I use My Phone but it is a backup service.
It will backup your contact,texts,calender,rask,photo,video,music,docu ments and even your storage card. Works Awesome.
As for the poster, I would recommend Gmail and set it up using IMAP, it is close enough to exchange

I use Live Domains. Free mail hosting and instant sync with the Windows Live app, like Exchange.

I am in the same boat as you, I am actually considering upgrading to the $5/month plan because it has work so well. Last time I used gmail ages ago it was a battery drain, not sure if it still is or not.

Re: No more free Mail2web...what to do?

I just forward all mail to a @live.com address and have Windows Live push setup. Google will sync calendar and contacts with activesync. It's not as convenient to get new mail in hotmail and then open up whatever email it was forwarded from, send/receive, and then reply....but it works and is free.

Re: No more free Mail2web...what to do?

I had thought about paying the $4.95 monthly but I need two account $9.00 for a service that has late and spotty service(at least for me) but it was FREE.

Okay I have gmail...so how do I set up IMAP and does it work good?

No problems here with Gmail.... I usually have mine set to sync every 60 minutes... but you can use IMapPusher to get nearly instantaneous emails.

I also use Google to sync calendar and contacts with via ActiveSync.

Re: No more free Mail2web...what to do?

SEVEN mail is a pretty good push solution too. It sends a hidden text to you when an email arrives to the server, and your phone will poll the server to retrieve it, and it's free.

Just add a new account. Instructions are at Gmail's help site.
