Not an effective solution
Do Not Bother with this app, sorry I purchased it! Requested tech support from Electric Pocket and they were zero help. You need to send all your mail thru them and they cannot help you get that done. For the BlackBerry users who have switched to Apple there needs to good app that will give you e-mail notification, this is not it.

I have to say, I'm not one to jailbrake my iPhone, so having access to an application like this is nothing short of brilliant. Albeit, I wish I didn't have to forward my mail. Don't get me wrong, I understand how the process works, and that it's secure, etc, etc. But...

Fab app
Set up from gmail was easy, now I have better email sounds - I know its my iPhone that's got the mail, and often I even know who its from! A good add to my iPhone. Well done!

Mail forwarding!!!!
If I had realized that I would have to forward my mail to get notifications, I never would have purchased this app. Wish I could get a refund.

adds push notification... but only for things I care about
The most useful thing about this app for me is the fact that I can set up filters for what I want to be notified about -- and have it remain silent for all other mail. I get roughly 50+ email every day... but only really want my phone to beep when: - my wife sends an email (I configured MailTones to play a 'boing' sound) - something happens on Facebook that triggers an email notification (MailTones plays a soft 'drip' sound) - a server goes down at work and I get an automated email saying that we need to get it back up ASAP (which triggers a loud 'alarm siren') ...and all other email events that I have determined as 'non-critical' are silent. And since I can customize the tone that plays for each contact or email subject, I know the nature of the incoming message without ever looking at my phone. My one request would be to add a filter setting for the 'importance' flag on an email (which would play a defined tone that would override any other custom tone). But even without that functionality, I find this app incredibly useful.

I got mail
Fantastically useful app. I can listen out for important emails from work and home now without having to check every 5 minutes or so and ignore the rest till later. Great UI, easy to use. Simple and excellent.
