    Hey guys, I have both a Microsoft Exchange account and a Yahoo account, and I unlocked and jailbroken my iPhone.

    I tested push for both the Exchange and the Yahoo account. Worked for Exchange, but not for Yahoo. In the advance settings, all of them are in push.

    Why doesn't my Mail app notify me that I have new mail on my Yahoo? What the heck is going on here?

    Iv heard Yahoo push is very unreliable, might be better off putting yahoo on fetch.

    Yahoo push has always been unreliable for me. Sometimes it worked great, other times it didn't work at all. I wouldn't even receive an email I sent myself from another account (not even in my desktop inbox). I've never had any problems since I got MobileMe however. MM works perfectly for me.

    Yahoo push is a poorly designed, poorly implemented POS.

    If you're looking for a free Exchange account (to replace your free Yahoo account), I heartily recommend

    Another vote for Mail2web.

    Set up an account on getting my Iphone and the mail comes in straight away. Great free service to rival Mobile me.

    Precisely. Sometimes it's reliable but most of the time it's not.
