    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?

    Thanks!

    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.
