    I tried both BBSmart and Empower Pro. BBSmart has a noticeable lag when you open a message - I guess it is formatting on the fly. I found this lag quite annoying.

    Empower has some sort of intelligent pre-caching feature - there is zero lag when opening a message. I purchased Empower Pro.

    Empower is the way to go, hands down in my opinion.

    I've been using Empower since the beginning and have to say I am totally happy!!
    In my opinion Empower is the best and support is top notch

    Does anyone know if Empower is still runnning any promotions for the purchase of the full App, i know before there was a discount of 15 bucks but that was before the end of the year.... I already emailed them, but no response yet (im not trying to be cheap, i was just curious)

    Re: Empower Email -Vs- BBsmart email

    used both and choose bbsmart for some personal features that they had, I also like that bbsmart updates are all free which lately with empower they are charging for new updates. Most had choosen empower b/c most that have been using it since day one all received a free beta tester license. if both have free trial still try them both to see which one fixs you better b/c they are both great apps.

    yeah it does............ but you can switch back, theres a option in the menu that says toggle HTML and will show you the email in default view and there's also an option, if you go to advanced optiond where you can set it up as your default viewer or not.

    Re: Empower Email -Vs- BBsmart email

    Empower definitely loads much quicker, I did the trial version for both and with BBSmart it was getting annoying, waiting for the images to load. So I will be purchasing Empower shortly, I emailed the company about the discount and they told me to wait and see if they can give me the discount that ended on 12/31/07, but if not I am just going to order it cause I hate the plain BB email.

    Re: Empower Email -Vs- BBsmart email

    I think the question still stands, will Empower charge every time they release? I only purchased the std version (I can't see paying $30 for this feature) but with Pro out I figure Std will be left as is.
