Default 3rd party email client over TCP?

Please Login to Remove!

I know this is probably considered blasphemy in our BB world, but...

Do you know if there is any 3rd party email client (POP or IMAP based) that runs on the Blackberry?

Here's why I might need it. When I travel (without my blackberry plan roaming) I only get GPRS connection, so BIS/BES type of applications don't work.
If there is/was a 3rd party email application that is to use the TCP APN then I'll be ok while traveling.

Any idea?

Wink A different Email App that works on Pearl

I use Flurry on my pearl and it works splendidly. It supports multiple accounts and although it doesn't incorporate an alert for mail in the program, you go to the flurry website and set up SMS alerting to new emails. A long way from push but is a nice app for being a free service. You need to sign up for the service at the Flurry website.



The flurry forums site contain links to the desktop download of the java files for installing from you micro sd card. Flurry Forum :: View topic - NEW FLURRY RELEASE: Ver. 01.02.18

I just downloaded and tried out LogicMail, this is very buggy, I get an error and it won't connect. Also looking over the app, I can honestly say Flurry is Robust in comparison. Just my 2 cents worth.
