Hi all,

Im really really impressed with my t-mob - uk Kaiser.

Ive been wanting push mail for ages now and now that im eventually off Orange with the crappy data tarrif i can probably afford the bandwith Lol .

I was just wondering how as a home user i can get it running. Is it possible ? I obviously dont have a server or even a spare linux box to run it on so i was just wondering how you do it ?

Possibly emoze could be the way , does anyone have any experience of it ?

Many thanks

If you want the complete experience then rent a mailbox from 4smartphone.com or another hosted exchange provider. Its costs about a fiver a month but you get the complete package.

Otherwise use windows live and get sort of push email.

Mail2Web offer free exchange hosting. 1and1 is flakey.

I use simplymailsolutions.co.uk ... and their service has been fantastic. My phone alerts me to email before the desktop PC does. Plus I have all my email available on the run, diary and contacts. Plus if I dont have my laptop with me, or my phone I can login to Outlook Web Access. I wouldn't be without it now.

Pop3 was good

IMAP4 is far better

Hosted Exchange is the dogs undercarriage.

Exchange is nice, but as noted above, Windows Live Hotmail is a great way to go for free, and without adding any third-party stuff. Just create a free Hotmail account, and forward all your other accounts to it. Then, activate Live Hotmail on your WM phone (or download from MS if you don't have it already: http://www.gowindowslive.com/Mobile/Landin...e/Default.aspx), and select "As new messages arrive" for the delivery schedule under account options. That should give you a very good direct push experience. I believe you can even sync contacts, just like with Exchange.

I use Mail2Web, although only for Calendar and Contacts sync. I've got enough email without getting yet another address.

Exchange Push email really is the mutts nuts, however.
