    I am coming from a Blackberry (not BES but rather BIS). Using BIS, I am able to have the Blackberry Internet Service push my emails to my device for any email server, without needing to forward it anywhere.

    I want my email (user@host.com) to come directly to my iPhone without having to forward it to user@me.com.

    Is there a way to do this, or do I need to use the old fashioned "checking for mail" each time I go into the mail app?

    Currently the only way to push, to the best of my knowledge, email to the iphone is mobileme.

    The Mail app can check for mail on a specified interval, you don't have to go into the app in order to see if new mail has arrived.

    Under Mail Preferences in MobileMe see "External Mail" see:
    Check mail from an external POP account.

    Here you can tell it to Fetch your email. However, I prefer to have my mail forwarded. I would assume that Forwarded Mail would get to your quicker. If MobileMe has to Fetch your mail it would do it on an interval.

    an exchange sever will do it. I had a email account using kerio and that pushed to the iphone. but all those services require you to get a email host.
