Forwarding E-Mail to Your Wireless Device

Arch messaging subscribers can keep track of incoming e-mail, even while out of the office, by forwarding messages to their wireless messaging device. Users of popular e-mail packages such as Lotus Notes and Microsoft Outlook, with a Microsoft Exchange Server, can forward incoming e-mail messages to their wireless device. Some popular web based e-mail packages, like Yahoo! Mail, also provide forwarding capabilities allowing you to forward incoming e-mail messages to your wireless device. Please see below for a list of links to information on forwarding, or redirecting, messages from many popular e-mail packages.

When you receive forwarded messages they will appear on your wireless device as sent from the e-mail account the message was forwarded from, not the original sender. Replying to a forwarded message will send the message back to your e-mail account, not the original sender. To reply to the original sender of the message you must enter their e-mail address. Microsoft Outlook 2000 users can use the redirect feature to indicate the original sender of the message and allow replying back to the original sender rather than your e-mail account.

E-mail accounts provided by popular Internet service providers (ISPs), such as America Online and Earthlink, typically require users to be connected to the ISP's network in order to forward incoming e-mail messages. Contact your ISP to learn about services provided to automatically forward new e-mail messages to your wireless device while you are away from your computer.

Many web based e-mail services provided by popular Internet portal sites, including Alta Vista and Excite, currently do not allow subscribers to automatically forward incoming messages as a standard feature. To learn more about how to forward incoming messages from your web mail account please contact your e-mail provider.
