PicoMail21PicoMail has been upgraded to version 2.1. There are no obvious changes so I can’t say what’s new in this version athough I suspect that there are some performance and stability enhancements.

PicoMail is a fast, free (ad-supported) POP, SMTP, IMAP email program for Java phones that works with most email providers. It features simple account configuration. For major email services including Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail you just need to enter your email address and password and PicoMail takes care of all the complicated POP or IMAP settings.

PicoMail provides unlimited email accounts, viewing of Word, Excel, PDF, WordPerfect, video and image attachments, HTML email (reformatted as a single column) , images, including PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP and TIFF formats, security via SSL, keyword search and automatic spam filtering.

  1. None yet.

  2. Thanks… I downloaded 2.2 still had to configure. Had to type: smtp.mail.yahoo.com, then after research, found out the port is 25. It now works great. Able to send&rcv.

    • Is your’s an @boostapps.comyahoo.com account. It should work with those. If you have an ISP branded (AT&T DSL, etc) account I could understand Pico Mail having trouble recognizing that it was a Yahoo account.

      Anyway, glad you got it to work.

  3. Hi… Need help downloaded newer version. Looks great on my incognito. But i am not sure how to figure out the smtp port for my yahoo account. Can you help? I am unable to send because of this error.

  4. Hi,

    Is there a way to change the dark blue text colored links and captions to another color within Picomail???

    Its very difficult to read considering the background is dark too! The rest of the text I can read as its a brighter color…

    • AFAIK, there’s no way to change the link color in Pico Mail. Changing the phone Profile’s theme might help though.

    • Dennis has the correct response — only way to change the colors used by PicoMail is to change the theme in use by the phone.

  5. For some reason it cannot read picture messages . I tried using an attachment , but it did not display a gif . I saved the gif , but when I opened it , picomail displayed only the first frame .
    I am not sure there would be a work around for the i465 .

    • PicoMail can display most every image format (GIF, JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, …), so perhaps the webserver is mis-identifying the content of the message/page. Per animated GIFs, PicoMail will only display the first frame of an animated GIF, however version 2.2 (due out in the next few weeks) adds support for animated GIFs, so you’ll be able to view all frames, not just the first one.

  6. i could not view a gif or jpg
    the jpg was taken on phone and sent to email then opened from email
    i465 could not in pico mail

  7. By the way , I would recommend to remove PicoMail 2.0 before downloading 2.1 . Otherwise you will need to highlight PicoMail 2.0 , then press the menu key , select update then select remove old program .

    • But, if you install 2.1 over 2.0 you don’t need to renter you account credentials

  8. I find that PicoMail 2.1 downloads html emails much faster on my i465 . It probably uses the same features as PicoWeb for that .
    Congratulations on a fine products PicoWireless .

  9. Changes from 2.0 -> 2.1 include:

    – New “Enable grouping consecutive links into ‘(N) links’ button” setting (default: on) that, when enabled, collapses several consecutive hyperlinks in an HTML web page or email message behind a single, displayed, button. This option helps naviagting past large groups of links that aren’t particularly relevant to the main content of the page.
    – Set the priority (High, Normal, Low) of an SMS/MMS message.
    – SMS/MMS to an email address in addition to a phone number.
    – New “Confirm deletions” setting (default: on) that toggles whether or not a confirmation message is displayed when a delete operation is performed. This option affects all delete operations within app.
    – Improved HTML content layout.
    – Numerous optimizations to improve the speed of app.
    – Numerous bug fixes.
