One more addition to my popular GET ON MOBILE series. Now, I am here to tell you how to get email updates delivered to your mobile phone. I am telling the same procedure as used in my previous posts, but the services used here are different.
1. Using mail forwarding:
This can be done using your phone’s email id. Most of the email portals provide you with mail forwarding option. Gmail for sure, Yahoo! for few accounts – I dont know what makes the difference, my Yahoo! mail do not support this but my friend’s does. Place your mobile’s mail id in the forward id and choose to keep the forwarded message inbox. This is a very old trick discussed on the blogosphere.
2. Using MailBucket or Dodgit:
MailBucket and Dodgit/Dodgeit are the services which provide an e-mail to rss convertion service. Again you need to have a mail forwarding facility in your mail and you need to forward to their address. Any address is valid with them, no need of signup. You need to forward your mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may say its not safe, I agree. If your id is email@example.com any Dick or Harry can crack it. But if you choose firstname.lastname@example.org even an expert hacker will not be able to crack it. This is the need to use such service. You also use that and forget. Subscribe to the feed url with some service like MyToday, RSSFWD, FeedCrier, Yahoo! Alerts or any other alternative.
3. Using SMSmyEmail
SMSmyEmail is a service intended to get SMS alerts on your cell phone as and when your mail id gets a mail. You are also provided with filter options. It has few limitations. You need to provide them your email id and its password for them to configure. It is a new service and not so popular one. It is in beta state and first 1000 signups will get 50 alerts free and even 20 alerts for every referral you get them.
