Can anyone recommend some software which would let me get send/receive pop3 emails on my mobile phones?

I have a HTC Tytn and a  Nokia E61

I would like to trial a couple of apps (1 on each phone).  I will probably download a trial of always-on mail from  www.workoutofoffice.com/software/internet_edition, but would still like a second app to trial.

Additionally, Ive never heard of always on mail, so if anyone has  any experience of using it or any good/bad feedback please let me know.

Thanks
alison

Both devices come with built-in POP3 and IMAP clients ready to use.

On Pocket PC you can alsow use the WebIS Flexmail 2007 for extra feature set. For free push email try emoze.

Remember free means there are some drawbacks. For example emoze requires your PC to be always on to redirect the e-mails. You could go for a hosted Exchange server account and get direct push to your inbox with no additional software (all Windows Mobile devices come with this feature). You can have a hosted Exchange from 4Smartphone for example.

Mauricio, thanks for replying :-)   I took your advice and had a look at Emoze but after 24hrs decided to uninstall as I didnt want my pc left on 24hrs a day.

Have since begun trialing always on mail internet editino against my fastmail account and it looks very positive.  I dont mind paying for some software as long as it does what it claims to do and always on mail certainly seems to live up to its claim of being "always-on"!

On a serious note though, I'm quite impressed with it.  My battery life hasnt been too badly affected and its been solid as a rock since I installed it.  When my trial period is up I think I'll be handing over some cash for this.

Nokia's Mail for Exchange (free) and DataViz's RoadSync (free trial) have both impressed me this week with pushing email to my E90 from my hosted exchange account at 1and1. They both appear to work with the E61 also. They both have a way to go with their inbox folder support (DataViz supports it now but it is very limited) but for basic functionality with lots of customisable options they are good solutions.

Scott - how much did you pay for your E90?  I REALLY fancy one of those.

I don't know for sure yet, I'm waiting for the person who brought it's credit card statement to arrive. Retail price in Australia was $AU1487 at Harvey Normans but some bargaining was done and GST was claimed back coming out Australia. I'm expecting it to be in the vicinity of $NZ1500. I see Parallel Imported have put their price back up to $1999, CoolMobile up to $1899 etc etc.

I am very happy I made the decision to buy from the nearest legitimate Nokia dealer I could! I am also happy it cost me less than the RRP of an N95 here because I'm pretty sure E90 RRP will be quite a lot higher than N95 (not that anyone pays RRP for anything these days :-) )
