    If so, does it use a lot if battery? Reason I ask is I forgot to check my email until a few minutes ago, and missed an email I was supposed to respond too. I know they will push with sync going, but how quick will this kill battery?

    Mine lasts all day, about 14 hours, easily. I have mine set for every hour.

    yeah I leave it to push and doesn't seem to affect battery much... and shouldn't since it "pushed" and not polled

    My primary GMail account is using the push client which doesn't really use any battery. my other GMail account polls using IMAP every 4 hours and my school email polls once a day. I get up at 4AM and usually have over 50% by time I go to bed at 11PM with moderate use.

    In the Gmail app I do not see these settings... I open gmail app, menu, settings.... but no menu option for send and receive.

    If I go to Settings, Data Synchronization, Google and check auto sync and Gmail, will that cause push to work?

    I only see the options you mention in the Mail app.
