That is it! Pretty simple.
With Push Email and Mobile Sync:
Mobile Sync eliminates some problems that exist with Regular SMTP.
In short, Mobile Sync provides the same functionality of IMAP+SMTP with:
Remote Wipe (through the Mobile Sync connection) allows you to erase all data on your mobile device remotely. This helps users handle/delete sensitive data in the event your device is stolen or lost.
How Remote Wipe Works: There are parameters to successfully operate Remote Wipe. A device must be on, connected to the Internet, and configured to use Mobile Sync in order to initiate the Wiping process by a pushed command from the Mobile Sync service. The Wipe command will not be received if Mobile Sync is not in communication with the device.
We recommend that you use a Lock Code or Password on your mobile device as a safety measure and general good security practice, This prohibits a thief from immediately disabling its Internet connection or deleting its Mobile sync configuration. We also recommend enabling Push on your device. If Push is not enabled, the Wipe command won't be sent until the device next performs a Sync operation (which may be many minutes later or never, if the device is configured for manual sync).
IMAP IDLE is another way to get push-like updates for email when using an IMAP connection and a device that supports IDLE. Generally speaking:
