Hey all,

As I was browsing the forums, I happened to come across THIS thread and immediately felt like . I have been using M2W for quite a while now and was quite pleased with it's Push E-mail capabilities; alas, this is no longer an option. As such, I am looking into other options that would allow me similiar (if not same) capabilities as M2W.

Therefore, I have a few questions that I hope members with experience in the field can assist me with:

SEVEN:

1) Is SEVEN beta a free service?

2) Does SEVEN push as well as (or better than) M2W?

3) Does it create a new e-mail address (i.e. [email protected] or something) or does it push an existing address (i.e. comcast, hotmail, gmail...)?

4) How is the battery drain on the TP when using SEVEN vs. using M2W?

5) What server address, if any, do I need to put into my TP to get SEVEN to push e-mail (i.e. mobile.exchange.mail2web.com for M2W)?

HOTMAIL:

1) Does Hotmail push e-mail by itself, or does it need to be paired up with something else?

2) If it does push, what is the server address I need to put into my TP (i.e. mobile.exchange.mail2web.com for M2W)?

OTHER:

1) Are either of these services "Outlook" services that sync with ActiveSync (once again, like M2W)? I ask this only because I know it works with my TP "flawlessly".

2) If not, then what else do you folks recommend?

Lastly, I wasn't sure if this belonged in the TP forum. If it does not, I apologize in advance and hope a moderator will move it where it belongs.

Thank you all for your time.

WildAce786,

I'll take the "Other" section, Number 2.

I've used Mail2Web before. It was what I first used when I wanted to test true exchange. I loved it. I liked having email pushed straight down to me. I use two devices (two lines with data) and wanted my contacts, email, etc., all pushes quickly and quietly without the need of the cables I have at home. Mail2Web showed me that it was possible. Unfortunately, M2W didn't have HTML. It didn't allow me to use my own e-mail name (As I do now). And, most importantly, I hated not being able to use my local Outlook Client to connect.

Of course, things may have changed since I used them. However, it made me start looking for my own source. I looked at various places, read some reviews, etc., but came to the decision that some of those companies weren't worth the trouble.

Based on my research, 1And1 (a well known internet host, providing services in the US as well as in Germany) has some serious issues with the QoS (Quality of Service). At that time, they were having major outages, losing data, etc. While their rate plan was $6.95, the reliability that comes with that wasn't worth the trouble.

There were two other companies that came into my google searches. Both were very similar, with 1GB of data and $1.00 difference per month. While I was thinking over various things, I decided to go with SherWeb. I figured that SherWeb had the ability for me to use a 100mb SharePoint site (which I've played with twice..no more), 3GB (I think?) of storage for my Exchange Account, and some of the best customer service I've ever had. Over the past.. wow.. year or so, I think? Maybe closer to 8 months.. who knows.. I've had very little in the way of issues. Any maintenance is scheduled and we're made aware of it at least a week in advance.

Overall, I've been very happy with my choice. I currently have two PDA Phones (The Touch Pro / Fuze and the Kaiser / Tytn II / Tilt) actively syncing using my SherWeb Exchange Account. Additionally, I sync with my laptop as well as my desktop. And, if the day ever comes for me to be so bored as to try to set up another client, which I'm sure I will, it'll no doubt work just as smoothly.

Now, back to "SEVEN". From what I've seen, and I haven't done much in the way of reading, SEVEN looks like another Emoze. I did use Emoze at one time, it worked decent, but it couldn't sync two devices simultaniously. That was one of my contributing factors. Battery life on my Tilt with Emoze was extremely good, until the client errored and had some sync issues. A quick message to the developers told me that I had a corrupted db on Emoze and a small file and re-sync would resolve it. Course, after three days with my battery dying for no reason, I was kinda freaking out.. Glad I noticed that, too...

Bah, I'm getting on a rant now.. If theres anything else I can try to help you with, just let me know.

I have always used DR. Morley's service. He is a user in these forums; drmorley. His 1 GB service is 5 bucks a month and I have had no issues at all. Been with this service since November 2008 and not one outtage. Just search him - it's a good deal.
