How many email accounts can you have on the iPhone
I can't find the answer to this one. I am trying to decide if I want the iPhone or the BB Bold. The bold will allow me to have 10 addresses. Does anyone know how may the 3G phone will allow? How many does the 2G allow?

So far I've got 6
So far I've got 6 email accounts set up on my iPhone, so my guess is that it could be unlimited. However, my guess would be something more realistic like 50 or 100. This would, however, I would guess, severely diminish battery life, especially if they are being checked ever 15 minutes.
I wouldn't need to check all my accounts frequently, I have 2 that I need to check very frequently all day and the others can only be 1ce or 2ce a day or even less often for a few. I just want to make sure I pick the device that doesn't limit me too much.

So what email accounts are compatible with the iPhone? (And by compatible, does that mean it is able to check the account for email every 15 minutes?)
Can all general email accounts (gmail, hotmail, aol, yahoo, etc.) be checked using Safari?

Any POP or IMAP e-mail should work, unless there's some really strange account/server settings. I think I read somewhere that Hotmail doesn't support POP or IMAP without paying extra for a premium account. But in my experience, essentially any e-mail account can be set up. There are so many authentication and port settings in the iPhone that any e-mail account should work, as long as it supports POP or IMAP.
I don't want to sound rude, but if Hotmail doesn't support POP or IMAP, you should stop using it.
GMail has a great "web app" for the iPhone, and as long as the web page doesn't have way too much AJAX and other stuff going on that overwhelms the iPhone's RAM/processor, any web page that works in a desktop browser should work in Mobile Safari.

It works for me.
