    I'm looking for an e-mail app with the following features:
    [list=1][*]Uses Mail's database[*]Can send e-mail over a wireline modem[*]Preferably has a better UI than Mail[/list=1]
    This thing should be able to pick up mail with either HotSync or a modem. I don't use my modem much, so it needs to be useful all the time, not just once in a while! Does anybody have any suggestions for a program like this?

    Thanks.

    I don't know if there are any that use Palm's Mail database and also allow direct mail access. Why is the Palm Mail database so important to you?

    Most 3rd party mail apps use their own mail database. I use Eudora. It allows direct mail access with a modem, or syncing a mail from their desktop application during hotsync.

    I use MultiMail Pro with my modem (ThinModem Plus) and have been very happy with it. It is, however, expensive ($39.95) but I was willing to pay the extra in order to be able to download and view attachments (specificlly Word attachments) which it does very well.

    There is a conduit that allows you to download your e-mail from your desktop during HotSyncs. It costs extra ($39.95) though you can get a price break if you buy them together ($59.95). I do not have the conduit and cannot comment on it. Here is the URL:

    As far as using Mail's database, I do not know if it does that or not (I suspect not). It does, however, link with Address Book so you can capture e-mail addresses from messages or get addresses from Address Book when composing a message.

    Because that's one way to guaruntee it will HotSync with just about any desktop e-mail app. I misspoke; I really just want it to work with Outlook.

    You can get Mail+ which works with the built in mail database. It offers some improvements over the built-in but I dropped it for Eudora, which costs $30 (I think) if you want it to synch to anything but Eudora Maill for the desktop. Give Mail+ a try though, its cheap at $10.95
