I'm just recently new to the iPhone game (received my 4s yesterday after 7 years on blackberry) - so far I'm very happy with it, but I had a question I hope some of you can help me understand...
On blackberry, emails were pushed to my phone instantly to their respective inboxes. I believe this was a BES function. On my 4s, I sometimes receive email notifications, but sometimes have to manually click on the mail icon to refresh the inboxes to read new emails.
Can somebody clear this up for me? Is there a setting I can change to make all inboxes instantly receive emails and notify me?
(I'm aware this is probably a pretty green question, but anyway...)
Thanks for the help.

Yeah, came from long line of blackberry too! The push needs to be on like he said and it kinda pushes the email. What you're talking about wasn't just for BES though, as it was on BIS too. The push is a lot slower but that was about the only thing that blackberry did very well.

Thanks for the quick responses -
Yea, I realized my gmail isn't push compatible so I switched the fetch option to 15 minutes.
For my push compatible emails, though - how long does it usually take for them to send you the mail notification? I've waited 10+ minutes for some test emails ... is that pretty standard?
