PushMail works great and is BETTER than others because...
Authored by: mkoistinen on Aug 11, '09 11:57:27AM

I've been using PushMail since it was released because it solves a major issue for me.

I have an office account that uses Exchange, and this works well, but unfortunately, the iPhone can only connect to one Exchange-based push mail service at a time. This pretty much rules out having push e-mail for my personal accounts.

PushMail to the rescue! In fact, I like PushMail's implementation than having ALL my e-mail sent to my iPhone. In Gmail, I can simply set up filters for those e-mails that I do want to be notified about. In fact, I can set up a special e-mail address with Gmail's plus-addressing that allows me to tell my friends and family how to reach me 'urgently'. If they simply add '+urgent' to my username, it gets filtered by Gmail and is PushMail'ed to my phone.

I also tried MobileMe and their 'push' e-mail service too, but that requires setting up a whole another account on your iPhone. I had them both running for awhile, and PushMail always came in faster by a minute or so. I have no idea why, but it is faster than even Apple.
