Macintosh OS/iPad email


When I start the iPad email app it does not look for new mail. If I get out of the app and go back in a second time it will look for mail. How can I force it to look for new mail ? Thanks

What iPad with what version of iOS?
Using Mail app? Who provides your email ( is the mail POP or IMAP?
"New email should arrive automatically but you can force the iPad to check for new mail by tapping the refresh icon in the bottom left-hand corner. "
