    I have Yahoo and that is the address that is pushed to my iphone. I am wondering what people have experienced with Yahoo and Gmail. Is one more fast at getting emails to your phone or doesn't it matter??? Sometimes my wife emails me at 9am (her works is through iserv) and I don't get them until 7pm. Other times it goes through with no problem. Just wanted to get thoughts from people. Thanks for the input!

    Well Gmail does not push at all on the iPhone. It is IMAP though, but you can set that to fetch at certain time intervals. Yahoo is suppose to push, but... it does not do that good of a job. If you want reliable email pushed you need to look at a exchange account or MobileMe. Good luck.

    There will be times it does not push... trust me. Until then, consider yourself lucky.

    yahoo has worked well like 90% of the time, not as good as my exchange which is like 99%, but it's free so can't really complain

    I agree, it has worked about 90% of the time. Maybe 85%.

    See the thing is, when it goes down... it goes down for days... and that's not good.

    I haven't noticed it being down for days at a time...maybe 24 hours at most. But then again, I get "dinged" for my exchange email, and then I check them both at the same time, so maybe it really is down more frequently than I calculated.

    I use both too. Yahoo! is my primary account and it works very well for me.

    I am having trouble with my yahoo mail. I love the push when it works. But I am not getting my emails fast enough. I think it's yahoo's servers. I have had this email account for many years, but I think I might have to switch. I have a group of about 5 friends that have a open conversation over email every morning. It is becoming hard to participate because I am not getting my emails on time.
    Is there any other free(or cheap) push email alternative to yahoo?
