    You're absolutely correct. The difference between the two are like night and day. It's like going from a Yugo to a Beemer.

    Seems like Emoze is the real push-mail offering that is the most compatible with different mobile smartphones and email systems. I know in this thread there has been mention of others. But looking at the feature list it did not seem like they have the same capability as Emoze. Are there others that have the same capability and Emoze?

    As this forum is everything Q, I assume that is what you have. The Q runs Windows Mobile OS and the email client built in is best supported by Activesynch and MS Exchange Server. This is the only "real" push email system designed in an integrated fashion end-to-end.

    Products like eMoze more or less hang onto the PC and provide the capability to access your email from the Q. It is not integrated and has flaws. If you read the posts a few up, you will see that it can create serious problems. This just doesn't happen with the Exchange-Activesynch-Outlook set of tools.

    Others that claim "real-time push email" often implement via SMS messaging. Obviously not a designed in method of back end integration. Also, if you don't have an all-you-can-eat SMS plan, the cost will eat YOU. :2cool:

    Nope. I gave up on waiting and started using PushEffect. This works much better than Emoze ever did for me. I guess it should though, PushEffect is not free.

    Took a look at the PushEffect website. Looks like it is a SMS based system. Is this correct?

    I set the specific email SMS for PushEffect. XXXX (4 digit) in the sender area, and y-alerts(at)reply(dot)yahoo(dot)com in the body area. Is your sender and body info exactly the same for email vs stock info when the SMS's come in? I used to have the sender area set with the @ only (as they say you can do), but PushEffect was intercepting some important texts from blahblah@blah.

    I guess if Yahoo sends you the same body info from the same 4digit number for email alerts and stock alerts, your kinda hosed. Your hidden stock alert will check your mail though!!

    Here is the kicker, I don't check Yahoo mail I have Comcast and GMail as my only 2 email clients.

    Not quite sure on your setting info up, if you could PM the details I would appreciate it

    Thanks

    I'm a noob so I'm probably missing something.

    I did the automatic setup but nothing happened so I tried the manual configuration but I get this when I try to configure it myself:

    becuase you have the box email checked under active sync settings it wont pull your email with exchange
    uncheck the box in active sync

    the message is pretty easy to understand i think

    so if you have an exchange server plugged in there is no need to check the email box

    if you dont want exchange server then go in to active sync and remove the server information then check the box

    Also tried Emoze and and gave up. I also didn't like having to leave my PC on all day. PushEffect is great, never a bit of trouble. Very reliable. Works with most of the free web based email. I use it with Gmail IMAP and Fastmail POP for personal and business accounts. Highly recommended. Not free but only a one time nominal charge. It's worth it for reliability.
