I was quite excited there for a minute - but I'm a bit put off by the enforced subscription method.

What we're all after, surely, is something simpler that just grabs email every xx minutes? No need for proxy servers. I know there might be a few extra bytes overhead, but I don't care - I'd rather keep it simple.

Maybe they could do MailX Lite?

Forced subscription aside, I think this app is great. I've previously used Active Mail on my UIQ and S60 phones, but MailX is in a whole other league. And as it auto'magically' recognises your default e-mail account(s), it is also a breeze to set up. For those of us who use e-mail quite a bit, I think MailX is a must-have.

I wish it had a visual notification option for new messages though, and not just audible.

OK, so I got fed up with waiting for someone else. Thanks to the magic of OPL and a couple of spare hours this afternoon, I present an early beta of Automail. See the news release on the main page after 4pm today.

Question

Does MailX connect only to "my" mailservers or does it connect to some 3rd party server that actually downloads the emails and then "forwards" them to my communicator...?!?

Hi, it seems I don't understand, but what's the advantage of this application? Doesn't the communicator bring an email client?
And about this 'push' feature, I don't understand how it could be done, given that most operators use NAT, hence making almost impossible to use servers on phones...

Hi,

Yes, the Communicators have an e-mail client, but you have to check for new e-mails manually. What MailX does is let you receive those e-mails automatically at the times given by you. So you can for example configure MailX to check for new e-mails ever minute, or every hour, or just between the hours 09:00 - 14:00 etc. - you get the idea.

Pushing means that you're constantly connected to the MailX server through GPRS/EDGE or a Wi-Fi connection and when an e-mail is sent to one of your accounts, the MailX server will automatically 'push' the e-mail to your device.

I don't know what NAT is, but the MailX server is just a place for e-mails to go trough before they get 'pushed'/'polled' to the device.

I hope that made sense... All this is explained more thoroughly in the Help file within the application.

yes, that's because stupid Nokia did not implement this feature by themselves into the default email client of 9500 device. For example SE P900 knows this by default. (you shouldn't spend your money for things that would be normal/natural)

Just realised that there ought to be a URL in here now that the news item has rolled off.

Automail is freeware and lives at http://3lib.ukonline.co.uk/automail.htm

The Pxxx e-mail client only lets you schedule your e-mail retrieval for three times a day, no push-email there. Besides, the Pxxx e-mail client won't even let you view HTML e-mails - which the Commmunicators handle like a charm.
