SnapperMail 2.0 Final
Snapperfish Limited today announced the immediate availability of SnapperMail Version 2.0 for Palm Powered handhelds and smartphones. The Enterprise Edition of SnapperMail now includes support for retrieving and synchronizing e-mail with standard enterprise groupware e-mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino and Notes, and Novell Groupwise. SnapperMail has also introduced the access to Ghost messages; messages which have been deleted on the mail server, but can be preserved on the device or even archived to a memory storage card for immediate access to years of messages at any time.
SnapperMail version 2.0 features a number of new usability enhancements and is now available in four editions to meet the varying needs of mobile customers. There is a Lite version - featuring a single combined inbox, a Standard version which adds automatic mail retrieval and account to folder segregation, a Premier version including FIPs-compliant Certicom SSL security and memory card message storage, and the new Enterprise edition which adds IMAP4 corporate e-mail protocol support. All editions of SnapperMail include a starter-pack of attachment handling applications including support for Zip archives, Jpeg photos, and sending handwritten notes. Premier and Enterprise 2.0 editions gain SplashPhoto4 (handheld version), the best selling photo viewer for Palm OS.
"There has been an incredible rise in the interest in converged devices like the palmOne Treo 600 in the past year," said Will Lau, Managing Director for Snapperfish. "SnapperMail has been developed specifically for these devices, and we are proud to be lauded for helping to make these smartphones a viable alternative to bulky laptops for so many mobile workers. Tens of thousands of customers downloaded SnapperMail during our public beta, which is indicative of the immense interest our IMAP4 version has generated."
Along with the IMAP4 support in SnapperMail Enterprise Edition are additional features that allow customers to browse their remote corporate mail folders, set up and sync to an unlimited number of folders and subfolders on their device and even provides for synchronizing messages based on size, date, and other variables and automatic deletion of old messages.
All SnapperMail version 2.0 users benefit from a freshened user interface with new message status icons indicating new, read, forwarded, replied, and flagged status. Folder hierarchies are clearly seen in the new folder dropdown menu, and messages can now be selected discontinuously for deletion or other actions. Attachment support has also been enhanced, allowing native files to be attached from other applications without ever leaving the message composer. With this enhanced support, customers can now attach photos directly from built-in applications like the palmOne Treo 600s camera application.
