Use ProfiMail Features to turn your Symbian into a Blackberry
I personally think that Lonelycatgames makes some of the best symbian applications ever; I find that Slick, X-plore, SmartMovie and ProfiMail are all great applications for my phone.
Today I’m talking of Profimal. As stated on the official website:
ProfiMail is a powerful e-mail client for mobile devices. It allows you to read your mail on go,
and send text with attachments directly from your device.
Send photos, recorded sound or simply text messages to friends, from anywhere.
Through your mobile Internet connection.
I’ve been using profimail since I got my Nokia N70, on 2006. It has a great number of functions, I use it to regularly check 2 email inboxes at the same time, it supports attachments and address book; it supports pop mail and Imap as well; Gmail works great with it.
But there is one feature that is really good to me. In the Menu, go to “Tools” and “Configuration”. Scroll down to “Auto-update time” and set the desired amount of minutes after which the phone will search for upcoming email. Then minimize the application.
If you put 5, for example, the phone will look for new mail every 5 minutes. Once tha mail arrived you will have a little blue mail icon on the upper rigt corner of the screen, even in standby mode.
Important note: if you connect using your 3g/hdspa connection, the phone will remain connected for all the time. So make sure you have a flat data rate with your provider. This trick also takes much battery, so be warned. In the video attached below you can see a sample of how all that works.
