    I thought Palm was going to bring BlackBerry's push e-mail to T650s. When ?

    Snappermail + TreoHelper + SMS Trigger.

    The SMS Trigger isn't really push, but it's close... BTW, in addition to true push, Chatter has SMS-triggered pseudo-push in the program itself (no need for a "helper" app).

    I second this, been using it for some time and it works beatifully. The nice thing about this setup is no need to an email app running 24/7 in the background. I've had no adverse affects using this method. I have though seen several post on here from people claiming chatter+push= dead treo battery.... I can't verify this as I've never used chatter for more than a few moments when testing.

    turbosteve - Push doesn't necessarily use ANY more battery than checking on a schedule; it's very depending on the setup (how many mailboxes, how often mail comes in, etc.) and the phone (GSM vs CDMA).

    Marc's right, however, with an SMS pseudo-push using TreoHelper there is no active/inactive polling of the server. With true push you have to maintain a session with the IMAP server that supports IDLE.

    With SMS + TreoHelper you actually conserve battery because you're only checking/polling when new mail arrives. Coupled with the recent addition of Snappermail's background notification (on the phone application) I use it and have configured Treohelper to only activate Snappermail when the phone is idle/asleep.

    I understand; Chatter has SMS pseudo-push also (though it doesn't require an extra app).

    So what was the fuss about Treos using RIMs technology ?

    Well, Chatter does push of IMAP mail, whereas BB (or Good) does push of Microsoft Exchange mail; most corporate users can't use IMAP, but can use BB, although IMAP is an option on all Exchange servers.

    How come no one mentions Seven Inc's products?

    Aprasad, no one mentions much cause they don't bother to read <-sucks but still does it. DON'T use it!

    RIM was smart to negotiate with Palm whilst this lawsuit was pending...It keeps them alive in the best possible way.
