I don't have an optimus yet (currently have a droid x)... but I don't believe the default android email app supports peak/off-peak so if the optimus is using the default email app you won't have support for peak/off-peak out of the box.
If you are fairly technically inclined I'd recommend trying out tasker. It takes a while to learn but it can be used to automate a number of things (I use it to switch my phone to vibrate during meetings, turn on wifi when I'm at home, etc.).
Tasker has an autosync option that can be used to turn on/off datasync, you can turn this on/off based on day/time. I haven't tried this setting so I don't know what it's affect is on other services (i.e. if you have personal emails that you still want to sync during off peak this solution problably wouldn't be a good way to go).
