Alcatel-Lucent's OT-800 One Touch Tribe is a QWERTY cellphone used on mobile networks around the world. The Tribe includes support for accessing e-mail through POP3 or IMAP4 protocols, provided you know your e-mail host's POP (incoming) and SMTP (outgoing) server addresses. Fortunately, the Tribe ships with preset data for many of the leading e-mail service providers. This means you can set up access to popular Internet e-mail accounts such as Windows Live Hotmail and Gmail without having to manually enter server configuration details.
