iambic Updates Email Client

iambic has announced the release of Agendus Mail, a new email solution for Palm OS devices. Agendus Mail delivers full email functionality to the users of iambic's award-winning, Agendus for Palm OS Professional Edition, personal information management program.

Agendus Mail provides full-featured IMAP support making the process of synchronizing e-mail folders between handheld and computer very simple. Operating just like desktop email programs, Agendus Mail connects directly to the mail server, eliminating the hassle of working through intermediary servers. It is fully compliant with popular email protocols such as POP, IMAP and SMTP. The software enables users to send and receive email messages, wirelessly and via synchronization.

"For the last ten years, iambic has been focusing on creating software solutions that enables users to unleash the power of their handheld devices," said Vidal Graupera, CEO and founder of iambic, Inc. "Our latest offering, Agendus Mail, provides a level of integration, ease-of-use and functionality that takes Agendus Pro to a whole new level."

Formerly known as iambic Mail, Agendus Mail, is tightly integrated with the award-winning, Agendus for Palm OS Professional Edition personal information management (PIM) program. Agendus Professional leverages the data from the native address, calendar, and to do list Palm OS application to offer a richer, more insightful experience.

Looking to build on the success of Agendus Professional, iambic listened to feedback from the Agendus user community and spent the last eight months building a mail solution that meets the needs of everyday and power users.

Features of Agendus Mail include:

  • Desktop and wireless email synchronization - the Agendus Mail conduit allows users to receive and respond to emails wirelessly or through their desktop application while "on-the-go," enabling them to work virtually.
  • Progressive email retrieval - Agendus Mail can be configured so that messages can be downloaded at regular intervals.
  • Send/Receive POP and IMAP emails with native desktop format attachments - A memory card is no longer needed, making the receiving of attachments simpler and more convenient. A mobile office application is required for opening and editing attachments.
  • Integrated SMS support - Provides users with a more robust way to use their enabled PDAs and smartphones running Palm OS 4.1 or higher. Short text messages up to 160 characters in length can be sent between mobile devices. Plus, SMS messages can be to multiple recipients at once
  • Optimized for popular handheld devices - iambic made sure that Agendus Mail could take advantage of the 5-way navigational pad built into popular devices such as the Treo, Tungsten and Zire, making one-handed operation possible.

Agendus Mail can be purchased for $39.95 USD [BUY]. Current iambic Mail users, can upgrade for a special price of $14.95, but for customers that purchased iambic Mail after June 15, 2004, the upgrade is free. For a limited time, all the customers that purchase or upgrade to Agendus Mail will receive a free copy of Agendus for Palm OS Professional Edition ($40 value).

I was a user of SnapperMail, however soon after my purchase I was informed that version 2 would soon be available at around another 50% cost.

I tested and liked Agendus Pro V8 so I bought it. It works great and the integrated mail is appreciated.

There are advantages to enjoy with an integrated product suite.

I recommend people to test Agendus Pro

Best Regards, mrv

With Agendus Pro we are talking about a complete Life-Integration.

iambic mail on Verizon Treo 600

Does anyone know if this will work with the "push" features on a VZW Treo 600?

Not so good. . .

I've been looking for an alternative to SnapperMail ever since the (rediculous) pricing of the IMAP version was announced. I've been playing with the demo of Agendus Mail and although it has some nice features, it's got way too many problems (at least on my Treo 600) for me to consider it at all.

5-way nav support is severley limited and unintuitive (having to drill down through the whole email just to get the cursor to the bottom icons?? Sorry, but no).

The "Cancel" button when receiving doesn't work at all. At least not when I reoeatedly tried to stop my IMAP account from synching.

Text attachments get shoved into the body of the email and can't be saved to card or into memopad like they can in SM. (big flaw)

It's a decent app, and I'll be watching it for updates, but as of now, I'll stick with sucky POP access on SM-- aside from IMAP, the version of SM I'm running is almost perfect.
