    Does anyone know the differences between Exchange "Push Mail" vs Microsoft Live "Push Mail"? It looks like ever since I set up Microsoft Live to push my hotmail account I am getting considerably worse battery live because i am keeping a constant data connection. I never had this problem on my 700wx pushing my mail2web account.

    I'm not an expert on Push mail, but I think the way Live Push Mail works is way different from Exchange Direct Push works.

    I'm assuming Live Push Mail works by mainting a constant, active data connection, which eat your battery very quickly.

    Exchange push mail, I believe works by having an inactive connection to the Exchange server. when the server detects a change (new contact, new email, etc), it pings your phone's IP address, and only then does your phone's data connection become active, which prevents unnecessary data usage.

    When you were using mail2web, you were using Exchange Difect Push, which is easier on the battery than the Windows Live Push Mail.

    From my experience with Live Mail push on both the 700 and now 800, it does not keep an "open, constant data connection". Whether it is the same technology as implemented through exchange I do not know...

    live push mail was keeping an open active connection on my 800 as well, 3.5 hour charge time max. since I disabled it, it's been much better and the connection will go dormant

    Well I am going to try a day without MS Live and see if that helps my battery, if not I am going to follow up with Microsoft or Palm

    How would this push email service here http://www.seven.com work? Would SEVEN drain your battery less then having IMAP for Gmail check for new email every 5 minutes?

    That is strange...I have been running push live mail all week ever since I picked up my 800 and it does not keep an "active" connection. It should keep an open connection that is dormant until pushed. My battery is lasting all day with live push running.
