It's in the email app in the sync part of settings. Set it for push (if it's an IMAP account, that'll sync when there's email to sync, the phone won't have to constantly ask the server, wasting battery) or for as long as you want it to wait before checking. Most Android email apps have a little "sync" button (the 2 arrows in a circle) or you pull the email list down to manually sync.

There are two email apps that come with the phone. One if for gmail and the other for POP3, IMAP and Exchange. With that being said I think either will do more.
Gmail app only synch with push with no other option as you have found.
The other email app will allow you to set it as Rukbat has stated.
There are other email apps out there that allow all kinds of customization. K9 Mail is one.
I actually use all three, Gmail, built-in and K9. Each for a different account. Others want al their email in one app and you can do that but with the above stated push limitations.
Good Luck!
