    You can have the Exchange account and the Gmail account both setup in the Mail app. Not sure how well this works - I keep them separate just because I want them separate.

    I noticed that the EVO version of HTC Mail has new peak and off-peak times and that if I set my peak setting to get "items as they arrive", I don't see the sync icon going on every 5 seconds. That is how the Hero did it and it actually did a pull sync constantly which ate the battery.

    Anyone know if the EVO version has true exchange push capability?

    Yes, it has true Exchange push capability. I turned it off though and sync every 10 minutes instead to save battery life. By default, it uses "As Items Arrive" and you have to change it.

    We use Google Apps Premier at work, so I set up Gmail for my personal email and stuck a bookmark link to my work email on my Home screen. Granted, I don't get notifications of new work emails, but I get so much email at work I prefer it this way actually. lol

    But if it is true push, then battery would be LOTS better than the same setting on the Hero, correct?
