Hi all,

I am trying to setup my xtra (Yahoo!) email account and want to get 'Push' email if possible.

I have managed to enter my xtra.co.nz account (selected Yahoo! as the email account type in the wizard) and my account is verified OK. When I go into the Mail app, I get all of my various folders syncronised as they appear in the Webmail app, but still no Push notifications. I have 'Push' enabled on the iPhone.

Has anyone got this working and 'pushing' automagically?

Thanks.

Ah, is that what it does. I've only ever uninstalled it when iTunes has some weird problem.

Mobileme is awesome, you can track your phones location on the web, should you loose it, and sync all your contact and cal events so you never lose a thing, mac and pc. yeh ok, there is the slight cost.

Back on topic though, You could try and application on your phone called Prowl, and then you would either need a mac with growl on it or a pc with growl for windows ( sure that it works for pc too) .

Every time you get a growl info on you computer it pushes it to prowl and alerts you on your iphone. You can have it notify you for nearly anything, downloads, mail, facebook updates, twitter etc. Depends what you have running on your computer.

Yes the limitations are you need a computer running all the time, but it might help you for the meanwhile, i think prowls about 3 or 4 dollars in the app store.

If you want to go all out, you can have a Small Business Server, use the exchange connector pull down the mail and then deliver to your mobile device, WM, Nokia, iPhone, etc. This is the solution I'm using for my and my spouses Xtra mail, delivering to WM, Nokia & iPhone.
