    Hey guys, I am the proud owner of a new Treo 600, a 212 area code, *and* I'm a lost newbie. I've never had a Treo before, or even a PDA. I have some questions as to how to basically do what I need to do.

    First off, I would like to be able to keep my e-mail around with me. I have about a year's worth of email on my Outlook at any one given time. I can get one of those 1GB SD cards, which I'm sure can hold all that email. How in blazes do I transfer my Outlook e-mail to my Treo? All that my Palm software will sync are my contacts, appointments, etc. But not my e-mail! Do I need to buy special software for this? I was under the impression that the Mail application on my Treo would be able to do this.

    Secondly, I would appreciate being able to occasionally pull mail off an IMAP (or POP) server. I'm on Verizon right now and am resolutely uninterested (being a poor college student) in paying another $25 for a data plan. I read some stuff about EN-MOU and then some other stuff about EN-MOU being discontinued. What is the deal here? Is there any way I can get an occasional email or two off without paying ridiculous data rates or subscribing to a data plan?

    Lastly, the vibrate function is ridiculously weak. I won't even notice it. Is there any way to strengthen it? Like, could I buy another motor and have my EE major buddy solder it on the back or something?

    Thanks!!
