    Why are you using the Email Client and not the GMail app?

    Only true push mail is Gmail. Others poll for mail, and are thus, pull based. You can set up all accounts to gmail. Needs to be done via pc.

    If your email is a gmail account...use the gmail app not the mail client. Only way to get push email NOT gmail you must have an exchange account which you can use the email client to setup. Outside of that the email account will only use POP or IMAP.
