    I told you guys before i came to uni i would pick your brains! Well i got another kind request. Im looking for keywords to research. I got a pile of 12 books on mobile communications and mobile internet and email but as usual i want to go above and beyond!

    here is my problem:

    sending an email from a mobile phone to a PC.

    I need to examine 2 aspects:
    • Specification & description of mobile hardware
    • Specification & description of required software

    Like i said im not being lazy nor am i asking for someone to spoon feed me (whose of you who know me by now know i like finding out things myself!) - what i am asking for is some assistance in terminalogy or technologies associated with this process.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    ps excuse the typos - eyes are killing me - been programming all nite!

    Depends on who is operating the email part of the phone connection, but it basicaly the same for any email - mobile or not.

    Emails go from the user (the mail user agent - MUA) to a server (the mail transport agent - MTA) which looks at it and works out how to deliver it. It usualy delivers it to another MTA - run by the destination ISP, who eventualy delivers it to the final user.

    Zim,

    are you talking about regular mobile phones or smartphones\PDAs?

    with a PDA (running Windows Mobile) you can connect to an exchange server and get full Outlook functionality.

    Link
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/5/default.mspx

    Another example is with the Nokia n70, you can run a full POP3 client (like Outlook express) and send through any POP server you have the credentials for. Outbound SMTP goes through the service providers SMTP server (no relay restrictions are on)

    Um - you need to define 'normal'! :biggrin Precisely what that means has been subject to severe change over the years.

    My first two mobiles wouldn't have been able to email at all - emailing then wasn't 'normal'.
