    I have 3 emails. 2 gmail and 1 outlook for work.

    I would like the gmails set to push and the work set to manual.

    I set up my gmail account first because I wanted to import all my contacts. It worked perfectly.

    Now it seems like in the mail settings you have to select push on or off. In advanced settings I set the gmails to push and the outlook to manual, but if I select push I still get all my emails pushed to me. If I turn it off, nothing pushes.

    Any suggestions?

    Not sure I fully follow the question, but to Push GMAIL, you need to set it as an Exchange acct. The Gmail option only allows you to fetch.

    In order to set specified delivery for diff accts go into "Fetch new data"and go down to advanced.
    Once in Advanced you can select how you want each acct to be handled for mail delivery. IE. Push, Fetch schedule, or Manual.

    ok perfect..thank you.

    And just to make sure, when I used advanced and set each account, I keep the push option in the screen before set to On, correct?
