    I've searched around google and can't find the answer to this, but I have Outlook on my computer, and I have a pop account from Roadrunner. I want my messages to go to my outlook inbox, but at the same time, I want them to go to my ipod touch too. Is there any free way to do this? So I want the same email to be on my ipod and my outlook at the same time.

    With mail2web you can forward email from other accounts to your mail2web account.

    But if I retrieve the email on my computer, will it still go to my ipod too?

    Yeah I already set that up, but it only updates pop accounts once every hour. Do you have outlook?

    Nevermind I got it. I just had to check a box in Outlook which allowed me to leave the message on the server so I can get it on my iPod too.

    Yes thats how im doing mine right now....im with bigpond (Australia) you will need to find the mail server it runs on e.g mine is mail.bigpond.com (that's for all bigpond clients)...ill send you a screen shot of how to get this:

    1.Open up Outlook
    2. Go To "Tools"
    3. Go Down To Account Settings

    Then Under The E-mail Tab you will see your account (Look At 1st Attachment)Double click on the Account, and a new window will pop up

    Then Look at the 2nd Attachment Everything you see on that pop up is what you need for your ipod's email account set up - ill show you how in Attachment 3

    Now when you click save at the end it might come up with a few messages just click OK or YES all the time...it does take a while so be patient
