palmOne has released a new version of VersaMail, its email application, for the Treo 600. However, this isn’t a free upgrade for current users of this smartphone.
Some versions of the Treo 600 come with Treo Mail, which provides basic POP email access. Now, with the release of VersaMail 2.7 for the Treo 600, both POP and IMAP are supported. The IMAP protocol is used by some ISP as well as many small- and medium-sized businesses for corporate email.
Key features in VersaMail 2.7 include:
- Automatic Mail Retrieval and Notification — VersaMail automatically downloads new messages and alerts users based on their instructions.
- Web Content Support — Read simple HTML messages or messages with colors or styles. Tap hyperlinks or any “www” sequence to automatically launch the Web Pro Browser 3.
- Inbox Management — VersaMail has extensive message-management features. Users can choose to get headers only, set message size limits, and set filters. Messages can be deleted on the smartphone, the server, or both. The Trash can be automatically emptied at preset intervals.
- Display Options — Display options allow users to see messages in one or two lines to view more messages or more detail, as well as select font size, read/unread colors, sorting options, and fields to display.
A complete list of features in VersaMail 2.7 can be found on the palmOne web site, where this application can also be purchased for $29.99.
