    I was going to get the iPhone 4 but then I noticed the Ipod touch for almost 1/3 the price (in Denmark). So the iPod is tempting!

    My e-mail is Outlook and I would like my "phone" to let me know when I have received an e-mail.

    Is that possible with the Ipod, when it is connected to the Internet?

    Yes, you can receive emails on iPod Touch when you are connected to Wi-Fi. You say your email is "Outlook," which is only a desktop email client. I use Gmail and it works fine, but I used to have a Yahoo email and I had trouble setting that up.

    Thanks for your reply.

    My mail is Outlook web access, so it is web based.

    If it's web outlook you usually use, it's probably hooked into an exchange server, which will work fine with an ipod touch. Push-compatible too.

    Outlook Web Access is a Microsoft Exchange server AFAIK, and it should work with the iPod's built-in Mail app. I don't know for sure because I don't own an iPod touch.

    I think you need to have the following info:
    server address, email address, username, password.
