    Does anyone know of a way to get notification of new e-mails? I use Gmail but not through my versamail. is there a way to get a text message or something when a new mail comes in? Something similar to the way a blackberry notifies you when an e-mail comes in?

    I dont wanna pay for chatter or snapper, and Versamail is a joke.

    You can have gmail forward a message to your sms #. It is under forwarding in the gmail interface- your10digitnumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com for sprint users.

    Keep in mind- you will be charged for the sms.

    Another option is to have gmail forward to your sprint account- sprint has the ability to notify you of new messages. A charge is not assesed for messages sent rhough sprint. Then you can choose to poll from either pop.sprintpcs.com or pop.gmail.com. I chose sprint because of the way gmail has tendancy to treat sent messages as newly received.

    It is worth every penny to buy chatteremail. The program is phenomenal, support is the best I have seen. And I am not affiliated in any way with it. I will notify of gmail.

    I second rcyphermd's opinion of chatter, it is vastly superior to anything else I've tried. I love the summary view, very useful if you have mutliple email accounts to check.

    Same her I used them all, VersaCrap is crap, SnapperMail is good(long time user) now I'm with ChatterEmail, such an outstanding app & support. Marc does wonders with Chatter, worth every penny.

    I have this set up for my gmail account right now. (forwarding to xxx-xxx-xxxx@tmomail.net) However, when I receive the notification on my 650, it always says I have a new "media message". I used to have my phone set to automatically collect incoming MMS, but now I'm afraid to do so because I don't want to get charged $.25/msg. Now when I have the "auto collect MMS" option turned off, I now only receive the subject line, which acts as the perfect gmail notifier, because i can then hop on to http://m.gmail.com to read the msg in its entirety. Does anyone know if having gmail forward emails to your phone in this fashion is actually incurring the MMS fee?

    Good question for t-mobile. I would imagine that is exactly why you can turn off the auto collect feature.

    The way I get an SMS from GMail is forward the gmail to yahoo mail. Then setup yahoo alerts to notify my phone a message when a mail arrives (can filter which messages cause a notify). This doesn't forward the whole message, it just contains the subject, who it is from and the first line or so of the message.

    Yahoo alerts:

    http://beta.alerts.yahoo.com

    Kind of a pain (have to login to yahoo every once in a while so yahoo doesn't cancel the account), but is free and works pretty good. And can setup filters to filter out any messages you do not want an SMS for (And send to trash after sending the alert).

    I am hoping gmail eventually does something similar.

    Thanks for the suggestion, just set up the yahoo alert for my gmail and it worked flawlessly. We'll see what the "Real World" consequences are latter today during a workday

    This does seem like an interesting way to make a push account. My one question is what happens to the mail in Gmail when it is forwarded? E.g. does a copy stay in Gmail (unread even?) as well as a copy is forwared to Yahoo or does it remove the message after it is forwarded, leaving no trace in Gmail.

    The only reason I ask is I'm trying out chatter right now and I like how it leaves the message "untouched" on my gmail account (it will be "read" on the device, "unread" on the server) and I like to still access my normal Gmail account when I'm at a computer with nothing missing or changed...

    Not sure if any of that was clear, lol...

    Mail is untouched in GMail... A copy is just forwarded to Yahoo, to cause the alert. Just kind of "using" yahoo for the alerts without having to use their web mail. Like stated above they might start charging for this, but it has been in beta and free for over a year.

    And since the alert doesn't send the full message/attachments, I think that is the reason it is considered an SMS message and not a media (MMS) message.

    I didn't think you could check OWA on chatter.

    Fantastic! Hmmm...now I have to decide if I want to go this route (free and easy) or continue using Chatter (more expensive, but it does work very well!).

    Anyways it's great to know at least I have options.
    --------------------------
    RedDevil, re: Chatter and OWA: the developer of Chatter was working with another company on a plugin that allowed one to use Chatter to check their OWA account. The plugin was in beta testing and seemed to work for 90% of the users. However there was a falling out between the two companies, reslutling in the beta being pulled and the project suspended but which may have been mended recently.

    Last I heard the beta may be back for testing in a couple of weeks. Anyone else confirm what I just said is correct?

    So from what I see you only want a sms message and not the actually email. It would be simplier to just forward the email to the primary email account you use. That way all of you messages "includeing" gmail will be downloaded.

    Also I know of a free yahoo pop access program. It's call ypop. It gives you free pop access to you yahoo email. Search google for ypop
