Looking for a way to get your mail, for free, while travelling?
On X-series able mobiles (they may have expanded this to all Three mobiles), you get free "3mail", even if you're not subscribed to X-series. Your address is email@example.com.
Three lets you check your "3mail" for free. Mail sent is included in your cap. Your phone accesses this mail using POP3 or IMAP.
So, it occurred to me, why not redirect your normal mail to your "3mail", and use GPRS to download your mail?
