    Does anyone know of any reliable (and hopefully free) push type Email for the Treo 680?
    I was looking into Morange but they do not have a version for this Palm yet.
    TIA
    Regards,

    Check out http://www.fastmail.fm

    Their service isn't as reliable as it once was. I have been using it for a few years with occasional hiccups. But you get what you pay for

    Are there advertisements or any other padding on the Emails?
    If not, it is 'adware' in any way?
    TIA.

    Check out http://www.fastmail.fm for more info, but here is a snipit:

    Guest
    Sign up now

    10 MB storage space
    40 MB bw/month
    IMAP/Web access
    45 day no activity period
    Taglines on emails
    Unobtrusive ads in web interface


    FREE
    Compare plans

    I forward my primary personal mail account to a fastmail.fm account. I never use the web interface and use a different pop server so my mail appears tag free (both inbound and outbound). But if you were to use this as your primary free service I would expect you to see some spam in there.

    Good luck!

    Seven Mail will be releasing a beta version for PalmOS in a few months, but as of right now no PalmOS. I only say this because if you don't find something that works well, keep this one in mind for the future. It works well on the other devices it supports.
    It basically adds push mail capability for Yahoo, GMail, and frequent delivery of others. http://preview.seven.com/

    Meanwhile chattermail with fastmail.us is the best thing I know on the 680.

    Is there any additional spam to either yourself or those in the Email loop?

    Yes, I have read quite a few good comments on chattermail.

    Not that I have personally seen. Give it a try, the price is right

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I will research the s/w a bit before I install it.
    Until now, I have had the 'can not answer call' problem with my Treo 680. I inserted a business card wafer in the SIM slot and am waiting to see if it solves my problem.
    I really do not want to introduce any third party software until I am sure that the problem is resolved.
    Have you ever had that problem?
    Regards,

    The fastmail free account doesn't get you any spammed emails. Only the tagline adds in the email. As well as ads on the site.
    See:
    http://fastmail.us/pages/fastmail/docs/pricingtbl.html
    Try the free for a little while, if you like it pay the one time $15 membership fee and you'll get rid of the tag line ads as well as increase your storage and mail volume nominally.

    Use http://www.fastmail.us/ from the US.

    For the record, it's basically best IMAP IDLE Push mail capable mail service I've found so far. Regardless of price, it's one of the best in my opinion in terms of performance.

    Is all of the following correct, then?
    My scenario would be to forward my domain email (eg allan@mydomain.com) to the fastmail which would push to the Treo 680 with a tagline.
    If I wanted to reply to the incoming Email, I would manually edit out the incoming tagline.
    So, I assume that the recipient (from my outgoing Email) would see a tagline (with the free version)?
    Regards,

    I have to admit that I am having a conceptual problem.
    Assuming there is no outgoing Email, is there only bandwidth (and battery) usage when an incoming Email is present?
    If so, how does the Treo software know *when* to make the connection to receive the Email being pushed to it?
    Sorrt, if my questions seem very basic but I do not get it
    Regards,

    My web host, Dreamhost, has IMAP idle enabled on all email accounts you create there, which is sweet, but is there a free client like ChatterEmail?

    My 680 hasn't shown up yet (should be here tomorrow - I'm stoked!)... But I am also on Dreamhost and would be interested in the best e-mail client for a push-like experience using IMAP IDLE.

    Why dont you just set up versa mail already on the treo, go into preferences. auto snyc/check autosync and set how often you want it to check mail, you can have it check as quickly as every 5 minutes, then it will be on your treo phone icon when you have new mail

    Down side is it wont vibrate like crackberry with incoming mail

    Yeah, that works well enough, which is why I can't really justify paying for another email client, even though I'm sure ChatterEmail is probably worth it.
    You have an i-what? Never heard of it.

    I use Dreamhost with Chatter and get my emails pushed to me almost instantaneously. Actually, I had communicated with Dreamhost and encouraged them to activate IDLE in order to get Pushed email. One of the guys working with them had a 650 so he was willing to indulge me. After they got it working I signed-up...

    I have also setup my Gmail to be forwarded to a free Fastmail account to get simulated Pushed Gmail using Chatter. See the attached procedure which I compiled for Marc.

    PS
    I do not receive Spam emails using the free Fastmail account.

    I like Mail2Web much better than Fastmail.fm. It's worked very well. I haven't had any problems since they were changing servers and the service was gone for like a week but that was months ago. I forward my Yahoo! Mail to Gmail then forward Gmail to Mail2Web. It's a bit clunky but it's free so I'm not going to complain. Really you don't have to forward your original account to Gmail at all. I only do it because I want to keep a copy of the original messages so I can access them from my desktop.
