I am in the same boat as you. I want push without using mobileme I don't the .me email. There is free push service from a few other 3rd parties but I am not sure how well they work so I am kind of waiting to see if anyone else uses them and posts it. I also believe you can setup a yahoo account which is push and have aol mail forwarded to that account and then you will have push however I don't know if sending out mail if it sends from the yahoo account or aol? I want strictly AOL.
