Electric Pocket Releases Mailer POP3 Email App
Electric Pocket has released Mailer, a POP3 email application. Mailer offers a multi-account email engine that gives users control over which email messages are received and how much of each message. It also provides an option to reply to an email with a phone call. It's available now for $30.
Mailer has been designed to be very easy to configure. There's no need to enter complicated server addresses. The user just enters their name, email address and password and Mailer will work out the rest.
Users can pick and choose which email accounts to check and how much of each message to download.
On handhelds equipped with Bluetooth, infrared, or built-in telephony, Mailer gives users the option of replying to email messages with a phone call. Thanks to its integration with the Address Book, the call is automatically dialed from within Mailer.
It runs under Palm OS versions 3.5 or 4.x, including the Handspring Treo line.
"In designing Mailer we took a fresh look at the real needs of mobile email users,” said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s co-founder and Chief Product Officer, “We wanted to get away from the desktop email model and try some new things, like combining email and voice calls. Mailer is all about communications in a way that makes sense for people on-the-go, and the reaction from early users has been very favorable.”
