The best way to get email alerts on mobile phone via sms is to use 3rd party service. weekwill.com allows you to receive email notifications on mobile through SMS. I tried it and it works perfect for me.

May be you're right my friend but that service is not free. You will have to pay atleast Rs.149/month. And if you're gonna pay that much amount then i would say that weekwill.com is the best service provider for email services.
