access Gmail on your Nokia 7710 or other mobile phone using GPRS, as you know you get charged for the amount of data downloaded.
Now on the 7710, and I suspect other phones too, it checks for everything - including previously sent mail as well as inbox mail you've already read on your computer.
I use mobiles only to check my Gmail when out and about, mostly I check my Gmail on my computer at home or at work. So I only need my mobile to check for new mail that's come in since I last logged in to Gmail on my computer. No point paying to download mail I've already read.
A little tip or trick I use, which many others probably already do, is this. Before I log out of Gmail on my computer, especially if I know I'm going to be out, and might be getting Gmail while I'm on the move, I go to:
- Forwarding and POP
- Choose "Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on"
- Save Changes.
I set my 7710 to download headers only anyway, so it's probably just pennies saved, but over time, with the amount of mail I get, it does add up, so it can't hurt.
