New Versions of SnapperMail Available

SnapperMail, the Palm OS email client with features optimized for smartphones, has just been updated. The new version 1.9 supports handhelds with larger displays and a number of other improvements.

New features include support for searching messages, broader SSL compliance, and long awaited support for 480x320 resolution found in many of the latest wave of OS 5 devices such as the Palm Tungsten T3, Sony Clie NX/NZ/UX series, and the Tapwave Zodiac.

SnapperMail 1.9 marks the last major release in SnapperMail's POP3 roadmap. Internally, the company is focusing attention onto its long anticipated IMAP technology, slated for release as SnapperMail version 2.0 near the end of Q1 2004.

Version 1.9 is a free update. Existing customers can download the update. A free 30 day trial is also available. Due to popular request a less expensive version of SnapperMail, dubbed SnapperMail Lite, was released last month. Lite shares many of the powerful features found in the standard version but omits auto-fetching and account segregation. It is available $29.95.

Once IMAP support with SSL is working I am totally buying this!

You should try it anyway - you may want to buy SM even before it supports IMAP. I have tried VersaMail, InBoxToGo and AgendusMail, but Snappermail is my favourite. Very easy to configure and use, and a good interface that supports fingers as well as stylii.

I use it with DTG rather than QO, and it does a good job of handling attachments.

And the update installed without a hitch, which I can't say about every product :-)

IMAP is essential to me, so I am sticking with Versamail right now. Is there any major advantage to use Snappermail? I don't think I would use the finger navigation feature, which makes the screen a bit oily.

Versamail has the advantage that it got bundled with most PalmOne devices and Snappmail is pretty expensive...

With great power comes great responsiblity.

palmOne says that there is no demo available for VersaMail. I had attempted to get a demo in the past before Snapper came along. VersaMail was included with my current device and looks like it it is reasonably competent. However, after using SnapperMail, I just can't go back. It's not that VersaMail is bad or anything, it's just that going back to a sedan after getting comfortable with a Ferrari or a Porsche is... well, you get the picture.

STARTTLS seems to work

I just tried the new SnapperMail and am happy to report that STARTTLS works with my configuration of sendmail. I could not get the default Handspring Mail application to do this. This solves my problem of not wanting to send my username and password in the clear to my mail server.
