    i thought send/receive all was the manual way to do that for Activesync. does it not just use the times that you have set up in Activesync?

    i really just prefer the one line/coumn layout that you can't force tmail to do.

    yeah, scott it does try too much maybe w/ the graphics, but the customization is SO much better

    Yeah, I use my email A TON on my Q and I want more flexibility in the options that tmail gives me. Other features as referenced above.

    I bought the Q so I could get my email on my phone. I don't need Nintendo gaming or any of that other stuff.

    One other thing I did like that I forgot to add was the spell checker!

    And not sure if it's related or not yet but my Outlook mail has started giving me "server certificate has expired...contact your exchange support chumps" and my Q will also say it's time is not the same as the servers..please remedy!

    yep--that too!

    TF, I haven't seen that. I have been seeing a lot of "can't find shortcut" but that was occurring before I installed this Flexmail...

    There is some interesting discussion on the WEBIS forum about the reason FlexMail keeps closing itself and what to do about it...

    If anyone knows how I can move my one gazillion folders into a place where I can use them on my PC but they don't have to show up on my Q, that would be fabulous...

    haha..yea, that can't find shortcut thing I've been seeing allot lately too! But another click finds it..

    and cant you just put the folders under "personal folders" in Outlook (if that what we're talkin!)? That way they are on your pc's hard drive and not the server to be seen by your Q?

    I let FM go yesterday...was gonna keep till it expired but couldn't wait!

    I'm trying this now. Good idea!!

    :(

    Apparently, FM can get automatically closed out depending on what else you run. IF getting rid of my one bazillion folders will speed up the initial load time, then I'm keeping it.

    Holy Heck Yeah!

    TreeFrog--that did it!! I set up some personal folders and moved all my files (which is folders with folders and folders) to it and they don't sync to Handheld and now Flexmail opens in about 5 seconds... Now, that's doable!!

    :)

    I've just tried to give the trial of Flex Mail a go but I can't get gmail through IMAP to work. I have it working on the Q's default email but not through Flex Mail.

    Anyone have GMAIL IMAP working through flexmail?

    glad you got it working. Fastmail and gmail IMAP work very well on FlexMail for me.

    I just switched to Q9c and am trying out the native email b/c it's supposed to support HTML but I still prefer the FlexMail interface.

    I'm loving all the extra features but there's a lot to learn. The first thing I notice is that it doesn't update the email counter on my home screen. Is there a work around for this?

    IIRC it only counts Pocket Outlook. I quit using a screen with a counter and relied on an envelope icon.

    Also, I recall that viewing a txt in ExtremeText didn't reset that counter to zero.

    Have you checked out the forum? the developer is very active and responsive.
