Hints and Tips
To use SpookyTones, you'll need to forward a copy of your email through our servers - please make sure you can do that and are comfortable with that before purchasing!
When you run SpookyTones, 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 howl with your chosen tone. You can choose to copy all your email to mailtones.net, or use filters to just forward some. When mail arrives at our server, we send a Push message to your iPhone - causing it to scream, wail, growl or bark! 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.
After the Halloween fun is over, we recommend you take a look at MailTones - which gives you a wide range of songs to choose from, as well as an enhanced set of features - including different tones for subjects and domains, as well as a "Do Not Disturb" capability for evenings and weekends.
