Push .Mac mail in iPhone 2

Users of Apple's .Mac service will be able to get their e-mail pushed to their iPhone or iPod touch, an anonymous source claims. The person writes that in the latest version of the iPhone 2.0 firmware, the Settings page now has a "Fetch New Data" submenu, which lets users toggle the "fetch" or "push" status of various e-mail clients, including standard ones such as Gmail. Within this list is .Mac, giving subscribers the option of having their mail sent as soon as possible, or kept back so it appears as new when on a desktop or notebook Mac.

Subsequent releases of the iPhone SDK have gradually revealed a number of likely or possible features. Some of these have included YouTube support within Safari, GPS navigation, and remote media control. No extra abilities have been confirmed by Apple though, other than third-party applications, and expanded corporate support. This does, however, include at least one form of push e-mail, through Microsoft Exchange servers.
