OVERVIEW
Pick your phone out in the crowd with a new email tone. We bundle over 60 alert tones with MailTones, from subtle professional tones to pager alerts, load horns and whistles - perfect for hearing email in a noisy environment, or alerting you to very important messages.

As well as playing new email tones, MailTones can show you a pop-up "push alert" on your iPhone, showing the sender and subject of your new email message - so you know instantly whether you need to launch Mail and read the message, or if it can wait.

One practical way to use MailTones is to set your default email tone to silent, or ignore, and just set audible alerts for people and message subjects you want to know about - then when your iPhone beeps, you'll know its an email message that matters.

BENEFITS
• Pick a new email tone from over 60 we supply
• Set custom tones for contacts, subjects, recipient addresses and domains
• Get quick alerts of incoming messages
• Cut distractions by setting unimportant email to silent or ignore
• "Do Not Disturb" automatically stops alerts at night
• Simple set-up from GMail, MobileMe and any server which supports "forward a copy" forwarding of email
• Developed and passionately supported by a UK company with over 10 years experience in the mobile industry

HOW IT WORKS
When you run MailTones, we'll give you a special email address @mailtones.net - forward A COPY of your email to that address and any mail you receive will make your iPhone beep with your chosen tone. You can choose to copy all your email to mailtones.net, or use filters to just forward some messages. When email arrives at our server, we send a Push message to your iPhone - causing it to beep, whistle, ring or buzz! Please make sure you can forward a copy of your email to a second address - GMail and MobileMe users can do this, but we understand Yahoo Mail does not provide this facility. MailTones uses the Amazon EC2 platform, to allow for extreme reliability and stability, however cannot guarantee delivery of message notifications. The price includes ongoing use of our service, with no recurring fees.

GMail forwarding now requires a code - but we detect and show this in MailTones automatically, so you can enter it in GMail settings. Please make sure your GMail account is set to English when setting up forwarding for this to work!
