    I don't want to use the Gmail app. I want to use the Android mail app. I have Exchange accounts that are set to sync "as items arrive," but with my Google accounts, the best I see is 5 minutes. Is there any way around this? Thanks for any help.

    Also, in the Gmail app, is it even possible to navigate between messages while having one open (forward / previous nav buttons)?

    Also...forgot to add:

    I've read that people are able to enter m.google.com as an Exchange server, but the problem is I already am syncing with another Exchange account. I need to maintain this Exchange account, and still find a way for Gmail to push more frequently than 5 minutes without using the app. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    You can only configure one exchange account in mail app. The only way to get push gmail is to use the gmail app. Otherwise you'll have to configure gmail in the mail app as a pop3 account, which downloads mail every x minutes.
