    His program does sell itself and imap, always on does not suck down battery life, though it does affect it. Mine is on from 5:30a or so until 6-8p or so and the battery hits normally around 45-50% - not bad for all day long. In addition, it lets you define a generic SMTP or one for each account. As for to counter-intuitive - gosh, it is as easy as SnapperMail.

    As for each suggestion - there are a few he has not implimented - those that he does are at the request of his user base and by doing so, shows that he is responsive to his users. He is much more responsive than Snapper's crew.

    Hey Marc,

    Honestly, if you wanna make some serious money with your program keep it simple. You know who you remind me of? That little annoying MS Office Paper clip. Your trying so damn hard to be helpful it's not working. You don't have to listen to every little suggestion that comes up.

    Seriously, I think you scare off a lot of the new users with your preferences. You assume everyone has read through your treocentral and mytreo.net threads.

    Being responsive is great, but with anything in life, you can over do it.

    treosome -

    You're wrong about having to forward, you're wrong about replying using the account you were mailed to, and well, without examples, I'm not sure what you mean about the preferences.

    I actually find Chatter's prefs very simple to use and understand. The prefs for datebk6, now, that's another story!
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    I am trying out Chatter (great thing about 30 day trials), and like it except for one thing. I am running it on my Treo 700p and when it is accepting pushes, it chews through batteries like crazy. I would guess that without a charger, I would have only half to 3/4 of a day of battery life!

    Is there a setting that can reduce the battery drain?

    Disable the push thing and have it poll on a set schedule. I take the lazy way out and put it on charge when in the car - when driving I have at least 15 minutes of down time during which it can be fed. Three feedings a day with a good amount of email and lots of use with HanDBase.

    You can also try turning on Efficient Sync in the Connections Preferences. That might reduce battery drain and still allow you to take advantage of push functionality.

    Ok, some weirdness going on with Chatter for me. This has happened with the six Treo 700Ps I've had.

    When I get an email with link(s) in it and I scroll down the email reading it, once I get to the link and it gets highlighted, it automatically opens that link. Anyone else experiencing this? Is there a fix?

    Are you using Chatter or Snapper?

    I can't make that happen; is it only with one particular email?

    It's with every email I receive w/ a link in it.

    I have been trying Chattermail for the last few weeks (I have been a Snapper user for 2 years or so) as an alternative to pull exchange emails at work. My SnapperMail database is being corrupted and I sense that it something to do with both programs sharing my Contacts. Due to this, I run multiple backups (to my SD card) per day so I will have a clean, recent backup with me at all times.

    Has anyone else seen this or know of this type of problem?

    Thanks.

    ralerner - Have you tried using the EX plugin with Chatter? You can probably get your Exchange mail pushed to you.

    I've tried both Snapper and Chatter (I also tried Agendus Mail). I had read tons of great things about Chatter, and the price was much better than Snapper (especially considering the lifetime upgrades for free). I initially tried Chatter and Agendus, and skipped Snapper, simply because I didn't like the price. Ok, so Chatter was supposed to have all of these great features, and everyone seems so happy with it -- however, I couldn't get past the fact that I didn't like the Chatter interface from the get-go. I mean, I really tried to like it. Truly I did. I even have tried Chatter on two separate occasions (once a few months ago, and once in the last month after a hard reset). I knew Versamail wasn't cutting it for me, so I needed something better. I tried messing with the settings in Chatter, but no matter how I looked at it, the program just didn't feel comfortable to me. I didn't like the way it looked or functioned (and I've been a computer geek for nearly the past 30 years, and I'm a technology specialist by profession, so I'm no newbie to software). Also, I noticed that when I tried to view .jpgs in Chatter, my Treo would reset. None of the other mail programs I've used have done this.

    I also tried Agendus Mail, and although I liked the interface much better than Chatter, there were features that I wanted that were missing (mostly the ability to save to the SD card, and the fact that when I tried deleting messages off the server, it really didn't delete them -- the same problem I've noticed with Versamail).

    Ok, so I finally broke down and tried Snapper. Like I said before, I was hesitant because I just didn't like the price. However, I realized once I installed it, Snapper was EXACTLY what I was looking for (it figures that I'd like the expensive one). The interface was very, very comfortable, the features of the program were great, and I could archive my mail to the SD card. I knew right away this was the program I wanted. I even fought the notion of buying Snapper for the first few days of the trial, still looking for something less expensive -- but for me, I never found anything I liked better. So I bought it -- and glad I did.

    I've read some posts about database corruption with Snapper, and thankfully I haven't come across this yet. I know some people would argue that Chatter is better. For them, I'm sure it is. I don't need pushmail (which I understand that Chatter has and Snapper doesn't), and I always check my mail manually, so even background checking isn't an issue for me (although I know Snapper can do this). I just know that so far, I've been very, very happy with Snapper. Personal preference, I'm sure.

    For push mail I cant wait for Sprint to come out with the 700wx!! I will prob like the Win version better? Then will try using Flexmail or something else. I just purchased Chatter & since I NEED push mail & for me the interface etc is ok.

    I do not know if this is a Chatter problem or something else??? Anyone else encounter this??

    Usually this only happens to incoming text & voicemail notifications:

    The notification comes in & I hear the selected ringtone for a second then the alert goes to the notification manager. Sometimes the sound plays for the full length & sometimes it does not. It is very annoying to not hear the sound for the full length since a sound for a second is sometimes not long enough. I can send 5 sms tests to me & sometimes all 5 will sound fine 20-30 second sound or all 5 will only sound for a second.

    Chatter is the only app that is always connected or trying to connect. My versamail syncs every 2 hours so doubt its that.

    Funny thing is that most users prefer Chatter's interface to Snapper, but obviously this is a matter of taste.
