    Is there a way to set up the HTC Mail app/widget to have gmail pushed to it?

    Per someone's advice in another thread around here, I set up htc mail to treat my gmail acct as an exchange activesync account following these instructions, and it sure seems like push to me (which was the point of the other thread)... the app doesn't seem to poll the server (set it to download mail "As items arrive", and the last sync time doesn't update unless new mail arrives or I choose to sync manually from the menu), but new email arrives on my device super fast (usually within seconds and usually well before the web-based gmail on my computer notices I've got mail). I don't know if it's technically "push" but it sure acts like it and it doesn't seem to be a big battery drain, so I'm sticking with it for now...

    If its set to as items arrive, is that as battery efficient as the gmail app? They dont make it very easy to understand... "as items arrive" could either me constantly refreshing or push...

    Hmm, this is very interesting. So does this setup keep your Gmail in sync? If I delete an e-mail, will it also get deleted in Gmail? Same with marking as unread on the phone. If so I might change my setup.
