    Only Yahoo, MobileMe, or Exchange push.

    Gmail and AOL don't offer push. Chances are your school doesn't offer push but you can check with your IT dept.

    It's not up to you. It's up to the people providing the e-mail.

    As was said, AOL and G-Mail don't offer it. If your school does or doesn't depends on if they use Exchange, and if they do, if they have push enabled on it.

    You'll have to ask them about that, no one here would know how they have their system set up.

    To use Yahoo! push do you have to get Yahoo! Mail Plus which is like $5 /mo?

    No, I created a new yahoo account when I bought my iPhone. Any free account would work.
