    I'm new to iOS and was wondering if I need to have both gmail and exchange for my email. I'm getting 2 copies of each email because I have 2 of the same inbox.

    Exchange isn't "email" it's a delievery system. So no you can delete the non-exchange Gmail account, which is setup with IMAP by default.

    Nope, you only need one! Personally, I prefer set up through exchange because I find that I get them pushed immediately.

    So if I delete the gmail account my email will still be pushed through the exchange account?

    i actually setup my mail and calendar through the gmail account setup, and then my gmail contacts through the gmail exchange account (m.google.com) setup method... simply because contacts aren't a sync option under the regular gmail acccount setup...

    i have found though the email portion to work a bit smoother with the regular gmail account rather than through the exchange method... despite being pull, not true push...

    Yes, it will. Mine is currently set up like that and works fine.
