    Hello,

    I just ordered a Treo 800w. I'm looking to receive push email and some sort of automatic sync with my Outlook 2007. Can anybody recommend the best way to accomplish this? Thanks very much.

    Is it a corporate email or does it use Exchange server? One of the selling points for me was how well the 800w syncs with Exchange Activesync out of the box. I use no 3rd part aps. It just "works".

    If you're not using Exchange server I believe you would need to use a hosted email account to achieve true "push" email. I have never used this though.
    Devices used: Palm VIIx - Tungsten T - Tungsten T3 - HP ipaq 4155 - Tungsten T5 - BB 7520 - Treo 650 - Treo 700wx - Treo 755p - Q9c - BB 8130 - Treo 800w - HTC Touch Pro - BB 8330 - BB 8520 - HTC HD2 - Palm Pre

    If you don't have the corp. exchange server, I think you will have to use a third party service. I believe a couple people have mentioned free one's on the board, but i think you have to create an email account with them.

    Here is a list of third party exchange hosting companies where you can use your existing email/outlook info. Fee's vary based on # of accounts, ext. I think you could get by with 1 email account for less than $100 a year with a few of them. See link below:

    Someone else may know of a cheaper service (or free)

    I have a corporate email account but we don't have Exchange, everybody else uses a Blackberry. I don't mind spending about ten dollar per month. I would also like my email to go to my phone when my computer is not on.

    PushEffect was a great product, but they don't seem too helpful in working on the 800w.

    I believe there's a monthly fee for that.

    It is also possible to receive push email if your server supports IMAP IDLE. This is the system that many of us used to receive push email with Palm OS Chattermail. I believe that the best solution for this on WM is Flexmail, although I have not used flexmail myself.

    I used it for my personal and kept seeing a monthly charge, even though I only tried it once.

    I now have Flexmail up and running with GMail and Everyone.net. I did not realize how nice ChatterEmail was with its ability to limit the number of days to sync back to. Syncing 782 messages in the INBOX takes time.

    actually what i like best is the ability to only sync lets say the last 25,50, or 100 emails. regardless how long ago it was.

    Check with you IT guy to see whether your company is using Exchange 2003 SP2 or later. If so, you should be able to use the push mail. Of course you may also ask your IT to help setting up.

    dont sweat it, I use 1and1.com and they provide outlook 2007 html exchange server. You cannot get this on your blackblerry (not yet atleast) and the whole thing costs 7 dollars a month.

    You can do that with FM as well, but you need to configure that in the "server folders" menus for your account before it does the initial sync to avoid it syncing everything after the initial setup.

    I have a FastMail account and Everyone.Net account. I have stuck with the Everyone.Net account as I have yet to be nagged about heavy email usage. Last month I got a reminder from FastMail that I was about 80% from reaching the max and so forth.
