Mobile Me/ Yahoo
I have a quick question. My free trial of Mobile me ends on the 24th. I was wondering is Mobile Me the only one out there right now that will sync contacts and calenders or does Yahoo do that as well?
Also if I remove Mobile Me from my email list can I still sync to my iTunes to get all my contacts or will I need to enter them all manually.
Thanks in advance.

I'll definitely vouch for Mail2web... I've been using it for two years now with a Google-hosted apps account forwarding to my free mail2web account. Thanks to the push nature of Activesync, my mail shows up on my phone even faster than it does in my webmail, and my contacts/tasks/calendar are always synced to the cloud (in this case, mail2web). I just wish there were easy ways to sync all of the stuff sitting on that exchange server with Google's services, as I live in their world for most of my internet needs.

I've been using Yahoo as a push mail forwarder for awhile. It generally works well, though there have been a couple of instances where it has missed pushes. I make sure to fetch on a regular basis just to make sure. I forward all my incoming mail accounts to my Yahoo forwarder account, which pushes them to my iphone. It's free and easy to set up.

@schartzr if you use a free Mail2Web account instead of Yahoo, you can set your "from" or "reply-to" address as your gmail account (you do this in your activesync settings). This way, it shows up on your device via activesync/push, and any mail you send via that account will look like it was sent from your Gmail. ...and no, you don't have to upgrade to a paid account to get this capability (contrary to what the website suggests).

i really need to reconsider using the mail2web account, i set one up, but couldnt figure out how to get it to push to my iphone. i signed up for the 60 day trial of mobile me, but i use a business yahoo acct, and if i forward the email to the mobile me acct, i cant access it within outlook. that made it a no go for me as i live and die by my outlook.
