Hi there

Looking for advice on a handset to use mainly via wifi at home on which I can run Skype as well as push emails.

Don;t want to spend more than $350. So far, I like the Nokia E63 but I am unsure if it is can run both email and skype at the same time.

Any ideas of other mobiles or perhaps a different device?

Look forward to your response.

Yep, my Nokia N95 uses Nokia Messaging Email for push email, and there's an official Symbian Skype client. Both are open on my phone right now and work fine.

It's when you try and run Google Maps and 4 other apps at the same time as Nokia Email and Skype, the Nokia starts to complain about not having enough memory. Maybe I need a more powerful phone...

I'm running skype on an E63 and it works well with other apps. As mentioned above watch how many apps you have open or you can get complaints about free memory.
