    I just had my Treo 300 moved over to a Sprint vision account. I currently use a Blackberry RIM device to send/receive email. I have been reading around this board an others about Eudora email ( http://www.eudora.com/internetsuite/eudora4palm.html .)

    Do you think I can chuck my RIM now ?

    Can I configure Eudora to check my email every X minutes ? Will I be notified when I receive email ?

    Does it allow for SMTP access or only POP ?

    If any of you have a better mail program you're currently using I'd really love to hear about it. I do NOT want a program that has to run on my desktop. It should be able to use POP/SMTP to send and receive my email.

    Alex,

    I believe the only email programs that would give you a "push" like expireince are treomail, basejet, and aileron. Basejet is in beta so it is free for now.

    You can use other email app in conjunction with a macro player that may be able "pull" email for you.

    I too am curious about SMTP/POP3 settings. For instance, at home I use dialup (MSN) and retrieve my [personal] domain email via my web hosting service's POP3 account. However, when sending email, I use MSN's SMTP.

    My main concern is not a matter of retrieving the email, but rather to send it. Does TreoMail or any other app allow you to utilize their SMTP server for sending out stuff? If not, since you're not dialing in, how can an internet SMTP (like MSN) authenticate you? Because for instance, it's been my experience that you can't use MSN SMTP unless you're connected to MSN directly.

    Does TreoMail have it's own SMTP settings for outgoing stuff?

    The problem with smtp is that most ISP blocksending mail through their smtp servers if you aren't current connected through the isp.

    You may be able to get your email using any old internet connection, but be able to send it on the same connection. Unless, the ISP lets you authenticate to the smtp server.

    I tried Eudora and BaseJet

    BaseJet: Nice approach but not there yet.
    It disconnects your data session after retrieving email. Makes sense for most devices but Treo 300 users do not normally disconnect. Couldn't get the SMS notify/push to work - it's supposed to though.

    Eudora:
    Can retrieve and send email fine. Supports smtp authorization required by mail.attbi.com. Does not automatically check email or react to SMS notification. I can't have a seperate reply-to and from address.

    Tried Aileron Personal Edition

    http://www.corsoft.net

    Solves the outbound SMTP authentication problem because Aileron provides an SMTP server for you. You only have to configure the inbound POP3 login.

    You have to check your email which requires two steps. No automatic checking or SMS response. However, my pop mailbox lets me forward a copy to another address so I'm gonna try forwarding to xxxx@messaging.sprintpcs.com so that I'll know to manually check my mail.

    It disconnects your session - a minor annoyance.

    It's a service: $49/yr. If this is the best email program I will pay for it.

    Does anyone know if TreoMail has it's own SMTP?

    Actually, Aileron will automatically check your email for you (you can set the interval--think it will go as often as 5 minutes). Also does multiple accounts.

    What I didn't like about it is that it wants to turn the modem off every time you exit it. This takes a couple of seconds. If you have it set to check your account frequently, Aileron probably is "on" when you want to use your 300. so if you want to access your calendar, you have to wait for Aileron to turn the modem off. I found myself using it just for manual checks, and felt I didn't want to pay $50/year for that. They say they are doing another build for the 300 that will address the modem turn off problem.

    I was able to use SMTP once I configured things correctly with Eudora. Our servers use POP-before-SMTP or POP AUTH technology that allows users to send mail if they have checked their email on our servers within the last 15 minutes. So far Eudora looks good. Is it possible to set it to check email every X amount of minutes ?

    Aileron's SERVER checks your email at 5 minute intervals.
    But, as far as I can tell, there's no way to automatically get it to the Treo 300 - except by manually using the "check mail" function.

    There's a setting named "Timed Access" which is not mentioned in the User Guide. I'm gonna turn that on and see what happens.

    re: Treo Mail
    I'm reluctant to try that because there's no mention of the 300 on any of the web pages - they only say it works with the 180 and 270.

    What's really odd about the modem thing is that Aileron will launch Blazer when you click on a web link, but it turns the modem off as a switches to Blazer and then Blazer sais "Do you want to connect?". I bet it won't take them too long to fix that.

    Aileron's "Timed Access" setting seems to be checking my mail at 10 minute intervals. Very cool.
