    2.) Select your preferred interval for mail check, As items arrive will mean the new messages will arrive at your inbox as soon as your web server has received them:

    Exactly.

    I have no issues to set the sync options for Gmail.

    Any idea why "As items arrive" isn't available? Mine shows "based on usage," manually, and a few time options.

    "As Items Arrive" is only available if you're using Exchange, EAS or I believe IMAP. I noticed on mine, it doesn't show for my linked MSN account (which seems really odd now that I think about it), but does on my personal .coms that use EAS.
