    So the Vibrant is my first android phone, and I have a few questions about the stock email app.

    First of all, I like it (the stock email app) a lot better than the Gmail app. The theme, color coding, and combined inbox is great, but I have run into a few problems. I have four email accounts (2 Exchange and 2 Gmail). I can set the two Exchange accounts to push, however the 2 Gmail accounts seem to only be able to pull at timed intervals.

    Am I missing something? Should I just set the two Gmail accounts up manually as Exchange accounts? Would there be any disadvantage to doing so?

    Also, as a side note, it is my understanding that push, as long as you aren't getting a large amount of emails over a small amount of time, saves battery life. Is this true?
