    The owner of our company wants a 6600.

    She uses Hotmail though. I have yahoo which allows you to set up as pop3 and allows forwarding. So anyone use hotmail to use wireless sync to get your email through the https://www2.wirelesssync.vzw.com/en/logon.asp
    site.

    Hopefully some of you have a better way to do this then I know of.
    Thanks

    does G mail work great with the wireless sync?

    Does Gmail give you all of the setting to put in to your 6600 for email?.

    isnt it free?


    Thanks
    Thanks

    Gmail works great, drop me a pm and I can invite you to gmail or her. Make sure you include the email address to send the gmail invite. I got tons of gmail invites (50+)

    incoming is pop.gmail.com
    outgoing is smtp.gmail.com

    I haven't ever emailed out with it, so I don't know the specific settings for SSL, etc.

    But it definitely works for incoming.

    Use smtp.vzwmail.com instead.

    I believe the outgoing is

    smtp.gmail.com:465

    Also I had to change pop access to

    Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on

    otherwise I was not able to connect. Anyone else get around this?

    I love gmail on my 6601. Every so often I have to go reset it to "only from now on", but otherwise it works well

    Service name :other
    email server address:pop.gmail.com
    username:username@gmail.com
    password:*****
    email address:username@gmail.com

    off course i replace username with my reall account name. For some reason, i can't access it. I enable pop on my gmail account. I know it work beacuse i use it on my outlook express.

    g35mt from what it looks like you are setting up on wireless sync. The settings talked about here are for direct pop access from the device itself.

    I have not been able to get wireless sync to work. There is an advanced tab where you can put the 995 port but I didn't see anywhere to setup secure connections which gmail needs.

    Ivan,

    Thanks. you are right, i thought it was wireless sync. my bad.

    Hope verizon fixed that wireless sync. It actually is pretty neat feature. Not as great as black berry.

    Get the beta for pocket msn and be able to sync your hotmail account with your pocket outlook.

    PS: The service is free for a period of time, and eventually you will be charged for it, so they do make you sign up for a mobile.msn.com account...

    It seems there is no clean way to use hotmail with wireless sync.

    You could do something like setup outlook on an always on computer to access email through th http webdav protocol, then use desktop monitor to watch outlook. I haven't tried it. Also from reading on the board the http webdav access to hotmail is going away. You might have to upgrade to hotmail plus to keep accessing your email with outlook.

    I agree with everyone else here, go somewhere else. Yahoo works quite well with wireless sync if you pay the extra for a pop account. Or go to gmail which is free. Doesn't seem to work with wireless sync but does work with direct pop access from the device.

    I noted this elsewhere, but thought I'd also mention it here...

    I wanted to be able to use Pocket Outlook (or any other _mail_ program) to read my Hotmail account and was able to find a utility called HTTPMail Provider that acts as an add-on to Pocket Outlook. It allows a Hotmail user to download his/her e-mails through the Pocket Outlook program, rather than having to log into MSN Mobile.

    I found it at PocketGear at the web site:
    http://www.pocketgear.com/software_detail.asp?id=9539

    Its a free trial, then less than $7 for registration. Works well for me (even let me d/l all of the files I have in other folders through a "synchronize folders" function.

    My only caution is to follow the installation instructions exactly as you fnd them on the PocketGear site. You won't be using a "real" web address for the POP/SMTP servers, only the word Hotmail. Otherwise, I had no problems.

    I don't know if this is any help for you, but I'm now easily able to sync up my entire Hotmail account via Verizon's EVDO service without having to go to the MSN Mobile WAP site.

    I've read, and re-read this thread, and I still can not get GMAIL to "send emails" on my 6600, using Pocket Outlook. I can login via the Pocket Internet Explorer browser, but who wants to login everytime, if I can have pocket Outlook handle authentication, and PUSH emails to my phone as they arrive?!

    If anyone has had success with this, PLEASE ADVISE... as getting GMAIL pushed to my 6600 is the reason I bought this phone.

    Cheers,
