    I am a frequent looker at Lifehacker.com and today, they posted something that I was looking for. It was a way to implement you iPhone or iPod touch with Gmail directly. I prefer this rather than going through the mail2web.com. Gmail's client is much more efficient. Check it out: HERE

    Hope you enjoy! This was a great help to me and I hope it is the same to you. Good Luck. And if there are any problems when you set it up, they actually sent me an e-mail telling me what I did wrong. How cool is that? And now, I have my contacts and calendar synced with Gmail. You could sync your email too... but I prefer just my calendar and contacts. Good Luck!

    What is the difference between "Push" and "IMAP"?

    it sounds exactly the same, well actually imap seems better...

    can someone clear this up?

    Push means that as soon as you, say, recieve an email, it's instantly sent directly to your iPod/iPhone, without you having to do a thing. You automatically recieve email (or contacts, calendars, etc) without having to check for it.

    IMAP is accessible easily, but you must "fetch" the email yourself, rather then getting it sent to you.

    As far as I can find now, there is not much regarding the push email service with AOL. The only things I can recommend is use GuyBrushT's tutorial for mail2web, switch to Gmail (Best Choice in my opinion) and forward emails, or just stay put. However, I believe the Gmail Client is a lot better and you can pretend like you are sending email from your AOL account. It is packed with so many features. Hope you can make the switch... Good Luck!

    BTW: You have to create a normal account for Gmail from your iPod touch to get email. The website- nuevasync.com does not support email at the moment. Then, you can create another exchange account on your iPod for the contacts and calendar.
