1. Push email - I have 2 gmail accounts. One of them allows me to have the sync "as mail arrives" which I assume means push. Other account only allows me to do "every 15 minutes" as shortest interval. How do I make all my gmail inboxes push?
2. Search in email - it only searches the cached emails from past several days! How do I get it to search all of my gmail history, for example if I wanted to dig up an old email? I don't want to want to have to sync my entire email inbox (thousands of messages).

#1: i believe it will only allow one Gmail to sync as items arrive.
#2: for some reason it will only load the last 30 days of email. This is for Windows Phone 7, make sure you say you want email from "anytime" in settings.

Also, only setting one account to push isn't correct! Even if I set "account A" to "every 15 minutes," I can't set "account B" to sync "as mail arrives"!

I have my regular Gmail and my school email (powered by Gmail) both set to push. I don't know if the different domain would affect rdubmu's suggestion, but it wouldn't appear to be correct in that two Gmail accounts can't be set to push. That seems like a stupid constraint anyway.

Also, if someone can report on whether there are any adverse effects to having the ENTIRE inbox downloaded, please let me know.

Solved it! If you set the gmail account to sync "email only," then you can't turn push on. If you sync "email+contacts+calendar" then the option to sync "as email arrives" appears!
Now about be able to search emails from the past instead of just the most recent ones....does anyone else have experience syncing entire mailboxes?
