You can for Calendar alerts, but not specifically for emails.

You could always set up POP3/IMAP access on your gmail then use that through your phone's mail application (assuming a 3G phone of course)

While you access it, you may be paying mobile data. So it is not free. If you are not at home or not a free wifi area or not at a hotel, wifi wouldn't be free either.
