    Wouldn't battery life improve if new email was checked for through Push Notification Service instead of doing checks through the email app/service?

    Why doesn't apple give option to use PNS for email?

    Well I don't know if this is what you have in mind...but I downloaded this app called PushMail which you set up as forwarding your email to a new address they make for you and you get the push notification, with a pop up where you can specify if you want the sender, subject etc etc, custom sound for each address (if you have several), or badge. It's up to you....and you can exclude certain domains or addresses from the app so you will not be notified...and they have a timed silent mode etc. It's super versatile.

    Since I got I switched the IMAP push settings to once an hour instead of the 15 mins...and I think it has saved battery. You could set it to manual and it will never check (but I put hourly just in case I don't get a PushMail notification)...

    There are apps for that so try it if you like. E.g.'pushmail'
