    OK, so what's the deal with Yahoo Mail Plus?!
    http://mailplus.mail.yahoo.com/help

    If I read the description right, In order for us to access our Yahoo e-mail (POP3) account on our Treos using SnapperMail (or other e-mail client) we have to Pay Yahoo $19.99 a year for the privlege? If so, that's a major turn-off, especially since, as a given, we'll have to pay for the SnapperMail program itself. Having to double dip makes it sound like...a mild form of extortion, if indeed that is the case.

    Yes, I presently use the Yahoo Mobile (via Sprint PCS Vision) to check my e-mail, but you cant view e-mails in HTML--or attachemnts for that matter. I'm also gradually weaning myself away from my laptop and Internet cafes--so using SnapperMail's free 30-day trial is a good way to test the waters.

    If there are other ways around Yahoo Mail Plus (i.e., I have a Gmail account), please post your thoughts here!

    I don't think it's a double dip. Think this way, you paid for your TV set, but you still need to pay cable/satellite company for their service. Right?

    If yahoo e-mail address is your main account, you do need to pay that $20/yr for either POP or forward (to gmail, in your case).

    Forgot to mention, you can check fusemail. Their free account gives one choice, yahoo or hotmail. But I hate their ads and I don't see any point to upgrade. Just my 0.02

    Thanks for the tips! I'm guessing yes based on your responses, but will Snapper Mail work with Gmail?

    I hoping Gmail will use folders like most Web-based e-mail programs do...I still haven't gotten used to their e-mail thread ("conversation") set-up. The only way I could consider switching to strictly Gmail is being able to port my Yahoo e-mail folders AND e-mails to my Gmail account. If that means doing it the old fashioned way by e-mail forwading, so be it.

    Ironically, just the other day I got an e-mail from Google (via my Yahoo account) asking me if I want to get a free Google e-mail account. (Ironic because I laready have an account!) BTW, I have about 6 or 7 Gmail invites in case anyone is interested...

    I'm thinking once more people port to Gmail (as it comes out of beta mode and becomes more accessible), Yahoo will rethink it's policy on Yahoo Mail Plus! But, by then--in theory--it might be too late.

    OK, I'm getting closer! I just found out Snapper DOES work with Gmail. Using this Snapper Website, I got to configure my Gmail pop and smtp servers:
    http://www.snappermail.com/support/isp.cfm#82

    After entering the info, I got to SUCESSFULY SEND Gmail e-mails via Snapper. Woo-hoo! That said, I can't seem to RECEIVE any Gmail e-mails. At least I'm halfway there. (Take that, Yahoo!)

    I believe entering my POP3 Gmail server info needs more tweaking in order for me to get e-mails, as my connection log states: "...Failed to authorize to POP account on account 'KevinTurnerGmail.' Server replied- ERR [SYS/PERM] your account is not enabled for POP access. Please visit your Gmail settings page and enable your account for POP access."

    This is what I currently have for my Gmail POP, as was recomended by the
    Snapper Web page, so I'm wondering why I'm still having problems:

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    In your SnapperMail server account settings (Menu | Options | Edit Accounts | (choose account) | Server), enter the following:

    POP3 Server: pop.gmail.com
    Username: your full GMail email address
    Password: your GMail password

    IMPORTANT: Tap the "More" button at the bottom of the screen.

    For POP3 Settings:
    - Set the "Use SSL" dropdown to "Always Secure (wrapped port)"
    - Use Port 995 (this port number should automatically be set when you select the SSL option listed on the line above)
    - Leave the other checkboxes unchecked.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    ll reading the rest of the manual tonight, as well as checking out Gmail's page for more info. I'll post my results once I figure it out.

    P.S. I saw the following TC threads that discussed gmail with Snapper:

    Woo-hoo! I got to finally got to RECEIVE my Gmail e-mails via Snapper. For people trying to do this, you must let ("ask permisssion") the Gmail Website know you are doing this:
    http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/...y?answer=13273 and
    http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/...y?answer=13287

    Cheers,
    Kevin

    P.S. With all these posts on SnapperMail people have been posting through the years, Treo Central should add a separate section on Snapper, alongside the rest of the sections (Treo 600 discusssion, etc.) found on the main Treo Central discussion page.
