    Hi,
    I was looking around in mail and I think it is really cool that u can add your own sound for when you receive a new email. 2 things would be nice. 1) Add a sound for each individual contact. 2) Mail sends you a txt message when you receive an email. If anyone knows how to do ANY of the above stated, please let me know. Thanks

    If you are in the US couldn't you make a mail rule so that when a message is received it will forward it as an SMS? Like for AT&T forward the email to 5555551212@ cingularme.com and replace with your number.

    Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me, however I think fishkorp is correct. Forwarding to your SMS address is best.

    Many emails are longer than the 160 character limit of sms

    Get iPhone and read your email?
