The developers of LogicMail let us know they have released the initial public beta release of LogicMail 2.1. This release builds on the capabilities of 2.0, and adds in the most user-requested feature of all time, background message polling.

Key new features of 2.1 are:

  • Background server polling*
    • Home screen notification icon
    • Configurable refresh intervals
    • IMAP: Can check both INBOX and non-INBOX folders
    • IMAP: Uses IDLE to keep the connection open when possible
  • Can automatically connect and check for mail on application startup
  • Can auto-start on device startup
  • Improved setup wizard, including configuration of new features
  • App now hides instead of exiting closed (Exit option still available)
  • Option to mark messages read/unread without viewing them
  • Supports the IMAP COMPRESS extension (optional)
  • Support for OS7 hybrid-touch devices (e.g. Bold 9900)
  • Faster detection of stalled network connections
  • Supports OS 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0
