me, E-Mail is one of the most used Windows Mobile features and there might be
many reasons, why we are not satisfied with Microsoft's current inbuilt E-Mail
application. Maybe WebIS latest FlexMail release is something you was looking
for for a long time too. FlexMail is a full fledged E-Mail client for your
Pocket PC which supports reading and replying to ActiveSynch E-Mail for basic
operations or through its infinitely more powerful POP3/IMAP4 services to your
E-Mail server. With support for industry standard SSL and SOCKS proxies, you can
connect to almost any E-Mail provider including Google's GMail service!
With FlexMail's many options you can customize your E-Mail usage much more than
any the Pocket PC Inbox allows. Receive your E-Mail via ActiveSync and respond
via your POP3/IMAP4 SMTP account. Have FlexMail only hold the last 5 days of
your IMAP folders. Create local folders and server folders. Synchronize by age,
size, and synchronizations status on a per folder basis allowing you to get only
the last 5 day's worth of E-Mail in your Inbox but the last months in your
Personal folder, for example.
The intuitive interface makes working with mail on the Windows Mobile 2003 and
5.0 devices a joy. You have multiple interfaces to choose from such as the
normal Folders/Messages tab, the 3 pane view or showing a preview window in all
views. Change the orientation to landscape mode on startup. You control the way
FlexMail downloads your mail, the way it responds, and the way you read it.
Use the Mail Rules to filter your E-Mail, the folder searching to find your
E-Mail, and the powerful integrated spell checker to check the spelling of your
E-Mail. It is based off the popular award winning PhatSpell from PhatWare, Inc.
FlexMail will also work with the full PhatSpell installation as well.
FlexMail was released as a completely rewritten version and is called FlexMail
2007 now. Beside many new features, many bugs have been fixed.
The full version costs US$ 19.95 but a trial version is available as well. In
addition, WebIS offers free or reduced upgrade for FlexMail 2006 customers.
