This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

For what operating system and which phone? Android, iOS, blackberry? – Brian McCarthy Mar 14 '11 at 16:23

I would open a Gmail account, make it pull email from the service provider where email is stored and use Gmail's mobile application to read email.

Not the best of solutions, but the fastest one.

There were a few more at one stage, but the overhead of providing free email along with the spam problem meant that most providers had to shutdown. This means that only the best of the best will survive, gmail, hotmail, yahoo - these have proven to stand the test of time. Even now Nokia's Ovi Mail is been run by Yahoo.
