    What free alternatives are there? My accounts are gmail so I was forwarding them to my Mail2Web account.

    Thanks

    Wait... they're charging after that date?

    I thought they were just changing some things.
    I received an email a while back and changed my account type to free or something like that. Does that mean I'll have to pay after a while?

    AFAIK the free email service will continue to be free BUT it does not include active sync which is now part of the paid for service.

    I'm testing out forwarding my mail to a Yahoo account because that's supposed to be push, but I'm not convinced that it's working as a push account.

    I'm a little bummed too! I was using this service for the last 2-3 months. Will really miss it. I just hope gmail starts supporting push mail real soon. I don't wanna go for a paid account of mail2web just for activesync.

    . Tried rebooting and deleting and adding the account back in but it's still acting as 'fetch'. Anyone got any ideas or other suggestions?

    Is 'push' going to be part of the firmware upgrade available in the summer?
