    I need to see pics. Please post some pics each time you say you have a new service so we can know what we are getting ourselves into.

    Thanks!

    Please download the latest version, which just went out. We just went alpha, and created a new thread for that.

    Please see our new thread. We would *much* prefer that people shared their own screenshots. This is free software.

    Thanks.

    The product is completely different since you took those screenshots.

    Security and automatic downloads/attachments

    From our other thread (I don't know how to consolidate threads ... )

    We've been asked why we give you the option to download links but don't do it automatically. The reason is the same as the reason that BlackBerry doesn't do it: it's inherently insecure. When you browse, you choose what links to click on. When you get email, if your viewer automatically downloads images, then in effect someone else is clicking for you. That way, spammers can track whether you have opened their email, or worse put a virus on your phone. We provide you with the option of viewing the link before you click on it.

    Writing your own attachment handler is even worse unless you link it to a powerful antivirus program -- which BlackBerry probably does when you use their Attachment Service via your phone. That's why we are carefully considering what to do with attachments.

    Since many BlackBerry users have sensitive company information on their phones, we thought that security was an important issue.

    We got too many requests for image downloads, so we added image download as a menu item inside the email viewer.

    Feature requests?

    Hello,

    We have currently put attachments on hold because we don't want to interfere with BlackBerry's attachment service, which will always be top of the heap.

    Does anyone have feature requests?

    There hasn't been much said about this program in a while and
    I don't think there website is even up and running anymore.
    Have you tried Empower mail viewer (http://www.getempower.com/Empower_HTML_Mail_Viewer.php)
    this is the one I use. And there is a whole section for it here
    on PinStacks (http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/f171-empower.html)
    Needed to get a replacement 8330 Curve again, so I got a New pin and it's in my profile... Got 8330m now!
