        Way2SMS seems to be working no more in terms of email alerts on mobile. I tried it number of times and many numbers and it didn’t work. It anyways doesn’t work for DND numbers.

        I found a site called which seems to be working for me. It works for DND numbers as well and it works really fast. But it isn’t free of cost. But its worth as the price is kinda cheap.

      This is very useful service mate, Do we get the whole message without any ads, or does way2sms attach ads in between?

      Gmail’s Mail Fetcher feature will not be able to fetch mail from your FREE Yahoo account. You need the PAID version Yahoo! Mail Plus for Mail Fetcher or the other regular programs like Outlook or Thunderbird to work. The FREE version doesn’t have POP3 settings.

        @Party Stuff
