    Ok Im having issues with my hotmail account through apple native email app and google account wont push with apple native app. I downloaded the exchange email app which is pretty nice but my problem is when I'm in a web page decide to email it goes to apples native app..Is there a workaround apples email app so it can default to exchange email? I dont care if i have to jailbreak, its no sense in having 2-3 email apps

    If you jailbreak you can force iOS to allow you to set the default apps. There are a number of different options in Cydia.

    The google not pushing with the apple app is a google decision - they removed that ability a while ago.

    Seems like the Outlook app was just updated in the last day or so to support sharing from the browser and other apps.

    I use the iOS email app with gmail and have no issues. I like using the native email client as it integrates with the other native apps.

    True no push but you can fetch up to every 15 minutes. I fetch every 1/2 hour and have no complaints with that.

    There are no default apps that can be changed in iOS (at least not without jailbreaking). Some apps can offer you the option to use certain other apps, but that's mostly it. The other way is through share extensions as I described when you would select the particular app you'd want to do something in, like share a URL.

    I use the native Mail app with outlook... What is your issue with it, because I have not once had any errors or missed push notifications.

    You may do better to find a 3rd party app on the App store that works with your accounts and then completely turning Mail off.
