PicoMail 1.9

PicoMail was recently updated to version 1.9.  Downloading emails on my i776 seems faster in this version .

Pico Wireless lists the following new features in this version.

  • draft messages (outgoing email messages that can be saved and sent later)
  • video playback (if your device meets minimum capabilities)
  • configure outgoing message character encoding (utf-8, Shift_JIS, ecetera)
  • initiate phone calls from contact list
  • twitter.com support
  • numerous bug fixes

It features simple account configuration, unlimited email accounts, viewing of Word, Excel, PDF, WordPerfect, video and image attachments, viewing and sending HTML and plain text email messages, images, including PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP and TIFF formats, security via SSL, keyword search and automatic spam filtering.

  1. thanks but that didnt answer my question at all. does anyone actually read a question before they post an answer to it?

    • Diane, I don’t know what you mean as nobody had replied to your question when you posted this. I’ve since replied to your original question.

  2. Does using downloaded email apps such as picomail AND using built in email apps on the incognito interfere with email accounts? Ever since I played around with both my hotmail account wont work. Any suggestions? Please help!

    • Using apps should not do anything to make Hotmail stop working.

      Entering passwords on the Incognito is very tricky as characters don’t echo, it auto capitalizes the first letter and the upper case/lower case indicator doesn’t always appear.

      Some sites will lock your account if you enter the password incorrectly too many times. I don’t know if Hotmail does. Try logging into Hotmail from a PC and if it doesn’t work resetting your password by clicking the “Forgot your password” link.

  3. Other than the drafts , there is no real improvement over 1.7 for the i465 . With this slow processor it is hard to tell if it is faster . The browser does not like mobile websites though .

  4. PDF and WordPerfect: no for both clients

  5. Works well on the Incognito (Checked Yahoo, gmail and hotmail). Here is a comparison with the Incognito’s built-in e-mail client.

    Easy account setup across multiple accounts: yes on both. Picomail and Incognito both have default settings for at least Hotmail, gmail and Yahoo!.

    View e-mails in HTML: Picomail yes/Incognito no

    Microsoft Word & Excel: no to both

    View embedded pictures: Picomail yes/Incognito no (comes as a downloadable attachment that can be viewed)

    Uses up active program resources: Picomail yes/Incognito no. I usually can have three apps active at most. Incognito doesn’t like 4 lol. Incognito e-mail runs outside of active app space so I can have it run in the background constantly and have 3 apps open. With Picomail running I can only have 2 more active.

    Search e-mails: Picomail yes/Incognito no

    Picomail has a few other features that the built-in email does not such as the ability to act as a web browser. I will update this post tomorrow to see how Picomail’s spam filter works (I deleted today’s spam earlier).

    Picomail definitely has some nice features and advantages but for my general use, using the Incognito’s built-in client suits my needs well and having the extra app space comes in handy quite often.
