    Manually fetching your emails is so much better than Push, trust me, the manager at Best Buy told me and he is trust worthy.

    Don't waste your time setting up Push, thats no good, no need.

    or just go to yahoo.com or google.com for your emails, its so much better to view your emails on Desktop, much better than your phone.

    Are you asking to receive a POP UP when you receive mail? There is no option for that. You'll just get the vibrate/tone when you receive mail and the badge on the mail icon.

    edit: You can forward your emails to your phone number (as a text) as a work around.

    I think he wants the same type of notification pop up you get when you receive a text or whatnot. As far as I know there isn't a way.

    There's an app for that I believe. It's called PushMail. Is this what you're looking for?

    If I understand correctly what you are looking for, iOS 5 should do this once it's released. It shouldn't be too much longer until it's out.

    Go get 'Boxcar' and follow its instructions. It's a free app and will give you what you want.
