    Just wondering if setting the email to push new messeges through is worse for batt life than having the phone check on every hour or several hours?

    I believe push is better as it's not checking constantly but is only pushed when mail arrives.

    I have been dealing with this issue myself.

    I found it best to not use push. I noticed that the email app started using a lot of battery power. Above both display and system standby. And using "Watchdog", the com.android.email app was using far more cpu time then anything else.

    But once I went in and changed the setting from push to pull every 15m, my battery life increase considerably. The email app no longer uses as much cpu resources (uses very little cpu time) and either no longer comes up on the battery use menu or stays at the bottom of the screen. That's a huge difference.

    I didn't notice the behavior before the DI07 update, and I have not checked it since going to DI18, so I don't know if the updates caused an issue.

    And my email is setup to sync with my companies exchange server.

    Have you checked to see which is better for you?

    It doesn't hurt to compare the two to see which one will work better.
