Follow these steps and you could save yourself the hourly push for emails. (This works for GMail). It sends you a text alert everytime you get an email. Most of the time in a matter of second. I used this method on my iphone to save battery life from email pushing. - log on to you gmail account - click on settings on the right top corner - click on fowarding and pop/imap tab - in the fowarding section click the "foward a copy of incoming mail to (at this point enter your 10 digit phone email@example.com) - click save changes you will now recieve a text message whenever you get an email. So all you battery hoggs can keep your push off if you want.
