    I don't usually make a note of new releases here, but the latest versions of ChatterEmail (2.1 and later) have options that dramatically improve battery life for many users - up to 40-50% savings in some cases. (The main performance enhancement is the default for new users.)

    Since many people are concerned about battery life, I thought the new version would be of general interest.

    Correct, according to the website, 2.1.3+ is the latest version and 2.2b1 is the latest beta.

    I meant 2.1 and later (when the enhancements were first released).... Indeed, 2.1.3+ is the latest stable version.

    And I thought I was running the latest beta - well, that has been changed! I forgot, I upgraded the 650 not the 700p. My wife loves your program.

    I am now back to the beta series.

    My battery life really is poor, most i can get is 14 hours. I use Verizon DSL so I need to use POP3, what are the optimum settings to assure that my battery life is optimum?

    thanks

    If you're just using POP3, battery life should be the same as if you were using any other email application. How often do you sync?

    every 15 minutes.

    I know there are some settings in Chatter that can enhance battery life, any suggestions?

    "Latency... more" in the Performance prefs.

    Ever since installing Chatter a long time ago, there has been a delay in turning the screen on and off. Sometimes I couldn't get the screen to turn off at all without pressing the button multiple times. This problem appears to be gone now. Was this an added benefit of the power-consumption fixes or am I imagining things?

    I also have noticed a GREAT improvement in battery life - THANK YOU!

    I have a question - I can use an exchange server (4smartphone) or my Chatteremail address to forward my .Mac mail to; they both work fine, but I only want to use one. My question is: Which is better for battery life and performance?

    The Exchange Mailbox constantly reads: "Listening" and the Chatteremail mailbox has an envelope - what's the difference? Do you have an opinion as to which will work better with the Treo and Chatteremail?

    IMAP push is more data/battery efficient than EX push in most cases.

    Great - Thanks; I still will use the exchange for cal/contacts but use my chatteremail address for email.

    Mark - I purchased Chattermail recently (last two or three weeks). Two questions, am I entitled to the 2.1.3 version (I have version 2.0.5+). If so, do I just go to your website and download and load it in on top of the older version?
    Thanks

    And it still has the bug with the sleep function too.

    Ok, I use the sleep function between 10p and 5:45 a.m. and it is going to bed and getting up like it should. Ben

    I use the sleep function too and its working fine for me on 2.1.1+. I am about to upgrade to beta 2.2b5, so we'll see how sleep works on it.

    I use the sleep function similar to bclinger and have not had a problem with its functionality in any of the released or beta products, including beta 2.2b5.

    I have it sleep from 10p to 6a every day. Its the only way to even possibly wake up with some battery left if I forget to charge the phone.
