    any thoughts? i am fed up with outlook imap. i also would like to use push email anyway. i have ms exchange 2003 sp2 so i am probably going to try both it and seven. i guess seven is still in beta tho? i have 8 email accounts i'm not sure how i will set them up. i prob will have to forward them all to the push account. exchange push mail still may not resolve my hanging outlook problems. my dad has a 750w and it always seems to have problems too especially with outbound emails. i just want something thats reliable. i am concerned about battery life too if i get a large volume of emails. any other good alternatives?

    Exchange AS with Push is a true enterprise caliber solution. Seven might integrate multiple accounts a little easier but in terms of reliability there is no comparison.

    You will not have any problems interfacing with exchange through AS as long as it is properly set up. Rock solid. Keep in mind- this is how the phone was designed to handle push email.

    What do you mean via AS? I could care less about syncing emails i just want instant email on my phone when it arrives @ the exchange server. Actaully I dont really even care about instant mail just want someting that initiates a connection to my phone and wont hang it up.

    SEVEN I found to be a battery hog. Maybe it was just me.

    What he means is EAS or exchange active sync which is the protocol that allows exchange to push emails (or sync emails ) to your phone automatically.

    when working correctly i get the email on my treo before it shows on my desktop client. its the best IMOP email for mobile peeps like all of us here.

    Hosted exchange server is the best option if you dont have exchange at work. Google it or even better search here.

    No question in my mind which to do. EAS is as good as blackberry.

    I have used Sherweb over the past year and a half and LOVE the service. You get 3GB of Hosted Exchange (2007) storage for $8.95/mo with true push (EAS).

    I started using sherweb about two months ago.

    I could not agree with you more!

    Exchange + windows mobile + outlook (desktop and laptop) is awesome.

    that seems kind of pricey to me for an email account and I would jsut be forwarding them all to it. I am trying Seven right now, so far its not that bad. I am in process of installing Exchange Server SP2 on one of my servers I might see if I can get my own EAS working for me and my pops.

    I pay $4.95 a month for Microsoft Exchange account through 1and1.com bundle package. No bulky program on my device. Two years now and worth every penny.

    i used to use mail2web which supports EAS its free as long as u dont mind using the @mail2web.com address thing. Its FREE and worth a test drive.
    My office went to outlook and sent out set up guides for our treo's and so far ots faster than sh***t.

    No argument there... it does cost a bit of money. IMO it is worth it though. My biggest thing was sync calendar and contacts automatically... the email was in with the package... but it works great...

    I can see if you only needed the email portion, why you would not care to pay $9 a month for exchange.

    But if you want the best, exchange is the way to go....

    thanks i like this idea since i just need email. I just setup a free mail2web account to check it out. So far so good, this way i can just create multiple accounts and forward from my mailservers.

    is their some way to specify a reply-to address?

    I am going to just use the mail2web EAS account as a notifier, it works great. Each time I tested I got my email within 15 seconds or so. I have forwarded all my accounts to it. This way I reliably get my inbound emails only when I have them instead of polling 7 IMAP accounts constantly (battery killer and hanging my data connection). I also like how I can setup delayed push to save battery life in off hours. I still have my other accounts setup as IMAP in Pocket Outlook so if I need to reply to an email I can just select that account and do a manual send/receive and then reply as necessary. Some of my accounts are for server logs and stuff anyway so I don't ever need to reply.

    This solution works for me. I think I will get my dad setup on this for his one account and I am thinking he will not have as many problems. He also misses the "instant" push mail he had with his blackberry. Now he will have that once again and I beleive better reliability. I just wish I could set a reply-to address for him somehow? It wouldn't work for me with multiple accounts but it would work for him... Is there anyway to set one in Pocket Outlook?

    So I signed up for web2mail.com. How do I setup push mail to my 800w ? Is there a charge for this service?

    Also, can I hook up my Outlook Express on my laptop to this acct?

    do mail2eb live no charge free service but your email will end with @mail2web.com unless you pay to host a domain. this don' matter to me i just forward accounts and get instant notification. i dont like replying on my phone but i setup the imap accounts should i need to.
