Is the only way to push/sync emails that I downloaded to my ISP email on my iPhone, to Outlook on my PC, using MobileMe or Exchange (which I understand is used by companies)?

Surely there must be another way?

There are two main push email standards - BES (Blackberry) and ActiceSync (Exchange server).

The iPhone now supports ActiveSync which isn't just a business product, I use a hosted exchange solution for my personal email and know plenty of other people that do as well.

As for "other ways" you can use pop or imap but these are not push email solutions.

OK I don't really dont understand the different standards (I know what POP etc is tho).

I just want it so that when I grab emails from some hosted email addresses (using my own domains and a cpanel server) onto my iPhone, that they are then transferred automaticallly somehow to Outlook on my PC when I connect my iPhone.

It was easy using my HTC and ActiceSync, but iPhone doesn't appear to support Activesync because its MacOS?
