iPhone Emails will display at the iDrive screen only if the email notifications at the iPhone is changed manually after each pairing.
For example: if your current iPhone Notification Center setting for emails is "Show 5 Unread Items" then manually change it to "Show 10 Unread Items" after each pairing is completed.
