What is mobile email?

Mobile email means you can access email from your mobile phone, wherever you are. You can set it up to work with your work email address or web-based email such as Gmail or Hotmail, as well as allowing you to synchronise your contacts and your calendar with your phone.

How does it work?

Mobile email is generally available on smartphones such as Blackberrys or PDAs. The phone will use data services, such as 3G or Edge, to download data from the internet. Mobile email is set up to be as secure and fast as possible.
