    email: IMAP or Thunderbird conduit?

    Greetings,

    I'm trying to determine which (if any) email application I can use.

    I need to sync (via conduit, not wirelessly) with either an IMAP server or my Thunderbird (Mozilla) email client.

    My research tells me that I may have success with Agendus Mail (via Thunderbird), and that the only other option *was* MultiMail (via IMAP server), which is now off the market and unavailable.

    Does anyone have any information on this?

    TIA,
    Stuart

    Don't know if either will do exactly what you want, but you should look into Versamail and Snappermail. Both do IMAP. Not sure what is meant by syncing (via conduit) with an IMAP server. I would think you need some kind of client in between. I like Mozilla too, but you may also consider the new Eudora which apparently has improved IMAP support and I thought always had Palm mail syncing via a conduit.

    SnapperMail does not have a conduit for syncing with Email software on personal computers. It is a wireless only client.

    Thanks for your replies.

    The main reason I don't want the wireless-only option is that I have absolutely no idea how much Verizon will be charging me for data. I didn't sign up for any data service. I switched from an old Single Rate East to National Access, and now their website delivers an error message when I try to view my account settings. I *can* connect to the Express Network. Once I see my first new bill (since getting this phone), perhaps I'll go with wireless.

    I tried Snappermail last night. It's fine (though I wish I could move the scroll bars to the left since I'm left-handed).

    Tried Agendus Mail last week. It was a little bit flashier, and it could sync with Thunderbird. However, the day after I installed it, my phone crashed hard. I'm going to play with Snapper for a few days and then try Agendus again.

    It looks like conduit-based IMAP is a no go for now, so I'll have to settle for what is available (or determine that handheld email isn't worth the expense).
