An Alternative Push E-mail for Windows Mobile

An Alternative Push E-mail for Windows Mobile
A clever piece of software allows Pocket PC Phone Edition devices to receive notifications of new e-mails via SMS and then pull them off of an e-mail server.

PushMail was written to allow users to be able to receive e-mails over the air, even without a more sophisticated infrastructure provided by a Microsoft Exchange Server.

The software relies on the user mailbox's ability to send or forward a message to a SMS gateway when a new e-mail arrives.

PushMail hooks into the SMS queue and is notified when a new SMS arrives. This will cause it to analyse the SMS and if it matches the configured sender's id then it will perform a Send/Receive operation.

This is transparent to the user, and the application doesn't actually has to be running, since the native component will instantiate it when a SMS notification arrives.
