Chatter Update

Mon Aug 30, 2004 - 12:56 PM EDT - By Michael Ducker

Marc Blank, the developer of IMChatter, has been working on a new IMAP email client called Chatter Email. This was previously announced here. Almost two weeks later it's time to put an update on the front page regarding Chatter Email.

Chatter Email is now in its 9th beta. Many bugs have been squashed in these beta releases thanks to the help of users testing it. If you are still using an older version it is highly recommended that you upgrade. You can download the latest beta and tell Mr. Blank what you think about it in the new TreoCentral Chatter Email Developer Forum.

Chatter email is expected to have a one time cost of $25. Its features are listed below.

  • True �push�, two-way syncing of messages between Treo and IMAP server (on compatible IMAP servers).
  • Timed �sync� on servers without �push� capability.
  • Up to 64 folders supported; folders can be on different servers or even different accounts on the same server. Up to 8 of these can be online at any time (i.e. getting pushed mail).
  • Syncing of sent messages back to the IMAP server
  • Full background and �while asleep� operation (i.e. while not in the Chatter application or the Treo is sleeping)
  • Full asynchronous operation (i.e. works sending and receiving while you are performing other activites on your Treo)
  • Wide range of notification options, including custom ring tones (per folder), vibration options, and LED flashing
  • IMAP SSL support
  • Attachment notification (attachment reading is not available at this time)
  • Multiple message selection (delete, move, mark read/unread, and �fetch more� of arbitrary message sets)
  • NO third-party �intermediate� server required.
  • NO desktop redirector required.
  • NO recurring fees.
