Im a previous android user so bare with me on this one
Before on my DROID X, I was able to add 2 Gmail accounts (one personal and one for work) in the email client and my AOL on the BLUR(Motorolas UI) app. Anyways, all 3 emails were set to PUSH notification and it worked like a charm.
Now Im currently aware that Apple Mail does not support PUSH for Gmail AOL IMAP and POP accounts so I been reading and Microsoft Exchange is the way to go.
I tried setting my work email on exchange but after Im done setting it up it asks me again in a pop-up window that the password is wrong. I type it again and it just wont take it.
Any ideas here please? I really need PUSH email for work

Are you following these instructions?
Setting up Google Sync with your iOS device - Google Mobile Help
Typically issues like you're running into are due to the domain and/or user ID being incorrectly specified.
FYI, POP accounts aren't push by definition. You'd need a "middle man" to query the POP account and then push the email if you want push whether you're on an iPhone or any other device. It would still technically be pull though. No mail client can make a pull account into push. The server has to initiate mail transfer for it to be push.

I had the same issue but you have to set it up as a Microsoft exchange account. And use our @gmail address and the domain is m.google.com. Also you have to follow the link to the website in gmail.com support to "allow" your emails to be pushed to your account.
Thats the exact guide I used.
I have a corporate domain. So its not @gmail.com but I use google apps to check the mail.
Anyways, after the setup, everything goes well until its done adding. Then it pop-ups asking me to put the password for the exchange account. I dont have 2-step activation system so I dont know what the problem might be...
