This looks very interesting - cheap "blackberry type" mobile email (just have to pay for the data transferred) but works like real email progs

BlueWhaleMail - Free software for mobile email and social networking

I have a hotmail account so I had a search for something to forward to my isp pop3 account and came across this.
Hotmail Forwarding - GetMail For Hotmail

I think I'll give them a go and report back

(unless someone's already using it or similiar product and can report on it?)
