well my question is:
Exist a really app for push e-mail??? I don
For your G-Mail or what?
Yahoo ( 2X )
The best way I have found of doing it is to use my gmail as a sort of Outlook for all the other emails.
You can go into the settings in your gmail on a PC and add all your other emails into it.
The gmail then sends a confirmation mail to the other mails you have set up.
Then you log on to each mail and set it up to automatically forward to your gmail address.
You can then set gmail to reply using the address that forwarded it originally.
I use this for my hotmail and I have set my hotmail to NOT leave a copy in the original inbox only in the gmail inbox where it has forwarded to.
Then within gmail I have set up filters so that each email address that forwards mail does so into its own folder within gmail so that it has its own inbox.
It makes my hotmail into a push mail and also to be able to use the gmail app which is the best app for displaying mail in its correct format.
I hope that was clear enough.
Am I correct in thinking that you must actually login to your Hotmail account every so often, otherwise it'll get deleted?
when i set my hotmail to forward mail it warned me that i may have to log in within about 250 days or my account may expire but my gmail uses the hotmail servers to reply with so this may keep it active. I don't know what other email providers policies are with regards to expiry time.
Hotmail supposedly supports ActiveSync. I don't think the others do.
hotmail does support ActiveSync but not on Android YET!
I'm not sure what that means. My DInc has ActiveSync on it.
Android has ActiveSync which works with other providers but not with hotmail yet. Hotmail are still tweaking ActiveSync to work properly with Android.
It's funny, if I were to recommend a free email provider, the last three on my list would be:
...and maybe even in that order. Switch to gmail.com!
Now that I think about it thanks to aminaked.
You could do it with a workaround.
1. Create a Gmail account
2. Let your other accounts automatically forward to your Gmail.
3. Use Gmail on your Android phone for push emails.
4. Create filters and labels to auto-sort mails from different accounts.
You can set them to forward to your gmail, or you can set gmail to pull the email over using POP.
I couldn't find a way to forward my wifes AOL email she insists she keeps so I just had gmail pull it into its account.
Changing your email address isn't such a bad experience, especially when you're leaving behind a not so good service provider and spam. It's easy to do. Email everyone in your address book about your new address. That should take care of all of the humans that email you. As for businesses/mail lists, just monitor your old account for several months and slowly notify any businesses/lists you want email from. It's a great opportunity to leave spam behind.
Why in the world would you want to POP your gmail from your phone when you can set it up to be pushed?
He meant set up GMail to pull via POP from the other accounts, not GMail via POP on our phones...
I use MobileMe with K-9 Mail. Works very well... K-9 had a few growing pains over the summer but the recent builds have worked excellent for me.
This is how I got my Yahoo to push to my incredible. Don't know if it will work with Hotmail or AOL. Works for Yahoo great and don't need to pay $!
