    SMTP Server

    Why not? You'd just have to set it up manually and not use the iPhone's pre-set Yahoo account set up. But you can find the settings for the Incoming Mail server (its something like imap.yahoo.apple.mail.com or something long and crazy like that).

    has anyone done this yet? what are the settings?


    i thought this would allow you to have push email, while still using gmail as your primary email account.

    no .. it isn't possible. this has been asked billions of times. the only hope we have is that gmail introduces push mail for iphone users. since a google exec sits on apple's board, i am surprised it hasn't happened yet. for now, be happy with the checking every 15 minutes. maybe apple will allowed it to check ever minute in the future.
