    Does the Pre have push email for any email clients out there? or are they all set to pull email every 15 minutes or so?

    It does have push.
    Obviously your email client has to support though.

    I have only tried gmail, hotmail, and live email accounts and only google supports push/imap.
    I have yet to try my yahoo or aol accounts.
    My college email which is on a microsoft exchange server just like jaytee said also supports it.

    The e-mail client that comes with the Pre supports push as long as the e-mail service provider does.

    Examples: Google's GMail, Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo, or any IMAP e-mail provider that supports the IDLE protocol (the IMAP method of push e-mail).

    Many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer e-mail as part of their service (for example Verizon FiOS), but some of them only offer POP3 e-mail which does NOT support push capability. If you want push e-mail you need to either use an Exchange e-mail provider or an IMAP IDLE e-mail provider (like GMail, Fastmail, etc.)

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    My main email is hotmail, So I guess I am SOL there? I know they just changed hotmail the other day, but I am not sure what that was all about.

    I don't use Hotmail (Windows Live), so I can't tell you whether or not it works, but the Pre has settings for a lot of the popular services. For Yahoo, Palm set up a proxy IMAP server to provide the push e-mail capability. They may have done something similar for Hotmail. I suggest you try it and see. Or perhaps someone else that uses Hotmail can chime in and let us know.

    I also have hotmail. I set up a gmail account and have a copy of all hotmail emails sent to the gmail account. That way I can use the push technology. Of course, I have to delete emails from both accounts at some point.

    I did the same thing and it works great, there is an option where it will not save copies of the emails that get forwarded which I use, just so I don't have to go in and delete them out. Since they are getting forwarded, figure I don't need a duplicate one. It has really made the email situation so much easier getting it funneled through GMail.
