If Orange offers a BB dataplan, then email is push. All email on a BB is push for that matter.
I do not recommend using the email address given to you by the carrier. The only way to get the email is via the BB. You do not control it, so if you ever change carriers, that address is gone as is the email sent to it. Plus it there is no SPAM filter associated with that address at RIM.
What one does is set up to 10 email address/accounts in BIS and all email in those accounts is automatically pushed to the BB. Make sure you have "Leave mail on Server" selected however.
I suggest you read the FAQ on here as well. there is much good info there, especially to a BB newbie.
