    Default 3.0 Push E-mail
    I was looking around and trying to get my push e-mail working...and was just wondering if this feature is new to 3.0 or if its been around for awhile and is just new for apps.

    Also, how exactly do I get it to work? I'm using g-mail and hotmail and have never recieved a notification, do these two services simply not support push notification?

    Thanks

    Push works with Exchange and services that offer Push. I dont believe GMAIL or HOTMAIL work. Push came out last year I believe.

    Yahoo and MobileMe are the only ones to offer Push that I know of.

    I created a little work around with my gmail push......

    I did have to create a yahoo account but went to my gmail settings and had all my mail forwarded to my yahoo address and set the phone for push on yahoo accounts... works like a charm and perfectly....

    just search google for setting up gmail to forward and you should be good to go with your yahoo acounts

    8Gig > 1.0.2 FW (broken vibrate after a while)
    8Gig > 1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2(Jonny5 Still alive)

    I did the same as above, but since I don't want people to reply to my yahoo account, I set up my embarq email account as a POP. On my embarq email account, I forward everything to yahoo, and have it set to not keep messages that it forwards... On the iphone, I have it set to never automatically check mail on my embarq account(not that I'd get any, since I set the embarq server settings to forward all email to Yahoo, then delete...).

    When you have more than one email account setup on your iPhone, every time you reply to an email, you can pick which email address you want to send FROM... so all my messages look like they come from my embarq account. The only people that know I have a Yahoo email account are me, Yahoo!, and I suppose anyone reading this now.

    It would be nice if you could change the default "FROM" field from yahoo to embarq, since as of now, I have to change it every time, but I only send maybe 3-4 emails/day.

    That sounds like a pretty good deal for gmail, any idea what I can do for hotmail?

    Okay, so I'm not sure if this is going to work because my phone / e-mail accounts are still being spammed. But what I did was add my hotmail as an account on gmail, and then forward all gmail mail to yahoo :P

    hmm, so what happened with yahoo and its push ?
    Just got a 3GS and its not pushing anything as far as im concerned. I had a 3G prior and was very dependable.

    All the settings are correct. It's just not working.

    Am i missing something, but doesnt email push already exist???

    In settings for email accounts you can set it to fetch, a minimum of every 15 minutes, and it then checks automatically and displays the unread badge on the Mail.app.

    I understand that this is not true push but it gets me by.

    that's all good in your case. but you have to take into consideration others that work long hours and rely on their phone to be there throughout their day. checking mail every 15mins isnt really efficient on battery life.

    as far as im aware, if youre not on mobileme or an exchange server or on a yahoo accnt at the very least. push isnt an option.

    at the moment, my yahoo mails are taking 25mins to reach my box on the iphone. not exactly 'push'. hehe.

    was working fine on my 3g 2.2.1
    dont know what the deal is with new firmware/3gs.
