Yes, I was thinking I'd put a filter on my imap server which would
send an SMS when messages come in.  When the phone receives the SMS it
would check for new mail.  It had crossed my mind to stuff message
headers into the sms too.  Then you could decide if its worth
downloading the full message over gprs.

I just have a bunch of ideas in my head, though it does look like I
might have to make a imap client first as I don't see on yet :-)
