Blackberry IMAP clients

PostBy: djackman On: Thu Nov 13, 2008 8:13 pm

Anyone have experience or recommendations for 3rd party IMAP clients for Blackberries?

I need to fully sync 3 different email accounts to one BB. All accounts are hosted on IMAP servers (2 Kerio, 1 Mdaemon)

Last time I tried the built-in BB IMAP client it was semi-broken, eg could pull messages but would not sync deleted/sent msgs back to the server.

My first suggestion would be to dump the BB and get a Windows based phone.

Secondly, try this:

Logicmail was on my list to test this weekend :D

They want to switch from Treo 750w phones to BB due to reliability issues with the Treo and the lack of storage on them. Even with a 2gb card they run out of room - the roadwarriors think it's desktop email in their hand, not a mobile mail reader. Not that it'll be better with a BB.

Outlook on WM5/6 suffers from a 'broken' IMAP implementation also. No sync of sent or deleted items.

Checked into Versalink - they balked when I asked about multiple account sync.

ChatterEmail fits the bill but a PalmOS phone seems like a step back.

IMO, if you're using a push device and not using Exchange, you're in the dark ages. It works so well that I can't imagine not having it.

Yes, WM & Exchange work flawlessly. Been using it over 2 years with almost no problems - took a while to get setup on SBS2003. (inherited config)

I know there are some hacks to allow multiple Exchange account sync to a WM device but am not comfortable using them in a production environment with "gotta have it NOW" road-warrior types.

Found "Flexmail4" http://www.pocketinformant.com/products ... p_id=mail& which looks rather promising as a full IMAP client for WM.

Thanks for your comments.
