    Hi everyone.

    I know it's a silly question, but I was wondering if anyone could give me a simple answer. I'm used to the email delivery system on my Blackberry. I have just set up my Gmail account on my iPad and am a little confused about the push/fetch options. I always have to go into my inbox and have to update it to receive an email (long after I have actually received it on my Blackberry).

    I was wondering what settings I need to setup on my iPad to allow my Gmail new messages to appear right away?

    Thanks for the help

    Set up your gamil as an exchange account, then it will push

    Settings -> Mail, Calendar, Contacts -> Fetch New Data -> Push -> ON
    Fetch -> Every 15 minutes
