FlexMail 2007, by WebInformation Services is a powerful email client for your PocketPC/Windows Mobile smartphone, or PDA. This impressive program can handlePOP3 and IMAP, while also handling SMS, HTML, and even Google's Gmail.When I got my very first "smartphone" I looked at lots of emailprograms. Not one of them would do all the things I wanted except forFlexMail. Back then it was called WebIS Mail, and it's gotten400% better since then.

I believe that FlexMail 2007 could stand up to many email clientsused on PCs. It's powerful and gives you a huge range of options. Sinceit can handle multiple accounts I set it up to handle all of my mainemail accounts. You can set general parameters for handling email,position your email accounts in the order you want them, and much more.FlexMail 2007 flat out impressed with the wide range ofconfigurable options it gives you. You can configure it one way, I canconfigure it another, and both of us will be happy.

FlexMail 2007 is powerful, full-featured, and easy-to-use. It hassupport for SSL and SOCKS, which many mobile email clients do not. Itcan handle specified ports, TLS, different "signatures" for eachaccounts, and more. You can define rules to help filter youremail the way you want. It also lets you change the views, test youraccount settings, do immediate sends, and so much more.

FlexMail 2007 has a built-in spell checker, which I find veryuseful when doing emails on a mobile device. You can setup the programto synchronize all your email by size, age, and more. I have it downloadmessage headers. Then, if there are emails I want to see completely, Ijust select "Mark For Download" and on the next pass those messages willbe downloaded for me. FlexMail 2007 works beautifully withpush email, lets you view HTML messages, and use flags.Impressive.

FlexMail 2007 is, without question, the most impressiveemail program I've seen for mobile devices. It has it all and you owe itto yourself to try it out. It resides on my Treo 700w and I plan to keepupgrading whenever they improve it. I'm so impressed with FlexMail2007 that I'm making it a Dr. File FinderFavorite and awarding it the Tucows Editor's ChoiceAward for excellence.
