    Well, I got my mac, and I restored my iPhone 3G to 2.2, I setup 3 accounts, mail2web, which is on push as normal, gmail which is on fetch as normal, and yahoo which does not have the option for push, and when on fetch will only go manually, I have had it since 2 weeks after launch and I know how to use it very well. Is there something I could do to get oush to work?

    Frankly, Yahoo's push implementation just sucks.

    It's unreliable and glitchy -- and it has been ever since it was first introduced. Yahoo's "working on it" (as they have been for the last 4+ months, I might add) -- but until they design a version of push IMAP that doesn't suck, or until they use one of the existing implementations that don't suck, the iPhone's Yahoo! push e-mail will... well... suck.

    Yeah, but it worked with windows and now the feature just isn't there. Also on push it would delete the emails I deleted from online on my iPhone and from my iPhone online, but with fetch it doesn't work that way.
