    I work for a large company and we use lotus notes. I have a Treo600 with SnapperMail. Is it possible to retrieve my corporate e-mail with the Treo and SnapperMail combination? Please advise. Thanks.

    It depends on how your company has setup lotus notes. In order to use snappermail you would need pop3 access to your mail server (or using snappermail beta, you could use IMAP instead of pop3). Your company would need to allow access to your server from the internet, which, sorry to say, is not very likely. There are several workarounds to this, most popular being "redirector" software, which requires your desktop at work to have Notes open so it can forward your email to your treo. I would check with my IT department first, before setting up a redirector as it could be against company policy. Good luck!

    My company has POP3 access (though the sysadmin didn't realize it!) and so I set up Snapper to pick up my personal IMAP and POP3/Lotus work mail.

    Beautiful piece of software.
    everything was beautiful and nobody hurt.

    mNotes is highly configurable to do this, too.

    How can you find out what you company has set up? I have Lotus email at work and am not sure how they have it set up. From what they told me, IMAP is not enabled. Any way to check on my own? How can I check if there is POP3?

    I use a program called WirelessMail to forward all my Lotus Notes mail to my personal POP3 account. I then use SnapperMail to retrieve the email from the POP3 account. Here are the cool things about WirelessMail:

    Free Demo for 60 days

    Install it on your work PC and it activates an “agent” on your company’s Lotus server

    The agent forwards your mail automatically even if your PC is turned off

    The forwarded mail retains the Subject and Sender info

    There is an option to include or exclude attachments

    If you reply to a forwarded Lotus email with Snapper you can make it look like your reply came directly from your Lotus account.

    Check it out at http://martinscott.com/WirelessMail

    Check on Pylon. This is part of AvantGo. They provide nice integration with Notes but I am not sure if they offer any desktop based solution.

    You can probably check it yourself by determining if the respective ports are open on your company's server. By coincidence, I just did this myself the other day and now I have Palm Mail sending & receiving via the Domino server.

    Here's a port list: http://www.spirit.com/Resources/ports.html

    If you need a port scanner, http://www.tucows.com is a good place to look.

    After scanning our server, I found POP3 and SMTP services, but no IMAP. Palm mail is working OK, but I'm going to switch over to Snapper Mail, since it allows me to selectively download entire messages. When using POP mail, I like to DL only a small portion of each msg and then go back and DL the entire msgs I'm interested in reading.

    So how do I find out what my company's server address/name is so that I can run a port scan? I only access it from the Lotus Notes here at work and a webmail they have set up.

    My company does not support Palm's. Only blackberries so I am out of luck.

    (the following is for Notes client ver 6.5.. not sure about earlier versions)

    With your Notes inbox open, choose File-> Mobile -> Edit Current Location, then choose Servers tab. Your company's server will be listed under Home/Mail server.

    It's the same in earlier versions.
