Default email ?s from a first-time Pearl/BB user

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone. Great forum I seem to have stumbled upon. I've never had a BB before and only just got a Pearl a few days ago after finally listening to my wife who thought I'd dig it. She's an 8700g user but I didn't like the size of that so I went for the Pearl.

Anyway, I've done a lot of browsing but have a couple of questions. Actually I have a zillion questions but I figure more reading will solve some of those.

So, here goes goes. I've read that people seem to get emails quicker if they have them forwarded from an existing account to their BB email address. If this is true, then here's my question. I have at the moment set up a pre-existing email account on my BB (is this what is meant by 'push' email?). If I were to have this forwarded to my BB address instead then each time I replied to emails wouldn't people who then replied back to me be emailing my BB email account? Does that make sense?

Now a question on gmail. If I set up the gmail app on my BB is it just like going to and checking email or does it come automatically to my BB? I don't want my gmail to be automatically retrieved.

Sorry if I'm being ignorant but when it comes to BB use I guess I am.
