MSG Push (an alternative to the app in this hint)

This can also be accomplished with, a beta service that let's you push most IMAP accounts. It works by creating an Exchange account on your phone so if you already have an Exchange account this is not for you. They suggest setting up your IMAP account to check manually. When you receive new mail it increases the Mail application's red dot counter, and then opening your imap account's inbox will download your mail. There is a delay while it actually downloads the mail, but you don't have to interact with the MSG account as it removes the new message notifications automatically so you are only interacting with your IMAP account.

You of course must provide them with your password. The service is free now, but I don't know if they will charge in the future. I tried it out right when they launched and their support was very helpful.
