    Traditional email systems like POP and IMAP were not designed with "push" email in mind, so they don't support it. The TouchPad email app retrieves new email from the Inbox folder of every active account at the interval you set (default = 15 minutes), or when you switch to a different folder (like All Mail) in the email app. You get a notification if there is new email in any of the Inbox folders. If you want faster notification, you can cut the checking period to 5 minutes on you most active account.

    All of my IMAP accounts are set to "as arrives" since IMAP can (kind of) push and it works very well.

    All mine are set to as arrives and I get the notification at the top. Mine checks 3 or 4 gmail accounts.
