WAP Mail

Occasionally when I get stuck in a line or something, I use my Nokia 3650 cell phone to check my mail.

Typically, I go through Mail2Web, a site that lets you check any e-mail account. Unfortunately, the site's not really designed to be accessed on a cell phone's small screen, so you have to scroll back and forth and it takes freaking forever.

So what I need from you, dear readers, are any suggestions on a site that does the same thing but is optimized for cell phones and other devices. Anyone know one? I did some looking around but didn't find anything that fit my purpose.

Update: I'm all set now thanks to NinaKaye who noticed the WAP and PDA version icons on the bottom of Mail2Web that I had completely overlooked before. Oops!

I don't know much about this stuff (using cell phones for internet) and I've never heard of mail2web before, but when I just went to that page I noticed a couple of links near the bottom. A PDA version and a WAP version. Is that what you need or does that still not work? ('cause if that's the case...I don't know and I'm sorry I made you read all this! heh)

For computer-based IMAP browsing, I like to use - but I don't think they have a WAP version.

Why don't you just use the e-mail application built in to the Nokia 3650? I find it much better than shoehorning e-mail through a WAP browser.
