    optimizing browser and email

    Advertisement



    Hi, new to the forum - this place is awesome. I love my 8300 so much - I am completely addicted. Just wondering if there was any way to optimize emails and browser - when I receive emails from 3rd parties that have images, etc, after I open the email there is just a link. Is there any way to set it up so images and everything show up right when I open the email?

    I've managed to get in on the free offer for Empower.

    I really like BB Smart:

    I tried Empower too, but I prefer the BB Smart. I purchased the full version after
    the trial ended.

    Great program. You get the full images, links everything!

    Interesting...Do I visit these respective links using my phone, or pc? And these will optimize my email so I see everything?

    You can vist these via your PC and load OTA (over the air) via your phone easily. Yes, they will both allow you to see everything.

    Quick question. I like the idea of enabling images, however, is it possible to set an option so that images larger than XXX size don't get loaded? I frequently get 2mb+ images emailed to me and I'd like to be able to block those and only open them if I need to.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the information Lava Girl - Sorry to be so stupid, but how do I load OTA? Let's say I definitely want to purchase the one you use, what is the easiest way of getting it on my BB. Thanks!

    as far as I know, you can't do that. You can either set all images to load, or none.


    btw, i tried BBSmart and i liked it but i noticed that Empower is MUCH MUCH faster with opening emails. BBSmart took about 5-10 seconds to open emails with pictures and links in it. Empower opens it much faster. Just something that I noticed with those 2 programs.

    No worries, no question here is stupid

    I went to the link I sent you and selected the option for a txt msg to be sent to my phone with
    the link. This is the easiest way to get the correct link.
    Then once the message comes through to your phone, open it "get link" and follow the steps to
    download it to your phone.

    When your trial is up you will have the option to purchase the full version.

    I tried Empower and BB Smart and didn't notice any difference in speeds. I prefer BB smart just because it offered more font and color options as well as some other things.
    Just a personal preference. Either program works great.
