Push mail forces your mail to you as soon as it is sent. Other mail stays on your mail server until you check the mail app.

I have to use Yahoo for work. We have a small businesss account (name@mydomain.com). It is set us as push, but it is not true push like a BB. (there are some threads that will tell you more detail on this). I rcve yahoo fine, but can rarely send from it. My gmail that I use for personal use works really well. If you want to set up mail on your iPhone, I recommend gmail.

I use gmail mainly on my phone simply because of the great spam filter more than anything.
