Finally using VersaMail

by Volker Weber


VersaMail is one of these programs I have been ignoring for a long time. It came with Clyde but I never bothered to install it. Boy, was I missing out on something. This sucker lets me connect back to my Domino server via IMAP and send out mail directly to my ISP. A neat way to check on eMail without even walking over to a computer. And obviously much faster.

I have put up a small Bluetooth access point by connecting one these Acer dongles to my server and turned on IP routing there. That's all it took for a nice access point once Palm had solved the issue I was having with the stack in the device.


Sounds awesome... One question though that I ask almost every time I hear someone sending out mail through a Domino server using the regular internet mail protocols (IMAP, SMTP in this case):
When you send a message from your Palm, do you also have the option to keep and file it as saved mail in your Domino mail file? Or is it automatically stored but not filed in any foler? Or even worse, do you have to send yourself a bcc in order to have a record?

Just wondering,

IMAP can sync any folder with a server, both ways. With VersaMail I simply to a bcc, since the program allows me to do so automatically.
