1. the built in email system works well and i have it set up with gmail.
however, it always disconnects! it will sit connected for a while but then will just disconnect, with what seems like when it feels like it.
i also have tried emoze, but that does not let the mail server know you have looked at the message and you cannot delete messages, along with a dodgy interface.
can i make the email stop disconnecting!?
i have the packet connection set to always be connected. but still!
2. does the 'push email' in the features list even make a difference?
Yep. Mine's the same. It seems to be a safety feature - if the connection is idle for a length of time. Does the same with a wlan connection. I cannot find any settings to disable or extend the connection idle time ??
