    How to push AOL e-mail to my phone?

    Does anyone know how I can get my mobile to alert me when I have received an e-mail on my AOL account? I want to be able to switch alerts off (for when I am at home) or on (for when I am away from a computer).

    I already have the phone set up to view my e-mails, but I want an automatic alert when one has been received.

    Anyone know how coz I've searched the AOL site in vain for any help.

    Thanks

    Can see something about being alerted when receiving an email from a specified address, but nothing about being alerted to any new mail. And even the first one takes you to a broken link, unfortunately.

    It may do for you, all I get is : the service you are trying to reach is temporarily unavailable

    And when I did get through and tried to add a mobile phone I got:

    The system is currently having difficulties and we cannot continue. This error did not occur because of anything you or your computer did.Please try again. If this problem persists, please try again later.We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused you.
    Will keep trying. Thanks

    AOL responded to my e-mail query thus:

    [FONT=Tahoma][SIZE=3]Unfortunately this is not something that we support so we cannot offer you any steps to resolve your query. We do not support email usage through mobile devices. [/SIZE][/FONT]

    So there you are.

    I suppose I need something like Thunderbird for mobiles
