    Hi guys.

    Just recently started work and for the first time I've put on Push, before it was fetch every hour as I didnt check email that often, now however, I need the email instatnly.

    So I ran some tests, sent an email to my gmail account from my computer, waited 5 mins but still do not recieve it. When I press the mail button on the iPhone it then says connecting and it downloads the email.

    In settings I have Push set to On and fetch is still on every 15mins.

    Thanks

    HamzaB

    So, does this apply for Gmail as well? Me-think's its only for contacts, calender etc...

    Instead of clicking the Microsoft exchange one, my one is set up on Gmail? Should I delete that and set it up using microsoft exchange?

    I was under the impression that you should get it working through Google Sync.
    Otherwise, GMail doesn't support Push.
