    OK, done.

    This sounds sexy! So can someone clarify:
    1) I buy Chatter
    2) Signup for FastMail IMAP account
    3) Enter GMail settings and whatnot
    4) Enjoy BB-esque "push" email? Yes or no?
    I may want to roll this out in a DoD enviroment (non-mission critical).
    The Navy is facing massive cuts and recently outlawed the use of CrackBerry's on ships and shore installations.
    Thanks!

    Does anyone uses Gmail with versamail. And if so how does it works for you. Do you get a stable connection all the time when attempting to "get" email from Gmail through versamail.

    Im actually using my GMAIL smtp server for sending out emails. The only reason why Im using fastmail as a "middleman" so-to-speak is for the IMAP push capabilties for my inbox, and this feature is free. This is not needed when sending out emails.

    Theyve also prohibited the use of crackberrys on the Parliament floor in England. Too many of the politicians in the House of Commons were using it during debates. RIM has a real good thing going for them right now... too bad the "push" technology that they are founded on is currently in the midst of litigation for SIX patent infringements!! I knew something wasnt right when i found out BlackBerry's came from Canada .

    Anyway, to respond to your question Jack, yes fastmail and GMAIL will provide you with the "push" email you desire (assuming you have chatter installed already). Ive been using it for a week now and am 100% satisifed with the results. Just make sure you enable the forwarding feature on your GMAIL account to send emails directly to the fastmail account and thats it. By the way, you dont need to pay for fastmail either to have mail sent out through chatter. Just input the proper SMTP settings for GMAIL into your chatter SMTP account.

    Our company uses GoodLink. If you have an Exchange environment, this software gives you everything you need from Outlook: Email/Calendar/Contacts.

    While it's been discussed before ... it is a memory hog, but if all you need is a cell phone with real push tech, it's beautiful. The only time I actually use a sync cable is to install apps (and then only because my bluetooth connection is slow).

    And version 4.0 (due in the next couple of weeks) will make it so you can push third-party apps over the air as well. 4.0 memory footprint is also slightly smaller than 3.8.

    While emails are forwarded from one's Gmail account to their fastmail account (and then subsequently pushed to their Treo), does Gmail keep a copy or "record" of the emails forwarded to fastmail? If so, can these emails somehow be marked as "read" on your Gmail account when you read them off of your Treo?

    My concern is that email may not always be checked on the Treo and there will be many times (eg when attachments arrive to you Gmail account) when you need to access your Gmail account online. It would be great if a mechanism existed whereby the Treo's representation of your Gmail account is synched with your actual Gmail account. make sense?

    For the moment, remote calendar sync is more important than push email. But both would be really great and I would pay for it (one time) happily.
    What Calendar is Versamail Syncing with???

    I have no brand preference, but some of you might be interested in trying fusemail.com. Very powerful spam filtering, sucks in Hotmail, Yahoo, IMAP and POP3 mail for you, supports IMAP IDLE... works wonderfully with Chatter Email.

    I was fustrated with buggy Versamail crashing my Treo, and looked around, and Chattermail was what I found. Snapper mail didn't seem much different in operation to Versamail (although it may be less buggy).

    Anyway, if you have a decent data plan, and an IMAP email account, go and check out Chatter Email. www.chatteremail.com

    I have no idea why PalmOne have not bought this software up. The carriers could do a $10 option on your monthly cell plan, and give you full PUSH email.

    Versamail is nice, except for the fact that is totally unsable because it resets the phone. Oddly I didn't have this problem with the Sprint 650.

    As for battery. It does drain but it is acceptable if what you need is real time email. As someone else mentioned, 16 hours heavy ususage is pretty typical.

    Verizon has one too.

    I've subcribed to Seven but never used it. I'd like to read a comparison.

    Just in case anyone is interested...

    I use Chattermail on my Sprint Treo 650. I singed up for an account at Fusemail.com. There I can aggregate all my email accounts: work, gmail, comcast, etc. into one email inbox. Fusemail will ping these other email servers more as you use it more. I have Thunderbird on my desktop constantly pinging the fusemail server and chatter on my Treo always on to get pushes from Fusemail. most of the time, Chattermail picks up the messages before Thunderbird. There are some costs associated with Fusemail, but it works very well and was easy to set up. I like easy.

    TheTruth, you can set chatter to have sleep time, is that what you require. I tell it to go to sleep between midnight and 7am, so I won't get any email notifications then. That might help your backup problem.

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one using this. I still think PalmOne are silly for not snapping it up...
