Here are some mobile sites:

Addendum:

  • Skype for mobile http://www.sykpe.com/m may also be worth having. Calling costs money, even where a PC-based skype call may be free. However, it supports (free) text chat, as well as group (text) chat, which is worth having.

1 More about google mail[edit]

Of course the google mail application also works with hosted domains. E.g. with camanetwork email, you simply enter "username@camanetwork.org" and your password, and you can use the application.

(If you don't use google mail, there is of course mobile webmail for other services, e.g. hotmail/msn or yahoo http://m.yahoo.com/mail. However, having a mobile app like google mail for mobile is nice, because it reduced bandwidth to an absolute minimum, which makes the application fast.)
