    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — 11/30/2006

    Continuing its leadership in mobile data, Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced it is improving mobile messaging for its customers with the launch of Sprint Mobile Email, a new downloadable email client powered by SEVEN. The application provides easy access to multiple email accounts in one place. Users can access their accounts from well-known providers like AOL, Windows Live and Yahoo! all by using Sprint Mobile Email. Customers can also add other POP and IMAP email accounts to access through the service.

    "With Sprint Mobile Email, Sprint customers now have one place to go to check all of their email right on their wireless phones," said Jack Baker, director of wireless data messaging and communities for Sprint. "By making mobile email look and act closer to the desktop email experience, Sprint is giving its customers a familiar and easy way to access multiple email accounts while on the go."

    Sprint Mobile Email is available now for download at no additional charge to Sprint data subscribers on select Sprint and Nextel phones. Sprint expects to make the service available on additional phones in the future. With the service, Sprint customers can view each email account they have set up on a separate tab at the top of the screen. By clicking each tab, the customer can view his or her inbox from that particular provider, as well as open, delete, reply to, forward and send emails.

    Additional features of Sprint Mobile Email include:

    * The ability to compose messages while outside data coverage, such as on an airplane, and save them for later sending.
    * The ability to view other folders such as sent messages, deleted messages and drafts.
    * The option to enable push mail notification to automatically synchronize the user's mailbox whenever a new message arrives. Standard text messaging rates apply when this option is enabled.
    * The option to enable mail alerts to receive an audible alert whenever a new message arrives. Standard text messaging rates apply when this option is enabled.

    The features sound pretty basic to me. An alert when mail comes? cooool...

    That said - it sounds to me like this is for phones vs. for Treos.

    I must admit that I didn't read the release too closely before my initial post & calling Sprint CS. All I noticed was that it did push and supported IMAP:-) The killer for Treo's is that it requires java to run. It is d/l from the content manager|IM & Messaging on your phone. If it (Sprint EMail) doesn't show up as an option, then your phone is not supported, yet. This is the case with the Treo 650.

    Does anybody have a java app to post? I use Chatter, but would like to play around with a new app. If anybody could post a prc file, I would appreciate. Thanks

    This sounds very similar to Cingular's java app "Cingular Mobile Email". I currently use it on my Motorola L2. It's a fairly decent app in that you get alerted within seconds whenever you have a new email in either AOL, Yahoo or Hotmail. However, it does not let you view attachments, and every once in a while it will not even let you open a certain email -- usually ones that have complicated HTML or embedded pictures. It works decent on a regular handset -- much better than the alternative which is using the wap browser, but it does not compare to a regular smartphone email client.

    It's not a text message, an SMS from Sprint/Sevens servers activates the software on the device which then pulls down the email. You get your email in through the new software.

    Apparently this email application isn't available on Treo 700p? I went to Sprint's Digital Lounge and it wasn't there...
