I've been told that there are e-mail limitations on an Iphone such as one e-mail account per phone. Kind of sad that Apple did that since most Blackberry phones can handle up to 10 e-mail accounts and possibly even more if you have access to a Blackberry domain controller.

You might have to use the web browser to get your ymail to work. I take it Ymail is Yahoo Mail?

How can i push on emails on my 3G iphone/


Getting Started
1 Tap on the Settings app icon on the home page 2. Scroll down and open Mail Contacts Calendars
3 Tap Add Account
4 Select Microsoft Exchange
5 In the Email field, enter your Gmail address Leave the Domain field blank Enter your Google s Username and Password Once done tap Save You might see the Unable to verify certificate error message Select ccept
6 A new Server input field will now appear Enter m.google.com Tap Next to continue
7 Select the Google services that you want to sync. For me, I activated all the available synchronization services. Tap Done google sync enable Your Google sync Push notification services is now set up To activate the push notification you need to turn the Push feature on in the iPhone Settings section.At the Mail Contacts, Calendar section tap Fetch New Data Make sure that the Push is turned to ON Done Few things to note 1 Google sync requires you to be constantly connected to the Web You have to keep your 3G or WIFI connection Always Of for the best result 2 The push notification can be very draining on your battery life If you value your battery life much more than the push technology turn the Push feature OFF for optimal performance Push email support is one of the iPhone 3G s most anticipated features for road warriors but it doesn't work with just any email account Find out how to get hooked up The iPhone 2.0 software available for the iPhone 3G iPhone and iPod touch can t automatically turn any email account into push email It can only instantly send new messages to your phone if your email service supports push email The new iPhone 2.0 software supports push email in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange servers and Apple s Mobile Me service (the replacement for Apple s Mac Apple has labelled Mobile Me Exchange for the rest of us and it can push email to devices running iPhone 2.0 plus keep the device in sync with Microsoft Outlook on a PC or Mail Address Book and i Cal on a Mac he new iPhone s main settings menu now features a new icon Fetch New Data which lets you enable push email You can also schedule the phone to automatically check non-push email services every 15 30 or 60 minutes, or else only manually Which email works with push Push support from other services depends on the provider. The original iPhone supported push email with Yahoo by routing email through i map.apple mail yahoo.com but the service was flaky. This is still the default Yahoo email wizard configuration under iPhone 2.0 but if it refuses to work you can still go into Other and manually set up POP3 Yahoo access Gmail does not support push email only I MAP or POP3 What if I m using G mail or my email from an ISP like iiNet Of course the workaround is to forward your existing email address such as a G mail account, to your Mac account You could even create server side filters on G mail to only forward emails from certain senders to your Mac address to ensure you re not bombarded with push email spam You can also configure Mobile Me to automatically check external POP3 email accounts but this won t get emails from a G mail account to your phone as quickly as it would if your G mail account was automatically forwarding them Push email uses more data The iPhone 2.0 mail client only downloads email headers from I MAP and POP3 servers, in order to save bandwidth When accessing push email services the phone automatically downloads the body of the email and small attachments meaning you need a generous monthly data allowance The iPhone disables its wifi adaptor when sleeping switching over to the mobile data network. This means most of your push email will come down over the mobile data network while the phone is at rest, even when you're within range of a wifi network

Save notes online on iPhone/iPod/iPad


The new iOS 4 pushed out a lot of new features to all the supported devices - iPod Touch (except 1st gen), iPhone (all gens), and the iPad. One of those features is the ability to save your notes online on your email account via IMAP. For example, if you add your G-Mail or Yahoo! Mail account to your mail app via IMAP, you can enable saving of notes online.

All you have to do is to go to the settings for your email account, and flip the switch next to 'Notes' and turn it to 'ON'. After you do this, all of your notes are synced to your email account automatically.

In G-Mail, a label called 'Notes' is created in your email account. All the notes from your iOS 4 device are synced to your account as conversations, and are marked with the label 'Notes'. These notes are read-only from your G-Mail account, and can be edited only on your iOS 4 device. The changes are automatically reflected in G-Mail.

How do I set up my e-mail on my iphone?


Hello Gemllm

Tap Mail on the Home screen of your iOS device. Select your email provider. If you don't see your email provider listed, tap Other > Add Mail Account. Follow the steps and provide the required information to configure your account. If you already have an email account set up and you want to modify its settings, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, tap the name of your account, and then your email address. Then tap any information you want to adjust. Apple maintains a database of the most common email settings. These settings are automatically configured on your device during setup. If the database doesn't automatically configure the settings and you don't know them, please contact your email provide.

I cannot get my email to be directed to my iphone


Email account setup with Mail is easy. If you're setting up an email account for the first time on iPhone or iPod touch, simply touch the Mail icon on the Home screen. If you're adding an additional account with software version 2.0 or later, touch the Settings icon on the Home screen, select Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select Add Account.

If you're setting up a Microsoft Exchange, MobileMe, Gmail, Yahoo! or AOL account, touch the icons for those services on the Add Account screen and enter your account information. If you're setting up an email account from another provider, select Other. In software version 2.0 or later, Mail can automatically setup many popular POP and IMAP email accounts using just your email address and password.1 As Mail looks up settings that match your email account you may see a note appear that will describe any limitations you may experience in using your email account. If Mail cannot find the settings needed to setup your email account, refer to the documentation from your email provider on how to manually setup an email account.

Syncing email account settings to iPhone or iPod touch
You use iTunes to sync your email account setttings to iPhone or iPod touch. iTunes supports Mail on a Mac, and Microsoft Outlook (2007 or 2003) and Outlook Express on a PC. See article "Syncing iPhone and iPod touch with your computer" for further details.

Note: Syncing email account settings to iPhone or iPod touch copies the email account setup, not the messages themselves. Whether the messages in your inbox appear on both iPhone or iPod touch and your computer depends on the type of email account you have and how it’s configured. You may need to enter your password on the device after syncing account settings.

My iphone does not alert me to new emails unless I open my email. In other words, the email ap doesn't show the correct # of emails actually in the box and I don't know there are new ones unless I open it....


First delete all email accounts from your IPhone except the one that you want to be updated without opening the email app.  IPhone can only automatically update one email account without accessing the email app.  Under settings on your IPhone, choose "mail, contacts calendars."  Then choose "Fetch new data." Then make sure to set "Push" to the  "ON." position.  Then select the time window for checking for new emails, "15 min 30 min manually."  Theoretically, your email app will check your email account or new emails every 15 minutes if you choose the 15 min option. The IPhone does not yet update emails every time you receive an email.

Push email


There is no push feature for Yahoo. It's a web based e-mail driven system just like hotmail and Google is. It can be used in Yahoo chat software as well if you have that feature on your Iphone.

The software might have changed in the Iphone but I know some users on this site complained that there was only one email account available per phone. I don't know if that was an Apple thing or an AT&T thing.

The G1 has a push feature for Google Mail but thats because Google software resides on the phone.

I believe in Yahoo you can forward the e-mail to another e-mail account. If you had it forward to another e-mail account on your phone that is pushing that would be the only work around.

Problem with sending emails on the iphone


What email provider are you using.
Also check who is your incoming mail server but the best way to do this is to delete your account and register it again on iPhone push mail.
