    If your iPhone Mail account is set up as a gmail account, will push still work? Or is it just for Mobileme or other servers? thanks

    There is NO push for gmail.....yet.
    However, you can forward your gmail to Mail2Web and use that to "Push" them to your iPod.

    i read somewhere that it does work as push, but it never seemed to actually work for me. i've also used mail2web, and i honestly couldn't figure out how to set it up. if your iphone is jailbroken, install something in cydia called "PushMod". it allows you to set up your mail to be fetched every minute. it uses up the battery somewhat quicker, but for me at least, if i'm ever in need of seeing an email as soon as it arrives instead of up to 15 minutes after, it's at least a lot less of a strain on the battery than sitting and staring at the mail screen tapping refresh every couple seconds.

    It DOES push, you just have to go to your mail settings, and turn on Push, on 2.2.1 anyway.

    Gmail does not push, it defaults to fetch. Set fetch to never and you will never get any mail when you email yourself in 2.2.1 or 3.0. It's because IMAP IDLE is not working.
