Default Which HTML Email Viewer?

Please Login to Remove!

There are a couple of "view your email in their original HTML" format softwares out there. Which one is your favorite?

None of them.
HTML email is crap.
I'll stick with plain text any day.

They don't really allow your email to be viewed in it's "original" format. It adds some viewing capabilities but it's not back to original HTML.

They both have trials, give them each a try.

I prefer and use BBSmart. The developer is an active member here also.
Neither will tell you it is true HTML, but they do quite well, and BBSmart's add to calendar or task feature is a great option for me.
You'll find lengthy threads and opinions on both in the Aftermarket Software section here.
Good luck

I do as well. I am not excited about either program in their current form.

What I've been agitating for is native html email support from RIM as an option, perhaps in a future OS release. Companies could include a "no html email" line in their IT policies if they wanted, individual users could turn it on (off by defaut) if they so choose, and everyone can make up their own minds about security/amount of data/desire for html formatting. Everyone wins!

Hopefully RIM will get with the now and include HTML email in a future OS. This isn't the 90s and a majority of email contains some HTML. For those who prefer plain text, I'm sure that would still be an option.
