Opera 11.10 gets HTML5 File API support, IMAP improvements

The crew in Oslo keeps plugging away at Opera 11.10, and the latest snapshot build includes a number of improvements to Opera's built-in email client -- as well as HTML5-related additions. On the IMAP front, Opera now supports special folders like sent items, spam, and trash. It also better handles duplicate items in Gmail -- such as those which appear in all mail and under your custom...

Sparrow 1.1 for Mac adds IMAP email support, Priority Inbox and more

Sparrow, the slick-looking alternative mail client for Mac, is no longer Gmail-only! With the release of version 1.1 -- now available in the Mac App Store -- Sparrow supports any IMAP account you've got. That includes MobileMe, Yahoo and AOL accounts, as well as any custom IMAP setups you're running on your own domains. Sparrow 1.1 also supports one of the most-requested Gmail features:...

Yahoo Mail finally fixes IMAP data bug

A while back, Yahoo! was pegged as the culprit behind some users' mysterious mobile data consumption. The problem, of course, was with Yahoo's IMAP support. While there was initially some deflection going on, Yahoo! has now stepped up and delivered a fix which stems the tide of those nefarious and wanton packets. As reported at Within Windows, Yahoo! updated its IMAP servers and mail is now...

Sparrow email client for Mac reaches 1.0, lands in Mac App Store

Sparrow, the gorgeous Mac email client released late last year, is now at version 1.0 and up for sale in the Mac App Store. Previous versions weren't stable enough to replace Mail.app entirely, but Sparrow has overcome its growing pains to become a solid Mail alternative. With support for multiple accounts, and UI design that borrows heavily from Twitter for Mac, it's no surprise that Sparrow...

Windows Phone 7 data leak problem traced to Yahoo! Mail app

Microsoft has admitted to Paul Thurrott that the "third party app" which has been responsible for mysterious data leakage on Windows Phone 7 is, in fact, Yahoo! Mail. The admission came only hours after Rafael Rivera had already proved this to be the case. Rivera noted that Yahoo! was transmitting about 25 times more data than it needed to. Yikes. Microsoft originally reported that this issue...

Find Big Mail lets you quickly free space on your Gmail account

My free Google Apps Gmail account has about 7.5GB of storage space, total. That's extremely generous on Google's part, but that amount of space does eventually fill up – especially if you have people sending you huge PowerPoint presentations, videos of their baby's first steps, or hilarious kitten photos in full resolution (because they have no idea what "resolution" means, much less how to...

Inbox2 does email + social networks in style, but not for everyone

Inbox2 is a "premium connected lifestyle application". I'm not making that phrase up -- it's from their about page. In simpler terms, it's an email client which also does Facebook and Twitter. And it's beautiful. Seriously -- this thing is in-your-face gorgeous. I love the color scheme! Since the premise is fairly easy to understand, I'd like to share a short list of pros and cons from my...

MailDrop automatically saves email attachments to Dropbox

Dropbox has to be one of the easiest ways to move files around. If you receive a lot of files in your email that you'd like to move into your Dropbox, check out MailDrop. MailDrop is a Windows executable that will watch a specific folder in an email account, and download any attachments on messages it finds in that folder to the folder you specify in your DropBox account. It can connect to any...

MailBrowser for Gmail plugin is interesting, but needs work

MailBrowser is a new Gmail 3rd-party browser plugin that sits in the sidebar, giving you more information about your Gmail contacts. The plugin works by downloading a complete local copy of your email archive from Gmail over IMAP, then cross-referencing it to your Google Contacts in your Google account. I should state up front that the MailBrowser plugin is in beta, and likely to...

reMail 2.0: keep your entire email archive in your pocket

I have to admit that I was wrong about reMail. When I wrote about version 1.0, I assumed that nobody would have a problem trusting reMail's secure servers to store and index their email messages for faster searching, and that nobody wanted to download an entire Gmail archive to an iPhone. Wrong, and wrong again. However, version 2.0 of reMail addresses these issues by eliminating the need to...

ReMail brings advanced email search to the iPhone

If you've got a ton of email that you need to dig through very efficiently, the iPhone's built-in Mail app might not be adequate to the task. That's where reMail comes in. It's a dedicated email search app that connects to your IMAP account to find the message you're looking for. ReMail's featureset is impressive, with an offline mode, autocompletion for your contacts' names, and a very sensible...

One of the latest brilliant ideas to come out of Google Labs is an advanced IMAP controls option that lets you mark messages for deletion without actually deleting them, and send your deleted messages to the trash instead of archiving them, Most importantly, you...

Have you got an iPhone and a Gmail account? If so, you're probably using IMAP, and you may not even realize it. What's IMAP?
