    At this point I have gmail and the regular Mail built in (fetching mail from a SMTP server) syncing fine, but they do that separately.
    Obviously, this means triggering the 3G connection twice, once for gmail and once for the Mail app, which in turn means wasted battery life.
    Is there a solution? Is there an app that can trigger them both to sync at the same time?

    I assume you mean POP3. (SMTP is for SENDING email)

    Polling does use battery. If you set up your gmail app to PUSH instead of pull it will save some juice.

    As far as I know there is no way to coordinate polls (and not sure if there was that it would save battery.)

    Forward your pop mail account to your gmail account.

    Sorry for the mistake. I meant IMAP mail, not SMTP.

    nightfishing, care to elaborate on gmail push?
