can you sync to hotmail or yahoo, etc?

Is there a way to sync your PDA to your Hotmail, or Yahoo based email?  So far, all the sync abilities I've seen refer to PC based email/contact applications, like Outlook....


RE: can you sync to hotmail or yahoo, etc?

I don't know of a direct way to HotSync with a web-based e-mail service, such as Yahoo or HotMail.  However, you can have your web-based e-mail forwarded to your PC-based e-mail (e.g. Outlook Express).  The actual forwarding occurs when you access your OE inbox.  Note that this service *does* have a fee associated with it.

So, if you subscribe to the forwarding service, you'll receive your web-based e-mail on your Palm when you HotSync.  Of course, you'll also receive the e-mail that was sent directly to your Outlook Express account.

That's the best solution that I'm aware of.

Hope that helps.
