webOS devices will not use WiFi if operating in Direct Push mode (As items arrive). 

If WiFi is on and the device is set to get mail As items arrive (Direct Push mode), it will attempt to use the carrier network to connect. 
However, if the device is registered against the internal IP address of the server, attempts to connect through the carrier network will fail as well.
