IMAP IDLE is currently not enabled in North america for the bis. It was for a short time last summer, but had a few major issues.
If your GMAIL account is setup as imap, then you are not getting push email.
If you just integrate it using your email address/password, it integrates using a push based service that google and RIM have deployed. Same with yahoo, and other small business accounts (Godaddy hosted).
You used to be able to get push email using Mail connector for Exchange, but that of course is no more.
