    I believe that gmail only pushes when using the GMail app - and - you have to have Talk (Gtalk) running.

    So far as I know, nothing pushes to the built-in Mail app.

    The 40 minute wait on a 30 minute poll was probably pathological - meaning - just one of those things so keep an eye on it and not worry unless it becomes a regular occurrence. I've had that happen to me a few times, but otherwise it works according to schedule.

    The Gmail app supports IMAP which is supposed to be push.. So I use K-9 email

    I agree.

    my GMail via the GMail App pushes instantly. I have hotmail via the mail app that (i have set) checks every hour. Both work great. If you got an email 10mins late, i dont think that warrents a problem. Especially if its a Non-push account.
