Not known, though the only thing they actually announced was push through exchange. (Gmail would be through IMAP IDLE, presumably, which some people argue isn't "push," anyway).

I don't think GMAIL even supports IDLE yet. In fact, I think GMAIL's entire IMAP implementation is still pretty raw (i.e. needs a lot of work). The label -> folders thing, for example, is madness. I had to remove all my labels just to stop my iPhone and Mail.app from downloading multiple copies of each message.

(Anyone know how Yahoo "push" works? Is it IDLE?)

GMAIL does support IDLE. I use it in Mail.app to read google mail, and it definitely works.

Yahoo Push uses some other thing - not IDLE. I forgot what it was. Proposed new spec. There is some discussion of it by Marc, the Chattermail guy, elsewhere on these boards.
