And interways.net are constantly adding features, too. They now have calendar sharing for iPhones too. Push mail, contacts, etc. all can be shared in teams/families.
Great features and seamless integration in Leopard/Snow Leopard.
Remote Wipe as well. iDisk like storage,...

I have been checking out Mobile Me and Interways..., I'm curious if either will let me use my Gmail SMTP, instead of their own. I'd prefer to have all my mail come from my gmail address and not from either of those, since the people I know have too many email addresses to remember for me already.

interways.net lets you use the Gmail smtp server. Even better, they let you use your Gmail address for sending mail through the interways servers, too. That way, you can keep your old address with no one noticing the new one.

Hi there,

i also frist ordered the 60 day trial on interways.net and tried out everything i wanted.
Acutally everything is in realtime sync. My gmail address, my calendar and my contacts.
Mails are pushed to my iPhone, just 2 seconds later they arrive in outlook on my desktop.
And of course if necessary i can access all my data using the really fast web interface.
Its perfect. And it`s much cheaper than mobileme but having more features.

You can also upload files to interways and access them from the web interface or even from the iPhone using a webdav client.

By the way: this is the first pushmail service that really works in realtime with my iPhone, no delay! Awesome!

I like it;-)

My impressions on interways mail. I have used several push type emails. Gmail, Yahoo, MobileMe. I have to say. I'm happy to sign up for interways now. I like the functions, and to be honest it's faster and more accurate than Yahoo or Gmail. I've been impressed with their Customer Service too. They even helped me setup my Work Calendar which is on Lotus Notes and have it sync with theirs.

I just wanted people to know. If you want to pay for a service. There's is top notch. Plus it's much cheaper than Mobile Me.

Thanks again to omniscient for pointing me in the right direction.

MobileMe's mail servers are currently listed in the Backscater.org and Lashback.com email blacklist servers. This results in lots of mail servers rejecting email from any me.com or mac.com email address. Blacklist servers seem to cause more problems that they solve these days. [sigh]

Thanks, but Push sync is really something different...
Your solution is good for stationary use, but push sync is for mobile use.

Hi!
...
To start, I found (and am currently using with much success and liking it):
www.interways.net (interWaysMAIL)
I can definitely recommend these guys... BTW, they are way less expensive, complete push is $4.99/month in my plan.

Just took up your suggestion and have registered with them. Thanks for the tip Sir.
