I wrote about the Nokia Email client a few months ago and then last month at Nokia World they announced an updated version was coming. I just read on the Nokia Beta Labs blog that this updated Nokia Messaging version is now available to try out in beta form. There are a ton of improvements in this latest update, many directly addressing the concerns I had with things such as subfolders/labels in Gmail, syncing sent mail to your sent folder online, and faster performance.
Some of the highlights they listed for this release include:
* Support for Yahoo! Mail * Support for more Nokia S60 phones * Support for up to ten email addresses * Support for subfolders for IMAP email accounts * Support for Google Apps hosted email and other vanity domain email addresses * Flagged messages will automatically become starred messages in Gmail * More intuitive inbox navigation via a discoverable control bar * Faster opening of inbox * Sent email will be synced to your webmail’s sent folder for all email addresses
Future updated and information regarding the Nokia Messaging client, it is moving off of the Nokia Beta Labs site, can be read on the S60 Living blog run by Davis Fields, the product manager for Nokia Messaging.
I downloaded and installed the updated client on my Nokia E71 (simply visit email.nokia.com on your device) and this is just one other reason to keep my AT&T SIM in this outstanding device. The version numbering on my device showed it went from 9.03 to 9.04. Another reason for carrying my E71 most all of the time will become apparent to you all in the near future ;)
