    Earlier this week my Windows Live mail mobile stopped working on my treo 700wx. Several very nice people at Microsoft have tried to help me fix this problem but to no avail. I've decided that if I still can't sync my inbox by Monday, after 7 years I'm going to give up my hotmail account. So what is the best, most reliable option for personal email on the treo? I got very spoiled having push capabilities through windows live. I was going to go with gmail, but I just read on here that messages have gotten lost/not sent. I'd really appreciate some input. Thanks!

    Personally, I use my own email account provided by my Cable company. I set up my Treo to download the messages. Granted with my Cable operator I have to use my phone company's servers to send, but it works best for me. IT wasn't all that hard to setp either.

    I don't recommend using an isps email account as a primary. if you ever move, change providers, or the company gets bought you are screwed.

    Gmail imo is hands down the best out there.

    Depends on what you're looking to spend, really.

    I think the easiest thing would be get a gmail account (free) and then get the $1.99 mail2web plan. You then set up mail2web to display your gmail address as the "from" address, and forward your gmail to the mail2web.com address. It's a cheap and simple push solution. Not sure what free push cheapa55 was referring to (emoze?).

    I personally have my own domain and have my POP account forward to mail2web. The nice thing about it is no matter what happens, I'll always keep my email address (as long as I keep paying for the server/domain). I do agree, however, that gmail is awesome.

    Exact same setup here, gmail forwarding to Mail2Web $1.99 Exchange account with push. Best thing about it if you need to hard reset your phone all your calendar, contacts, tasks, and emails will flood right back to your phone once you reconnect it to the server.

    If you don't want to use mail2web, you can go with 1and1 exchange hosting @$6.99/mo. You can register a domain with 1and1 cheap as well and set your exchange hosting up under it. You get a copy of Outlook, get OWA as well as activesync. My wife uses them for her exchange mail as she needs a reliable provider for her business. I use their web hosting services.

    I'll second 1&1 offering... reliable and solid email hosting. Mail2web has had a couple of issues from time to time, although nothing major far as I can remember.

    Everyone.net provides solid and reliable email as well, but no push, everything is IMAP. EV.net has personal mail hosting which provides 5 mail boxes for $35 a year... good deal IMO due to the filters which do a fairly decent job of keeping spam out... although, I think every is trying to get ahold of how to deal with this recent pdf spam......

    As a gift for my girlfriend, i set her up with a new pdaphone and pushmail. Mail2web has a free exchange webmail service with mobile activesync and push. she's got gmail as well, so she forwards gmail to mail2web and gets all of her email almost instantly on her phone.
    If you can deal with no outlook integration and only webmail, the free mail2web works well.
    I personally have 4smartphone and that works very well for me. it's not 2 dollars a month, but i like knowing you get what you pay for. i've never had any trouble with it in the last 2 years. I have my own domain name so i don't have to worry about being so-and-so@someone-else.com

    I do my own web hosting of my own domain. I set up an email address that I give out to every one and then have my mail server send all incoming mail to my laptop email account and my pds phone account. Then I use PushEffect for the push e-mail. I get my mail in seconds on my Treo and a few minutes after than on my laptop. Works great and was very easy to set up.

    I just POP my gmail every 15 minutes. The think I love most about using gmail through POP is that all the mail I send from my Treo gets saved as sent mail on my gmail. My Yahoo account never did that

    You might have imap, which is "push-like" email... but BB and exchange accounts for "true push" are not free.
