its a free php solution for active sync mail, backend is imap
you may try new horde webmail with "more complete" active sync solution
( this means it basicly http(s) hosted ) also give you addressbook,
calendar etc "with active sync compatible clients" like outlook 2013 etc

"push mail" is more some "buzz wording" then an exact tec description,
for "pure mail", imap clients like android k9 act "push mail", with imap
idle just like the android mail client in exchange mode ( active sync )
for "normal" users

if you want only mail/imap i.e k9 mail imap seems to me the better tec

the "push mail" imap stuff for mobiles is "overnamed" with "imap
lemonade extensions" , some of them are on the road for dovecot or
implemented ( lots of rfcs ), at my last review, but however it may last
some time lemonade clients will get out
