PushEffect by Qorefunctions another rb© approved review, this time it's PushEffect by http://www.qorefunctions.com. features as listed on their web site: Adds New Features to Messaging Application Push-Style Automatic Message Retrieval Keep EXISTING Email Account at GMail, Yahoo Plus, your ISP, etc. Messages Usually Arrive Within Seconds (No More Scheduled Send/Receive) Monitors Multiple Accounts Simultaneously (Personal, Work, etc.) Exchange Server / imap IDLE Server NOT required No Need to Keep PC Turned On with Redirector or Sync Software Running Automatically Sends Messages (No More Send/Receive) 1 Click Download of Attachments / Rest of Message (No More Send/Receive) New Message Notification Window (Like Email Caller ID - All Accounts including Outlook) User Selectable Sleep Period (So You Won't Be Disturbed!) Small Application Runs Directly on Device - Can Help Improve Battery Life! NO Monthly Service Fees & NO Advertising on Bottom of Outgoing Messages! besides from my Q having a corrupted registry (fixed with MR) the install and configuration is basic and straight forward + the Corefunctions web site has a good clear guide, there is also a help guide in the program itself. some screen shots: - shortcut in Start Menu - main screen - send/receive options - menu > options screen 1 - menu > options screen 2 - the about screen - "build-in" user guide the program has been out for quite a while and has proven itself to be stable and reliable. my personal experience: as i mentioned before the setting up was easier then i expected, initially i set this up with my Gmail account which was easy enough then i configured it for my work email which was a little more tricky, not because of PushEffect but because of it had to work with Yahoo, which took some tweaking and setting up filters there but now that it is working it is working ABSOLUTELY *great*, 99% of the emails arrive on my Q faster then in Outlook on my laptop. no more waiting for emails (or having the phone setup to poll for mail every xx amount of minutes with as a result a drain on the battery life) they get pushed close to instantly. and that is something that i really needed since i don't sit at my desk/pc 8 hours a day -it may look that way :}- plus i have customers that email me at night and this way i can promptly reply and i am sure they will be pleased with the response time.. we might re-instate my boss' old credo "we spoil you with our service". bottom line... for being on the go and being flexible and quick, PushEffect is amazing and in my opinion well worth the money.
