Notification of new Google Mail on iPhone 5

ddantes asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11
I am inexperienced with the iPhone and its Apps.  I have a Google Mail account for which the administrator has disabled forwarding, IMAP and POP settings for security reasons.  I'd like to get a visible and audible notification of new mail, and I'd also like to be able to check for new mail automatically at short intervals.  Please advise if there is a way.   I don't believe that the gmail app for iPhone can accomplish this, because it appears to rely on a POP or IMAP server.
