Overview

LogicMail is a J2ME E-Mail client supporting IMAP and POP, and designed to run on RIM  BlackBerry handheld devices. Its goal is to provide an alternative to the service-oriented "push" E-Mail system that the device normally provides, so we can also use our conventional E-Mail services. The inspiration for this project came from the now defunct  Mail4ME project, as well as some of the initial protocol code. Currently in the very early stages of development, this project aims to grow into a versatile piece of software.

The big focus in this client is on usable IMAP support, which seems to be an afterthought in some other clients. Why IMAP first? Well, two reasons: First, I use IMAP personally. Second, the IMAP protocol allows a lot of optimization for constrained latency and bandwidth that POP does not provide. As such, I suspect the IMAP implementation will always feel much faster than the POP one. However, be assured that I have implemented POP support too, since I know it is important to a lot of potential users.

Downloading

Right now you can find the source code in SVN, if you dig through the Sourceforge project page. I'm using a BSD-style license for this project, except for the reused code from Mail4ME. Those parts are under the Enhydra Public License, which is pretty close to the BSD license. I eventually plan to rewrite most of this code, and have rewritten a lot, but for now I'm still using it do take care of a few tedious bits of low-level socket functionality.

If you want to try it on your BlackBerry handheld, the easiest way is to point your mobile browser at the "Over-The-Air" installation link: Until the 0.3 release is completed, it is strongly recommended that you try the latest development snapshot build. The other download links will no longer be updated with snapshots, and will now only be updated with actual releases.
