    If you're talking about mail.app, you may have some luck if your server supports IMAP IDLE. MobileMe isn't true "push" so really, you're not going to speed things up more than once a minute anyway.

    If you're talking about iPhone, you'll need to either pay for Exchange hosting or use a Yahoo account.

    Not THIS discussion again! :)

    I'm not going to get into an argument about semantics.

    Aside from MobileMe, your "push" options are paid-for Exchange or a free Yahoo account.
