Will Yahoo mail (push email) send emails directly to your iPhone without updating mailbox every 15 minutes?

Will Bellsouth.net email work the same or not?

Please Help!

Has this been confirmed? It will not work as the blackberry does where any e-mail account that is IMAP will be pushed? I thought we were still waiting for an answer on this one.

That would be news to me. I thought push email was unique to Yahoo.

I think the Yahoo Push will be the only one that will send it immediately. The other accounts will have to be configured to check for mail every so often just like they do on any other computer.

With the blackberry it is not ISP dependent. For instance when I set up my e-mail account I can use my work, .Mac, etc. and it will always push the e-mail to the device. Yahoo mail doesn't actually do anything different as far as I know. On blackberry it is the device that does the setup and it works for all IMAP e-mail addresses. I don't see why Yahoo would get special attention. If the device supports Push e-mail of any kind then it should work for any IMAP e-mail address. Just my $0.02.

So basically you have Mac mail on the phone and you can set up an account like gmail. Then you just set the mail to check that account whenever you want. It's essentially the same as push, since you can have it check automatically.

Is that correct?

No. On a blackberry every account I have set up is push! Meaning when an e-mail is sent to any of my accounts it automatically comes directly to my phone without me having to schedule a check interval at all. This is why so many businesss people and travelers like myself have blackberries. I just don't see why if Yahoo push is supported that wouldn't mean any Imap is push supported, especially .mac for pete's sake.

I think the reason why the yahoo one is supported is because its gonna be free, as of right now you have to upgrade and pay yahoo to get push

I am very chill. I am just wondering if this has been confirmed either way yet. Also just filling in those who have never used a blackberry. Either way Push/No-Push I don't care. I will be hanging out in line just like the rest of you. :cool:

I have a feeling that IMAP might be supported but for a price. Yahoo is the only FREE service.
Maybe true I guess... but most companies I know of use Imap so I am wondering if it will work for those of us who have company e-mail that is already Imap capable?

I don't care about your stupid blackberry! I have one too, I know what push is. I was talking about an iPhone, since that is what we are here for!

No way I can't wait! I don't care either way, I just don't understand how it works I guess. I just want to throw my stupid BB against a wall and bring in happier days...
