I used webmail to pick up some info on my Android (HTC Wildfire) phone a few days ago. It picked up the email and attachment fine to view but would not download the attachment. When I tried to reply I entered the numbers/letters indicated and simply nothing happened.
Plan B, set up phone for "proper" email. Everytime I got halfway the screen blanked itself and I had to try again. I should perhaps add that this was with wifi from a foreign ISP.
Now I am not a regular user of phones at all never mind email but it does occur to me - could PN produce a simple "app" that loads one's email settings with minimal input?
Just a thought really....
