RIM has said they would eventually release a native e-mail client for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Our guess is we won’t see that until the 3G/4G version is released. Nonetheless, 3rd party developers have been on the ball with pushing out their own native e-mail clients, which will support multiple services. The latest is aMail from AiFlex, which looks to support IMAP, SMTP and POP3 accounts with secure logon and password details over a secure connection. Also allowing easy to setup GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail and Live e-mail preset configurations, which only require username and passwords to setup.

Secure Access and local file security

  • Supports common standards of mail system POP3 and IMAP4
  • Access multiple mailboxes securely (uses SSL / TLS)
