    I have just tried to access my Web Mail account on Earthlink, and after completing the sign-in information (email address and password), I touched the Sign In button. Nothing happened at all, although the button did turn grey. (I then immediately tried the same thing on my MPB, which is connected to the same WiFi network, and the site came up properly, so I must assume it is working.)

    Is this a common iPhone experience, or am I missing something?

    You have javascript and plug-ins on?? Dont know if that will do anything, but Ive found a few sites that dont work properly with those off. I typically browse with javascript off to speed it up a little bit.

    Mobile Version

    I have not had a problem with my mail providers (GoDaddy, Hotmail, Yahoo). However, what I do is use the Mobile version since it show less data. Maybe Earthlink has an option. I think you might like it better anyway.

    Thanks, Voodoo and Mike, for your responses.

    Earthlink has no mobile support: "Generally the answer is no, as the browsers on most mobile devices are not supported by Web Mail."

    However, I tried it again today via the hotel's wireless system, and I was able to access my mail page on the iPhone.

    Now I'm beginning to wonder about my AEBS system at home. I will try it again when we return.
