as an envelope in iDrive and see new emails listed. You have to do this every time you get in the car as a workaround to the problem. Not sure whose fault it is but hopefully they'll fix it

When you first get in and switch on it takes about 1 minute to initialise before it can register new SMS or email. You see a "busy" icon when it's initialising
