Question Does ANY Blackberry read HTML EMAIL?

Please Login to Remove!

Does any Blackberry read HTML email? I get a lot of html based emails and I'm seeking a device that opens and processes html email. Can anyone make any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

No, we don't. Maybe you do, but I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of Backberry users have absolutely no need for HTML e-mail.

On another forum the single most requested feature in a topic about what people would like to see added to improve email was HTML.

Email is next to useless for me on the BB. I dont even waste time anymore as all my emails are garbled jibberish. I only download the headers so I am notified of them. Then I use the Gmail app. or a PC to view them.

Then you have the wrong device in your hands, IMO.

And I am willing to take your money on that bet.

I'm sure the corporate guys won't want it, but for the webmailers.......we definitely need it.

You know that this forum has nothing to do with RIM, right? You need to ask them -- not us. ;)

I don't even see this as an issue. HTML would take several more seconds to download, and the first link of the email is usually the online version - one click and you're there.

I think the BB should have one of two features - 1) an OPTION to turn on/off html support OR 2) be smart enough to strip out the html code from those emails so you can actually read the message

Hate to drag this on but are you nuts? There are emails that come over in personal webmail that you have to scroll almost all the way to the bottom to get the info that was sent. Html is needed for some of us. I will be sending out my suggestion to RIM.

My clients (and I) would like to see basic html support. At least support the basic stuff that's usually in newletters, etc. Dont display the pictures, thats not even the priority. At least handle a place-marker for them so that its not gibberish and then the good text ... That way I can easily decipher the text that I need to read.

Or at least BES/BIS should identify the html tags and not send them through, just send the text.. How about that?

I'm pretty sure that BES 5.0 will introduce HTML support for e-mails.

I know for a fact RIM are well into the project for new BES but my statement above is pure speculation. to be honest with you it was a very breif conversation I had and I can't remember the vauge details.

Windows mobile 6 is supposed to support HTML and that's out there now. won't be long before others follow suit.

I guess I just don't let it bother me. Most of the HTMLs I receive have a "If you can't read this" link at the top, I just click and I'm there.

Perhaps you bought the wrong man-toy for your needs.
