I recently picked up a Nokia E61 and the phone is great but the e-Mail client isn't great for IMAP (it works but it tries to be too pretty, and is slow and clunky). Frustrated, I looked around for alternates and this last weekend (June 24) I picked up Profimal, and I really like it, but there are a few trouble spots I would like you to address in a future release:
- IMAP folders: I have a lot of folders and I would like to subscribe to only a few. I could hide everything one-by-one but it would be nicer if I could just choose the folders I want to subscribe to rather than have to go through the process of hiding many folders so only the three I want show up.
- Folders and sub folders: This may be an IMAP server issue, but I use Courier IMAP and it separates elements in its folder path with a '.' so my paths in the folders window show up as "INBOX.FolderA.FolderB" (When I specified that my root folder was "INBOX" then my folders looks like ".FolderA.FolderB"). I'm thinking that this really isn't a good way to display folders and sub-folders. Instead you should automatically parse the appropriate "path separator" (perhaps user configurable) and nest the folder display.
- External browser support: My E61 has a decent HTML browser, I would like to use it to view Web pages instead of the built-in browser that comes with Profimail. This should be a configurable option. Also, the "link parser" occasionally breaks as with this example:
http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/0,6566, ... 1265429217
This is one of the reasons why selection/cut/copy/paste is so important, in addition to opening a link in an external browser.
- Spell check: Would be really nice. Especially one of those check-as-you-type kinds of spell checkers.
- Integration with contacts and calendars: Your application can integrate with the built-in contacts and add sender information to contacts but what if the sender information is an attached vCard? As far as I can tell you have no support for this. Also, vCard files can contain one or more vCards. Support for this would be great. Also integrating with the built-in calendar when attachments that meet the iCalendar specification (iCal files have a .vcs or .ics extension) is highly desired.
Again, thanks for a great product and I hope to see these features in a future version.
