    I don't have a phone that will access my email.
    So, just wondering, what are my options to access email from a cellphone ?
    ie - if I have POP3 accounts, or an Exchange server with no POP3 ?
    How does an individual handle email on Blackberry without a BE Server ?

    A friend mentioned he has to run a "redirector" on his home computer all the
    time...

    B;ackberrys require a Blackberry Server.

    POP3 is trivial to implement on an Exchange Server. Someone is just
    plain lazy if your Exchange Server will not p3ovide POP access.

    A cellphone with a POP3 and/or IMAP e-mail client would be a start.
    You'll also need some kind of data plan from your provider.

    Most "smartphones" do POP3 without a problem, and Windows Mobile-based
    smartphones handle MS Exchange e-mail as well.

    I've never used a BB, but I believe they have POP/IMAP support as well as
    BIS/BES.

    Redirectors are usually used to simulate "push e-mail" without the use of
    BES or a Microsoft Exchange server. For POP/IMAP no redirectors are
    necessary.

    My Cingular/Motorola V551 would fetch and send pop3/smtp email with
    little fuss, easy to set up. The Motorola V3xx and Nokia 6126 both seem
    to have "lost" that feature.

    Cingular adds support for yahoo mail, sbc/yahoo, aol, and hotmail.

    All three of my phones will run Google Mail, either xhtml or local app.
    Google Mail could be your primary app, or it could fetch pop mail from
    another source.

    Depending on usage, you might want a data plan, or just pay as you go.

    How about "All thats tethering me to the office is email... I could
    just carry my email terminal on my hip and have a ****ing life!".

    Now please, go commit suicide you self-centered bag of used panty liners.

    The V3xx actually has a good email client. The problem is that Cingular
    disabled it in Cingular-branded handsets. The solution is to enable it,
    as described in the Motorola wiki.

    Likewise most of the more capable regular cell phones. In addition,
    those that run Java (J2ME) can run the slick Google Mail applet.
