    2) One thing I like about K9 is when you check the boxes to delete mail you get a couple buttons on the bottom of the screen. Very helpful when you go to delete a bunch of checked messages. Rather than menu button or holding.
    +1.1 (Needed the .1 for the 3 character limit thingy, which has obviously become less and less of an issue..... Carry on.)

    So I installed MailDroid to give a shot as there's a few things I don't like about K-9 and the stock client on my Droid X won't delete IMAP on the server.

    So far I really like it but I've got a couple questions:

    1) Is Secure SMTP broken? I can't get it to work and it did work on K-9.

    2) One thing I like about K9 is when you check the boxes to delete mail you get a couple buttons on the bottom of the screen. Very helpful when you go to delete a bunch of checked messages. Rather than menu button or holding.

    3) Speed. K9 seems to cache the messages and MDroid doesn't? Is that true?

    Other than those I love the program and will gladly pay for it!
    1. If you have cram-md5 it might be broken as I had a bug in my code, fixed already and will be released this weekend
    2. Slight issue because of my ads ;-) This would be one of those features I'd offer in the paid version (when I am out of beta)
    3. This all changes in the next release. MD in your version caches POP3 only and even that is a bit raw.

    @everyone

    OK, so the release is finally "planned" for this weekend. I figured, I'd give you a sneak at 'some' of the features that are done and fully working right now:

    1. Delete from phone only: Yes, finally!
    2. Filter (by read/unread/flagged etc.)
    3. Speed: Performance has gone through some crazy changes. As the beta testers will say, it has improved a lot.
    4. More stuff

    One note, filter is not my definition of search. I have search planned for a different release.

    I have been testing for maildroid and this new release is going to be great. Very smooth and has great fatures. Cannot give details as you will have to see for yourself when new version comes out.

    A request for next time. When I send an email a copy is put in the sent folder as expected. But... The copy is marked as unread (at least according to Thunderbird) which, while technically true, is counter to the Thunderbird and Outlook. Can these be made read?

    I agree to some points with handling of e-mail, however, the thing I do not miss with BB is the truncated messages and I like how MailDroid, displays all of my messages with out any issues. I cannot wait until there is a combined box that will show all new messages.

    Cheers,

    You're right!!!! and I also forgot about how I miss that little hour glass, battery pulls........

    Awesome. Can't wait for the new features. Just out of curiosity as a simple user how much time per day/week do you spend programming this? Are you working on other apps too or do you just have another day job?

    Has anyone had any issues with Maildroid notifications lately for IMAP polling? It only notifies me of new mail when I actually go into the account. Both of my accounts are IMAP but neither support IDLE/push. I had them set to poll every 60 minutes but that no longer works. I am not entirely sure if the problem is Froyo (upgraded to Froyo on my EVO 4G last week) or the newest version of Maildroid, but when I used to run Eclair and the previous version of Maildroid, there were 0 issues.

    I notified the developer of a similar issue via his blog on Slideme a couple days ago. He said no one else reported anything similar so I'm glad to see someone else is having an issue as well . I'm not using polling, but persistent connections. I noticed that if the connection breaks, MD doesn't always seem able to reopen it until I go into the app. Or, 90% of the time I go into MD, I select a mailbox, then it'll say "Loading..." after a second or two, the screen will clear and then nothing. If I refresh mailbox, the emails come up fine.

    I'm using the UWashington 2007e IMAP server.

    I have a day job and work at night. I actually am running at around 4 hours of sleep the last 6 months (kind of killed my social life). The real goal of this is to take over my day job. I spend 5-6 hours per day on MD...but weekends I try and relax.

    I do have a guess and it might be related to sleep mode. The next version will have a secondary option for sleep mode 'wake up". Having said that, it could be something else...hard to tell.

    Thanks for the update - your customer service rocks!

    I'm not sure what our Web host uses - it's HostMonster if that helps.

    I'd gladly pay for an ad-free version of MailDroid if it has that feature. Another neat feature that I'd pay for is a way to change the fonts, bold, etc. within the mail client. I know the Droid X's mail client allows you to do that..

    2 more things that would be great:

    1) When you get mail, have the notification take you to your list of mail rather than just to the account list.

    2) When I'm viewing a mail message how do I get to the next message? In K-9 there's a forward and back arrow at the bottom. I've tried swiping left right, up, down and nothing. I could just be missing it though.

    Love the app and looking forward to the new versions. Definitely going a keeper.

    To those with the issues of polling/push, I can't say for sure. However, the new approach in 1.35 changes how I talk t the server, so I imagine it will be fixed (or you will see a different issue :-)

    I am shooting for the release Sunday and as such, I am starting to cut some things out, but whatever I cut out will probably go in an interim release the following weekend.

    @maildroiddev:

    The "delete from phone, but not server" thing is my biggest issue with mail apps. Could do it on my old BlackBerry, but not an option in the native gmail app. K-9 was an alternative because it had this feature, but have been reading your threads and your responsiveness to requests and tweaks. I've been running MailDroid in the background to play with its interactions, settings, etc.

    Can't wait for (fingers crossed) the release that includes the leave on server option.

    A sincere thanks from me (and if I'm not being too presumptuous - all of us) for all your hard work.

    I have HTML content turned off by default. It would be nice to have a "show content" button like Thunderbird does, and to take it one step further to also have a "always show content from this address" as well.

    This is done for the release already. This feature will be in as an option per account.

    If I understand correctly, you mean hide/show image content or do you mean all html? I did this for the hide/show image (you can find a global setting as well as in the mail you can click menu --> show images). If you mean all HTML, I need to think about that. I do like the idea of 'show content from this address'.

    I came to post a thread about needing a .pps viewer and saw this thread. I told the developer I would give feedback in a couple of days. So let me say kudos for a great app and for his support.
    I get my emails faster then on my outlook express on my computer set up with verizon. I know this because I was sitting there and email came to the phone. About 3-5 minutes later my outlook has it. My computer is set to get mail instantly.
    Now the only thing I am having problems with is sometimes jpeg pictures are not showing. I have the Oi-file app installed, it has a folder set saying maildroid. Yet the attachment will not show. On the regular mail app I am able to just press the attachment and it is there. Understand I just might be doing something wrong cause some email I am able to get pictures.
    I am not sure if the app doesn't support this, but if I want to forward an email to someone. I don't see a way of doing it, the only thing I can figure out is save the mail to the sd card. Then go to contacts and choose to compose an email. Then attach it from where I saved it on the sd card.
    Also like I said are there any free apps that allow me to open pps files. I had documents to go on my bold, but I can't load the same one onto the captivate.
    To the developer thank you for the product and the support you have given.

    Hello, Been reading this thread and I'm trying maildroid now and I'm really liking it. The only thing I miss from K9 is being able to look at the notification bar when a message comes in and seeing the subject of the email. Is there a way to set this in maildroid? If not are there any plans to add this feature? I really like the ability to glance quickly at the notification bar when an email comes in and see if it is something that requires my immediate attention or just something that I can get to later.

    Any word on when we can expect the 1.35 update? I'm using 1.32 now, but don't want to make any further suggestions until I get a chance to play with 1.35 since it is supposed to be a relatively major update.
