(Pseudo) Push Gmail – Free

Pseudo Push Email Pseudo Push Email

Push Email according to Steve, “it seems is something every man and his dog wants, i.e. emails hitting your smartphone (with a beep) as soon as they’re received into your mailbox. In other words, you don’t have to wait the ten seconds or so to check your mail server when asking for your email in the ‘old fashioned’ way.”

A lot of power users noted when Gmail introduced IMAP support and have configured the native S60 client to automatically push our Gmail into our inboxes. However they are still a lot of people who haven’t worked all this out. Steve has been experimenting getting his GMail ‘pushed’ onto his S60 smartphone, for free.

  1. Sure but for those of us who are not really paranoid about instant email yet like tokeep ourselves updated Steve’s guide is the best bet.

    For more professional usage Profimail is a good app, have tried it but never really felt the need to buy it.

  3. imap idle works gr8 on my n 82. This is supercool. Profimail is not ‘push’ if i am not wrong. It also works the same way as your native e mail client. Just that, you have options for filtering spam, create rules et al. I actually found emoze much better. Takes less of ram, minimal battery consumption and free!
    Nokia e mail also does not support multiple mails, pls correct if i am wrong here!
