First Msg :O

Looking forward to syncing versamail with my Lotus Notes email. Haven't been able to do that yet.

Lotus Notes & VersaMail 2.5
AndyG @ 4/15/2003 5:27:56 PM #
I have tried for a couple of hours now to sync LN with the latest version of VersaMail. Tried everything possible but just can't get it to sync. Couldn't get version 2.0 working ever either.

Has anyone managed to get this to work? Looking through the newsgroups my feeling is no-one has ever managed and I am not confident the new version will help us either.

Lotus Notes
snowdej @ 4/22/2003 7:19:20 AM #
Hi

I have not had any problems synchronising versamail and lotus notes (notes 5 and 6) versamail 2.0

If you need any help just send me an email

Regards

Julian,

I am having great difficulties synching Versamail 2.5 with Notes R5 using a Tungsten T (on a NetWare LAN). For several years we have been using m500s and Intellisync 4 with no problems.

I don't understand why, when I set up a Synch Only session, that it requires a IMAP or POP configuration as I am not running either of these on my Domino server where my mail is stored (we don't replicate to the local drive).

It initializes the conduit fine but then hangs right after it notifies that "it is trying to connect to the account for ....". The log shows:

"- The account NotesMail has been configured as an IMAP client on either the desktop or the handheld, but not on both. This mis-configuration cannot continue through the HotSync operation.
VersaMail - None of the accounts are configured for HotSync. Use the conduit to configure accounts to HotSync."

I have double-checked everything but can't see what I am missing. Any ideas where else to look?

Regards .... MikeW

Neils @ 1/13/2004 12:59:53 PM #
MikeW I have the same problem despite everything being setup as IMAP on both desktop and client I get the same error as you. Have you managed to get it sorted ? or have I wasted my money on Versamail 2.5 ?

15min?

new505user @ 4/15/2003 11:21:41 AM #
Is there any reason Versamail doesn't offer even shorter intervals for automatic mail retrieval? For many people, sub-5 minute intervals would be much better. Is it a battery issue or a cost issue (AT&T doesn't want them to offer that option)? Does anyone know how often the RIM (say the GPRS version for a fair comparo with Tungsten/W) checks for mail? It's more frequently than every 15min, no?

RE: 15min?
hrl71 @ 4/15/2003 11:27:42 AM #
The RIMs use a different technology called "push" where the handheld automatically gets the email. RIM's do not need to "check" for email every so often, so it's different from the Tungsten W and other Palm devices.


RE: 15min?
hrl71 @ 4/15/2003 11:29:16 AM #
Wanted to add that if you need to be notified of emails faster, have people send you email via SMS or use an Yahoo! Mail account where they can send you SMS notifications of new emails on your Yahoo! account, then you go and check your Yahoo! email acct for the full text. You will have to sign up for Yahoo! Mail Plus to be able to check email via POP.

Thats one way to workaround some of the limitations of the T|W.

RE: 15min?
new505user @ 4/15/2003 12:30:18 PM #
Are you sure you're not confusing the pager and GPRS versions of the blackberries? I thought the "push" technology was something intrinsic to the pager networks. I thought in switching to GPRS, RIM traded off "push" for higher data rates. Since BOTH the Tungsten/W and the NEW blackberries use the same network, why can RIM offer push email and Palm can't? It seems absurd to me that Palm would set out to build a blackberry killer (and with hi-res color, SD support, and a MUCH more versatile OS it seems on many levels they have)and not incorporate such an obviously desirable technology. It's inevitably the FIRST thing the Walt Mossberg's of the world are going to harp on. Even if there is a tech difference, why not offer auto downloads every, say, 2 minutes? Thanks for the help

RE: 15min?
hrl71 @ 4/15/2003 1:15:32 PM #
The GPRS Blackberries do have push technology just like the pager versions. The key is the server software that RIM uses with the Blackberries, they can offer push email on any wireless platform they want to.

If RIM removed push tech from their GPRS Blackberries, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot, removing the exact thing that differentiates them from all other competitors. Palm does have a push solution, but it is enterprise-only where you have to purchase the Tungsten server software. I think they had it for the i705 series, as I can't find it anywhere on Palm's site...geez. I spoke to some Palm people at their Comdex booth and thats the solution they suggested last fall. Dunno what they're up to now - other than the fact that they've signed some licenses with RIM. Maybe those licenses were for the keyboards, maybe for more.

rsc1000 @ 4/15/2003 2:28:25 PM #
>Since BOTH the Tungsten/W and the NEW blackberries use the same network, why can RIM offer push email and Palm can't?

I thought Palm was going to be offering push capability through AT&T sometime this year? at least i remember reading that...

RE: 15min?
hrl71 @ 4/15/2003 4:04:50 PM #
Push capability doesn't depend on the network. It depends on the email server the device uses. The Blackberry email server pushes email to the Blackberry device. Palm users have to configure their email software to use their email server of preference (like any new PC, you got to set up your email app with your username/password/server, etc).

SMS notifications of e-mail
BillFugina @ 4/15/2003 4:07:46 PM #
I have written a program that sits on your desktop computer and will send an SMS notification to your palm when you have new e-mail.

The program is in early stages of development, but anyone can try it out. You can find it at http://www.dogspots.com/emailnotify

Currently, it only works with MS Exchange servers, but I am considering adding support for POP3 and IMAP4 servers; I'm just waiting to see how much interest there is.

Most e-mail programs limit polling for new messages to once every 15 min because more frequent polling would take up too much battery power and would cost too much for people that have to pay for data transfers. This program lets you turn off polling on your palm and do it on your desktop. When new messages arrive, a SMS message is sent to the palm so you know to fetch your mail.

Also, there are many e-mail programs (Mark/Space, BaseJet, etc) that recognize that the SMS message has arrived and will automatically fetch your mail when it notices the SMS come in.

Finally, there is a program for Treos called TreoHelper that will notice SMS messages and trigger any program when they come in. This program can be used to make other mail programs fetch even if they don't recognize the SMS trigger.

Having your e-mail automatically download as soon as it comes in is as close to "push" as it can get.

RE: 15min?
Altema @ 4/15/2003 9:26:33 PM #
I would have though they would have given more choices. SnapperMail, for example, lets you specify anywhere from once a day to once a minute in 1 minute increments. Once a minute is too short unless you have a lan connection, but it's good to have the option.

Free upgrade for Tungsten W users?

hrl71 @ 4/15/2003 11:26:34 AM #
The T|W just got released and didn't have VersaMail 2.5 - which it SHOULD have been released with. Will those users get a free upgrade to 2.5?


RE: Free upgrade for Tungsten W users?
hkklife @ 4/15/2003 11:34:25 AM #
T|W *should* have shipped with this standard, or at the very least Palm should offer it as a free download to T|W owners. T|W owners should be able to buy it at a substantial discount--$10 or less, I think.

Of course, none of the above is likely to occur and Palm wil continue to slowly alienate their customer base. Besides, who is to say that Palm will be around long enough to release another Tungsten-branded device (especially a wireless one)? I really hope that the Zire 71 is a runaway hit for them in every way imaginable...

RE: Free upgrade for Tungsten W users?
Mead Lawson @ 4/15/2003 12:02:10 PM #
Frankly, IMO updates within the major release level should be free for whomever owns a registered copy of v2.0. I can accept paying for an upgrade to v3.0, but not just for an update within the v2.x release. $35 bucks is pretty steep for an "update", don't you think?

Well, I have a Tungsten/T, and I just finished installing Version 2.5. I do not use the conduit, but I upgraded to Version 2.5 without any problems and without paying a $34.99 upgrade fee. You can download it from PalmGear here:

I haven't installed this yet - but isn't the PalmGear link just a trial of some sorts? why else would they have it listed with 34.99 just above the download link? this how PalmGear operates - free trial / pay for the full.

RE: Free upgrade for Tungsten W users?
lwehrung @ 4/15/2003 2:41:25 PM #
Well, I have not installed the software on a device that did not have Version 2.0 already installed. On my upgrade installation, there is no mention of it being a trial version. Anyone out there try a fresh install that can shed some more light on this? Thanks.

I just installed it on my T|T and i had never installed a previous version of VersaMail. No mention of of a trial version either. What does this mean? Either the software is detecting that i'm running it on a T|T (instead of checking for previous VersaMail version, or PalmGear screwed up, or Palm SG is relying on our honesty. Somethings up here...

sweet - i got mine for free:) i consider myself a fairly honest person - so i would have considered buying it wasn't for the fact that i just got my VersaMail 2.0 app with my T|T just 2 months ago - so i'll consider this my free upgrade:) i said 'honest' - not stupid.

This is the initial response I got from Palm about an upgrade price for VM 2.5:

Palm is not offering an upgrade price for VersaMail 2.5 at this time. There are actually so many new features in the product that we could have made it a full point release version.

I'm also glad I got my free upgrade when I did; I just got my T|T 3 weeks ago and didn't expect to be spending $35 to upgrade the software that came with it.

Palm's got most of the story about it on their website (they have a bad link to download it):

http://makeashorterlink.com/?Q1FE23934

Hope that fits.... I'm also curious about this quote:
"Palm VersaMail 2.5 also will ship in the box with future Palm Tungsten(TM) handhelds." So why do current owners have to *pay* to get it? Hope Palm gets it worked out quickly.

There's nothing illegal about asking for software that he should be given for free directly by Palm. Because Palm chooses to abandon it's current Tungsten owners, that's not his fault, rather Palm's. Given this, I'm sure they'll screw us regarding any future OS update.

You know better than this! It is not up to you or this forum to decide what "should" and "should not" be illegal about trading a software package. If a box of Office 2002 CD's fell off a truck, congrats to the lucky guy who finds them. That does not give him the right to copy that software just because he found it for free.
BTW, I agree that there should be a steep discount for current users, but I don't advocate piracy just because I think it is "unfair"

Let me see if I have this correct:

1.) It is available to buyers today when they purchase a Tungsten T (TT).
2.) TT sells for less today than what I paid for mine 2 months ago.
3.) No free upgrade for current TT Owners
4.) Cost to current TT owner is $34.95
5.) Short window to download a free copy on Palm, now closed

Hopefully someone will feel sorry for me and feel it necessary to provide me a copy.

Light at the end of the tunnel?

I have been pressuring Palm a bit and I just got this back from palm support:

"VersaMail(TM) 2.5 has just been released. An upgrade utility to upgrade the VersaMail 2.0 to version 2.5 has not yet been released. At this point of time I cannot comment on any release dates for the
VersaMail 2.5 upgrade. I suggest you visit the Palm web site regularly for news on the release of the VersaMail 2.5 upgrade. "

I had asked if it was at least possible to *pay* for an upgrade and not have to re-purchase at full price.

Maybe if a few more people asked them about this, they might hurry it up a bit. I sent email to Palm support@palm.com and at least got quick replies.

RE: Free upgrade for Tungsten W users?
ggeoffre @ 4/20/2003 10:47:33 AM #
I received the following response from Palm Support indicating that all new Tungsten purchases will receive the updated Versamail v2.5 'in the box', and that all exisitng Tungsten owners (including those of us that paid $499), will indeed have to purchase the upgrade...

The Versamail v2.5 is recently released and is available with the now releasing Palm Tungsten T handhelds. It is not available as a free upgrade for the previously released Palm Tungsten T handheld.

VersaMail rocks

Lidocaineus @ 4/15/2003 11:40:33 AM #
It's the only decent email program I know of for the Palm platform the supports IMAP properly (none of this limited to one folder business) and attachments well. The only thing it's missing is GnuPG support, but SSL IMAP access is practically as good. bluetooth + IMAP + no conduit + good procmail recipes (spamd / sms forwarding) = email heaven.

RE: VersaMail rocks
gillardm @ 4/15/2003 11:57:21 AM #
Unfortunately in 2.0 you could not have folder names larger than 7 chars...
You couldnt have INBOX.Drafts , etc...
I hope they added the ability to add a namespace to it!!

Looks like you cannot download it yet..

RE: VersaMail rocks
Altema @ 4/16/2003 2:27:13 PM #
Wish they would have offered a demo. There was no way to try out the former version, or this one apparently. Good thing IMAP does not matter to me.

Nice Upgrade

asiayeah @ 4/15/2003 11:51:42 AM #
I just can't wait to try the upgraded version.

The improvements look very significant to me. The two-line display and color support is eye-touching and pleasant to look at.

I have been using Versamail to hot-sync directly to an IMAP server for emails. The synchronization speed is not as good as it should be and there were several bugs in synchronizing large e-mails. I hope the bugs have been fixed as I have reported many times to Palm Support.

Does anyone know where is the Voice Memo 1.1? My Tungsten T has Voice Memo 1.0 only.

Voice Memo v1.1

Mead Lawson @ 4/15/2003 11:58:39 AM #
I just checked Palm's site, but it does not list an update to Voice Memo v1.0. The only audio update listed is for audio playback issues and is not associated with the Voice Memo app. Has anyone else found the v1.1 update?

The Competition

Scott R @ 4/15/2003 5:41:11 PM #
I own SnapperMail which I like a lot. One of the big things for me was the 2-line display. For some reason, very few email programs support this and I think it's the only way to go. 160 pixels (or 320 pixel-doubled pixels) is too low to try and squeeze both the subject line and the "from" field onto one line. Unfortunately, because this requires OS4.1 and up, Treo users are out of luck.

What's up with the red font colors and Times New Roman font face?

Sync via Bluetooth?

wookie @ 4/15/2003 9:40:54 PM #
This is my actual scenario. In my office, I use Outlook and Exchange for email. My PC has a USB Bluetooth dongle and I am using Tungsten T. From time to time I am away from my PC for meeting. Is it possible to have my email automatically and periodically sync to my Tungsten T via Bluetooth? I do not want to perform a full HotSync session just in order to get my email. Is there any simplier solution?

Maybe your Bluetooth installation is flawed.

It's Actually v2.5.1

Mead Lawson @ 4/15/2003 11:04:05 PM #
I also d/l'd it from PalmGear prior to them pulling the link. I installed it later in the evening and when verifying the installation, noticed the version number. It's actually v2.5.1, not simply v2.5. Sweet!

And, yes...the installation did proceed normally giving no indication this was a demo or trialware. It certainly looks like a few folks got lucky on this one!

VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL

drbutler @ 4/19/2003 7:12:36 PM #
On a Tungsten W, I can't seem to get the IMAP client to connect via SSL. Our corporate server has this as a required to protect passwords. Seems that Palm has gotten close, but I dont' see the setting. Does anyone know if this is an oversight, a setting I'm missing, or a fix is coming?

RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL
ggeoffre @ 4/20/2003 10:00:14 PM #
This is one of the only 'new' features that I am after, and the fact that there is not a trial version, and that the documentation is very limited is not good. Chapter 2 of the VersaMail 2.5 Handbook states...

[quote]
To retrieve incoming mail over a secure (Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL) connection, select Use Secure Connection check box. See "Using Secure Sockets layer (SSL)" in Chapter 5 for information on SSL.
[/quote]

When you goto chapter five you get the following information...

[quote]
When you set up an account in the VersaMail application, you are given the option of selecting SSL for incoming mail. See Chapter 2 for instructions.
[/quote]

http://www.palm.com/support/handbooks/versamail_25/VersaMail_25_ENG.pdf

It appears as if VersaMail only provides support for APOP and ESMTP, not Secure Password Authentication (SPA), which I believe is a Microsoft-proprietary protocol.

RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL
drbutler @ 4/22/2003 2:02:19 AM #
I also notice that the screens are different with a Tungsten W. I wonder if the SSL is only on the Tungsten T? Any news on when they will upgrade the os on the W? The only thing that will allow this as a viable Enterprise alternative to Blackberry is the SSL IMAP.

RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL
mbalcom @ 4/22/2003 9:46:53 AM #
I thought I read somewhere that SSL was a 5.x feature so it makes sense that it doesn't appear as an option on the 4.1 T/W.

RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL
ggeoffre @ 4/22/2003 5:41:10 PM #
I never could distinguish between what is already included in 5.0 and what is to come in 5.2...

http://www.palmos.com/dev/support/docs/palmos50/#Security

But if SSL IMAP support is your only requirement, have you tried PaPi-Mail? It works quite will with SSL IMAP servers on the T|T...

http://www.ses-soft.com/papi/PaPi-Mail/

There is also a slick little process that will accept incomming IMAP (or any other TCP packets), wrapper them in SSL, and send them on their way to an SSL IMAP server. its called Stunnel, the Universal SSL Wrapper...

http://www.stunnel.org/

Using the existing VersaMail 2.0 that came with my T|T, Stunnel, MochaPPP, and a Belkin USB Class 1 Bluetooth adpter, I can access my corporte SSL IMAP Server from anywhere in my house with my T|T.


RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL
drbutler @ 4/23/2003 3:20:44 PM #
I have tried PapiMail, but I think it wants to download every message on each check. I'll re-look at it. Thanks

Also, did you find a compiled version of Stunnel for palm? I'm trying to hunt down how to compile it. If I can get Stunnel working seamlessly on the Palm, I can promote Versamail which is my preference.

Does anyone know if there are plans to upgrade the Tungsten W's os to 5.x at any stage?



RE: VersaMail 2.5 and IMAP / SSL

Stunnel does not work on the Palm afaik, it is a service that would run on a machine somewhere on your local network. I run MochaPPP and Stunnel on the same machine that has a Belkin USB Bluetooth adapter attached. So this solution will not work once I start using the Sony Ericsson T608 on the SprintPCS netowrk on the road.

I have tried out the new VersaMail 2.5 on a T|T running PalmOS 5.0. The SSL feature is disabled (not present). So it appears that you must have PalmOS 5.2.1 in order to take advantage of the SSL capabilities of VersaMail 2.5. None of the docs specify that the SSL capabilities require PalmOS 5.2.1.

Versamail problems

flinker @ 7/14/2003 2:59:15 PM #
Hi,

I purchased VERSAMAIL 2.0 from PALM and have since discovered that:

1. Palm does not answer email for support
2. I got info that I can attach a 2Mbytes file to my email but anything over 50k does not transmit.
3. I would like to start Versamail from within my NSBasic application - passing email address and attached file name-but I donīt know how

Can you guys help me out?

Also -Can upgrade to VERSAMAIL 2.5 for free once I have 2.0?

Anyone succesful in using Versa Mail 2.0 with Lotus Notes running locally on desktop. That is, local synchronisation as opposed to using Notes in Dial-up or LAN mode?

Any tips would be great.

VersaMail sync with Outlook

A huge annoyance, and shortfall, with this is that deleting mails on my Palm Tungsten E does not result in the messages being deleted on my desktop mail (Outlook XP), even when the trashcan is emptied.

Does anyone know of a solution to this?
