    Does the Shadow email client have support for the IMAP IDLE protocol?

    AFAIK not out of the box.

    Have you used FlexMail? If so, what is your opinion?

    I haven't used it recently, but when I did about 6 months ago I found it to be a resource hog. Needs another shot.

    I have not, but I understand the software (which of course does support imap idle) has had a makeover recently which makes it a bit lighter.

    WebIS certainly has a good reputation as a developer. A simpler solution may be to redirect your mail to a free Exchange hosting company.

    Can you point me to a free Exchange hosting company? I've been searching but haven't found much of anything yet. Optimally I would like to have free BES for use with my Curve but haven't had much luck finding that either.

    I believe mail2web is the most popular one, but there are many others around.

    Thanks. I just found that one. Do you know if these services use the standard BES ports? I'm assuming that is how T-Mobile controls access to BES (only opening the ports if you pay for the BES Enterprise add-on).

    Sorry, no idea, but Howard Forums is a good place to ask.
