Default HTML E-Mail > Empower vs. BBSmart vs. 4.5

Please Login to Remove!

Any opinions on what the best option is? I'm trying the trial version of Empower, and it seems pretty nice. However, I've read some good reviews for BBSmart as well.

Consequently, it sounds like native HTML e-mail viewing from OS 4.5 isn't going to happen anytime soon. All the early "previews" I've read state that this feature is not included in the betas. Any insight here would also be appreciated.

Many thanks!

HTML requires OS 4.5 AND a BIS/BES upgrade. BES is slated for later this year. Not sure when BIS upgrade will hit.

Both Empower and BBSmart have trials. Try them both and decide which you like best.
