Threads mergerd guys
I suppose my confusion is exactly what Exchange ActiveSync is. Would I be able to use it to push email on the droid with a school email address?
Also, when you say that IMAP account simulate push, can you explain what that means? Can it only be set to pull email at certain intervals, or will it constantly sync?
Overall....I'm just trying to find out if the droid can push email from a school email address, or if that is impossible. Thanks!!
Let's try this:
GMail - allows for any @gmail.com address or any domain running Google Apps on it. Any email address setup as a GMail address will push.
IMAP - allows for ANY email address with IMAP enabled on the server. IMAP can only pull from the server based on a schedule on the phone.
Exchange (Corporate) - allows for an email address hosted on an Exchange server. Usually setup in businesses and if you have one you would know about it. Exchange mail can be Push OR Pull depending on your selection. Exchange will also sync your calendar and contacts from the server.
