    Direct Push email for windows mobile 6.1?

    Are there any programs out there for direct email push for windows mobile 6.1? The one and only thing i really like about blackberry is the emails direct push, i dont really like how with my Q i need to set it to connect every x amount of minutes to search for new emails, was hoping that mobile 6.1 would have it when i get my Saga on monday.

    Thanks.

    does this push effect program you guys speak of automatically push emails right away? so the second it would be in my normal inbox for say gmail it will be on my phone and wont need 5 mins to come through?

    as long as gmail forwards the email promptly....then yes! PE has never failed me but there have been times when gmail and yahoo decided to wait a bit to send it.

    Doesn't PushEffect use text messages in the background? So if you don't have an unlimited text plan, keep an eye on how many texts you are using...

    I thought you set your email (like gmail) to forward all messages to your phone as a text message (ie xxxxxxxxxx@sprintpcs.com) and when your phone received the text message, instead of showing up like a regular text, PushEffect used that as your new mail notification. I could be wrong....

    Well, when I was researching PushEffect, that is how I understood the program worked. Hopefully if someone on here who has used it can confirm or deny what I stated, that would help....

    That's not how it works. When your phone gets the text message, it triggers the email client to connect and download the email.

    OK, but you still have to forward your email to your phone's "text message" email address, right? So if you don't have unlimited texts and you get a lot of email, you could run up your bill.

    Yeah, that was the deal breaker for me. I don't text a lot, so I have the 300 text / month package. Neat concept though.

    I have the unlimited texting to other verizon customers, is that ok? is it considered a verizon text? or an "out of network text"?

    haha good point. so there is no real program that would do it? other than just forwarding my emails to my phones email address?
