Product Info


A couple of months ago, Handspring introduced Treo Mail, an email service and client. Treo Mail is available in two editions: internet edition for synchronization with POP mail accounts and corporate edition for synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Servers.

I'm reviewing Treo Mail Internet Edition (TMIE) here. Handspring has a very strong first offering here, and though right now Treo Mail feels more like a stopgap before GPRS and always-on email, it's a pretty good email client for the average joe user.

Handspring makes installation easy by providing a downloadable wizard that guides you through the hot sync, installation, and reset.

Setting up your pop settings is equally easy, but don't try to do it on your Treo. TMIE's settings and filters are stored on Handspring's servers, and you have to surf over to their web site to set them up. The interface is perhaps a bit too complex to make it convenient to use with Blazer.

Otherwise setting up your account is easy, especially if you're using one of the big ISPs or Email providers - Handspring knows their default settings.

Finally, even more frustrating than the web-only setup is the fact that TMIE only works with one email account.
