    NOTE: This post was transferred from Communications...

    Yesterday, I bought a 2nd Sprint Treo 650...a used one at a good price. One thing I did immediately was to install Chatter version 1143p. Previously, my old Sprint Treo 650 had constant problems of random resetting throughout the day whenever Chatter was operating...so I ended up deleting it.

    Now with my new T650, Chatter appears to be working fine without resets so far today. I will have a better idea on this as time goes by. I don't know whether it's a combination of getting a new Treo, or installing the current 1143p version, or some other reason. I have pretty much installed almost all the same programs as last time on my new T650, even more actually. Previously, I kept using the 1064 version, plus a bunch of various beta versions. All those previous versions kept resetting my old T650. I will keep my fingers crossed this time.

    Here are some questions:

    1) When using PdaNet with my laptop, I discovered that I must turn OFF Chatter, otherwise, I keep getting constant error messages both on my Treo and my laptop. Chatter appears to interfer with PdaNet. Is this a known problem? I discovered the solution of turning off Chatter on my own.

    2) How do you change the colors on the main inbox menu? For example, red color for un-read messages, and black for read messages (similar to VersaMail). Is this possible? For the life of me, I cannot figure this out. Also, is it possible to show the KB size of each email? I was used to this feature on Snappermail.

    3) When receiving large picture files, sometimes a jpeg picture gets stuck half way through downloading. I try deleting both the email and picture attachment, and the boxes all say zero emails. However, I know that in fact a picture file is stuck and hidden deep within Chatter because the size of Chatter (in the Info screen) has greatly increased from its original size (doubled or tripled). When I go to delete Chatter, and reinstall Chatter again, a large amount of memory has been freed up from having the hidden jpeg picture deleted from somewhere within Chatter's files. This exact same problem happened to me a couple times with the older 1064 version of Chatter.

    Even using FileZ is useless in finding the hidden jpeg picture attachment. The picture doesn't even show up in the standard Pics&Video app...it's nowhere to be found. This is a mystery to me. For now, I will have to continue using SnapperMail for downloading picture attachments (especially large files), because I've never had this problem with SnapperMail, although I have other huge problems such as deleted emails every so often with SnapperMail.

    Thanks,
    Casey

    1. Yes, you need to turn off Chatter; PDAnet doesn't play well with others.
    2. There's no way to color messages; you can't see the size until you "enter" the message to read it.
    3. There's no way to hide a file "deep within Chatter". If it's a file, it must appear in FileZ. I really don't know what this might be, but the file should be there.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for your help. This time around with my second T650, Chatter is working considerably better for me (without the resets). Having push email is so cool! It's nice to be able to respond to emails faster than before. Maybe the only downside is that battery life seems to be draining a bit faster. But I have 2 extra batteries and an extra AC charger, so it's not as much a concern. I am now using Chatter as my primary email app, and have relegated SnapperMail to second place...finally! Actually SnapperMail is still useful for sending and receiving large files without a glitch...for me at least. So Snapper still has a place on my Treo...but no longer in first place. By the way, the blasted SnapperMail still periodically deletes all my emails every so often without warning! This has happened more than several times...soooooo frustrating. Even the built-in VersaMail is sometimes useful for me, despite all the flack it takes. VersaMail is great for handling attachments sent by Outlook as a vCard (contact) forwarding, or as an iCalendar (calendar) forwarding. This means I can wirelessly download both Contact and Calendar attachments from my Versamail emails directly to my Beyond Contact (Outlook) app, or Palm's internal address book or calendar...whichever is my choice. I don't know if Chatter can handle vCard or iCalendar attachments as VersaMail can. Even SnapperMail has problems with this function, even though supposedly it can. Anyway Marc, keep up the good work. I'm glad to see you keep making improvements to Chatter.

    By the way, I meant to add that that I reaaaaaally like how Chatter can easily set up an account by simply choosing whichever provider in the drop down menu, such as AOL in my case. It was unbelievably easy...virtually brainless instant setup! Everything worked right on the first try without a glitch...very nice!

    Cheers, CC.
