As mentioned, it will be "NO GO" on the gmail. You should concentrate on
using Yahoo for mail access via your Newton. I'm actually quite pleased
with my AT&T (formerly SBC) DSL. Here are some finer points:

1) PPP Dial up included for free
2) Authenticated SMTP access from within (Home) or from outside (Public
Wifi) the Yahoo network
3) Yahoo Mail can check any number of external POP accounts, even through
Web Mail
4) *NEW* Web Mail access without SSL

As you can see, very compatible with your Newton. There are, of course,
many other features and benefits. However, Newton compatibility is very
important to me :-)

What I would like to see is somebody program an API to allow pushing of
data from my Newton to MyYahoo calendar, address book and notepad. I
believe it could be done through a combination of Newt's Cape scripts and
some basic HTML.

I say pushing data because I don't think I care about syncing. My Newton is
the master and what goes in there, stays there and becomes fact. (severely
vague metaphor, sorry)


(I also wish Mail V was more reliable when sending long messages)
